Back in March, Hozier dropped his new EP, Eat Your Young. It was the first time the musician had released music since his 2019 sophomore album, Wasteland Baby!
Now the musician has shared the official music video for ‘Eat Your Young’, the titular song of his EP.
Starring Hozier and Ukranian-American actress Ivanna Sakhno, the ‘Eat Your Young’ music video features an audience of adults and children watching a play as the protagonists perform similar, yet contrary shows on two stages, working in tandem.
Taking to social media, Hozier shared, “I want to thank the incredible Ivanna Sakhno for bringing her talent, skill, and care to this piece. The marvelous Jillian Meyers for keeping us all in step and the wonderful Han of Handsome Devils Puppets for recreating Ivanna and me for the stage. Thank you also to Jason Lester, our wonderful director, and Laura at Our Secret Handshake. I hope you enjoy our little horror story :)”
His new EP features songs that will be on his forthcoming album, Unreal Unearth, which is set to release later this year. His new record will reflect upon two of the nine circles of hell: gluttony and heresy.
This summer and fall, Hozier will embark on his sold-out ‘Unreal Unearth Tour’ across Europe and North America.
