Hozier says “never been more ready” to make follow-up to self-titled debut

– Hozier has said he’s “never been more ready to make music” as he begins work on his second album, NME reports.

The singer’s debut album ‘Hozier’ was released in 2014, featuring breakthrough single ‘Take Me To Church’.

Hozier told Beats 1: “I’ve never been so eager to make music. I’m itching for it. In a big way. If this opportunity had happened at a different time I would have just been spent, but I had had maybe six days of quiet and I can’t really write on the road. But when it all stops and things are quiet again you’re just ready for things to fall out of you. I have a phone full of memos and loads of notebooks with little melodic ideas.”

Talking of his need to be able to write away from being on tour, Hozier added: “There’s many times recording on a phone and trying to transfer it into my laptop and into software. It doesn’t feel the same.”

Hozier has recently shared new song ‘Better Love’ from the forthcoming The Legend Of Tarzan movie, made by Harry Potter director David Yates, starring Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie. Hozier said: “It was a challenge. The director was a really sweet guy, but the conversation was ‘You have three weeks.’ That’s Hollywood right there.”
