Unreal, Unearth


Unreal, Unearth / Hozier

The third album released from Irish musician Hozier offers an intimate and touching journey into the musician’s head and heart.

Composed during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Unreal, Unearth grapples with themes of personal isolation and loneliness, providing a sweeping score of sixteen tracks. Inspired by Dante’s Inferno, Hozier frames his narrative as a journey below the earth, descending into a personal underworld of heartbreak – before breaking the surface in a tentative return to a world just beginning to reopen itself.

Deeply moving and profoundly personal, Unreal, Unearth is yet another example of Hozier’s mastery of literature and lyrics, and and offers even broader strokes of his incredible artistry.
