Hozier has unveiled new single ‘Unknown / Nth’, taken from his forthcoming album ‘Unreal Unearth’, due out on 18 August 2023.

The release follows an overwhelming response from fans after the Irish singer-songwriter first shared a teaser of the song on TikTok last year.

Discussing the track Hozier commented, “The title comes from the expression of an unknown but large number, i.e. ‘Nth.’ The song reflects on having your heartbroken by someone you trusted. You think you learned, and it happens again. It also recalls ‘Ninth’ or the 9th circle of treachery. The song throws away the old premise of angelhood. None of us are angels. We are all going to break someone else’s heart or hurt another person. Musically, there was a minimalist approach. In that cold empty place, something else happened.”


‘Unreal Unearth’ will mark Hozier’s third studio album to date. The 16-track LP will also feature songs ‘Francesca’, ‘All Things End’ and ‘Eat Your Young’.

The album will be available digitally as well as in various physical configurations including standard black LP, raw ochre D2C exclusive LP, burnt clay Amazon exclusive LP, light umber indie retail exclusive LP, CD, and cassette. See the exclusive vinyl pack shots below. Pre-order now from here
