It all went down at BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge when the Irish singer/songwriter decided to tackle the sixth In the Lonely Hour single, and we seriously cannot get enough of it. Alongside his band and some back-up singers, Hozier somehow revamped the somber tune into a lively Motown-esque jam.
Since both talents are set to storm the stage at our 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival, we can only hope that they'd take the opportunity to churn out a live collabo of "Lay Me Down." It might sound like a long shot, but maybe it isn't too far of a stretch considering Sam's recent tweets about the rendition.
