In a new interview with CBS This Morning, Hozier revealed the good news that he plans on releasing new music soon.
The “Dinner & Diatribes” singer discussed the art of songwriting and previewed “Jackboot Jump” which he played for crowds during his last tour: “All around the world you'd think that things are looking rough/ But the jackboot only jumps down/ On people standing up/ So you know good things are happening/ When the jackboot needs to jump.”
While Hozier said he's unsure if the song will make it on the next record, he did reveal fans should keep an eye out (and ear open) for new music soon. He also said he wrote a lot on the road during tour and went back to songs and ideas that he hadn't finished for the last album.
“I know that in the next few months I'm looking forward to releasing some new material,” he said.
On the topic of music, Hozier explained a bit more about the 'why' of his songwriting and telling the stories he does.
“Some ideas are sufficient unto themselves, some ideas they want to be sang because this is a fun song. Some of them you're kind of reflecting on certain layers of that song and what you're trying to say or how authentic is the voice that's saying it,” he explained. “Others… maybe this bowl of Cornflakes doesn't need to have politics in it… this is just a love song let it be its own thing so they don't require too much examination.”
Hozier's sophomore album, Wasteland, Baby!, was released in 2019 and hit No. 1 on the charts.
