Hozier Releases New Album “Wasteland, Baby!”: Streaming
- Irish singer-songwriter Hozier released his second studio album “Wasteland, Baby!” on March 1, 2019. It is his first album since 2014.
The album features guest appearance from American rhythm and blues and gospel singer Mavis Staples and comprises of 14-track.
"What [I'm] still trying to find in the worst case scenario the warm, still-beating heart of humanity." Hozier said. "And something that's in the kindness, the warmth and the capability of people, even in the imagined last moments, to still issue a squeeze of the hand."
The album includes the songs from his 2018's EP "Nina Cried Power".
He said, "If there is a breadcrumb trail for people to follow it and check it, I would be thrilled. Whether it's the work of The Staple Singers or Joni Mitchell, or Patti Smith, or Woody Guthrie, there's such a well there to be drawn from, and that was part of the intention there."
