An Irishman Abroad

Hozier (From The Vault): Episode 311

August 31, 2019

This week, we delve all the way back to November 2015 when Andrew Hozier Byrne joined Jarlath for a conversation in London while he was working on, what we now know as, the incredible Wasteland Baby album. Today, we bring you a few of the highlights of that 60 minute conversation in which Andrew tells the fascinating story of writing Take Me To Church, his terrifying performance at Oxegen, selling his music to Dr Dre and 'that' tricky Gay Byrne interview.
