Hozier New Album ‘Wasteland, Baby!’ Climbs to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

Monday 11 March 2019

Irish artist Hozier began the month of March by releasing his 14-track rock album, titled Wasteland, Baby!, and it has had staggering results.

Six years after his hit song ‘Take Me to Church’, Hozier releases this hour-long album taking a similar tune to his previous work. While each song has its own flair, the feeling associated with the album is joyful and upbeat.

Hozier’s gospel-like sound combined with a playful sound gives listeners a deeper connection to the songs, heavily relying on vocals and using instruments as only minimal backup. Per usual, the artist’s new release is emotional, intense, beautiful, and serene.

Wasteland is the first rock album to reach the charts since Mumford and Sons’ Delta in December 2018. The album follows ‘Nina Cried Power’, which was released in 2018.
