Hozier does dirty blues on new single ‘Jackboot Jump’, new project dropping next year

Luke Sharkey

There’s new Hozier out in the world and it’s straight out of a dive bar stage.

Hozier, obviously not letting international superstardom affect his creative output, released a live version of new single ‘Jackboot Jump’ yesterday.

Hozier - Jackboot Jump (Live)

It’s a crash course reminder that Andrew Byrne was a superb blues musician before he was the forest king we know today. The performance captures Hozier and his drummer carry the whole tune, with some virtuosic guitar picking simultaneously sounding the bass and soprano lines.

It’s definitely a change of pace from the very polished Wasteland Baby, released last year.

Not just that, the Bray native has also promised new music in the new year.

Maybe the new project will be a returning to roots kind of sound? Byrne is obviously capable of producing any sort of sound he sets his mind to, so we’ll be delighted to hear where he goes next.
