Ahead of his two sold-out shows at the 3Arena, Hozier releases a live version of new song 'Jackboot Jump'.
Currently, Hozier is touring the world but that doesn't prevent him from writing and releasing new music. Fittingly, he has today released a new track, 'Jackboot Jump (Live)', along with a live performance video of the song.
The musician wrote 'Jackboot Jump' while on tour as a tribute to traditional protest songs (Pete Seeger, Woodie Guthrie) in light of current political unrest and oppressive regimes. The recording features Hozier and drummer Rory Doyle and is the live audio from his recent show in El Paso, TX.
Speaking about the track, Hozier says, "I'm excited to share this new track 'Jackboot Jump', which is the first piece of new music coming early next year. This song was written and recorded live on the road, so it seems fitting to share it now while the tour wraps up. Thank you for letting me share it with you at these shows if you caught it. Much love!"
Hozier will return home to Ireland next month for two sold-out shows at Dublin's 3Arena on the 10th and 11th December.
He has also created an original podcast, Cry Power, in partnership with Global Citizen. Recent episodes featured Annie Lennox, Bono, Mavis Staples, and activist Nick Grono. Future guests include Marcus Mumford and more.
