Today, Hozier has released the official video for “Almost (Sweet Music)” – watch HERE. Directed by Blythe Thomas, the visual is an ode to music from the jazz era that inspired the song. “Almost” is the latest single lifted from Hozier’s sophomore album Wasteland, Baby!

In speaking about the video, Hozier says: “Since the song references music so much and is about the experience of listening to music, the concept of this video is kind of drawing from the jazz tradition and just a lot of musicians and a lot of dancers whose disciplines stem from that tradition.”

Hozier wrapped the first leg of his extensive North American headline tour in Spokane on Sunday. He will return to the US in May for additional tour dates and festival performances at Hangout Fest, Boston Calling, LaureLive Music Festival, and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. Hozier will also perform prominent sets at Lollapalooza, Osheaga, Outside Lands, and more.

Following headline shows in the UK and Europe, Hozier will continue his Wasteland, Baby! Tour across the US and Canada this fall. The North American run kicks off on October 17 in Portland, OR and sees Hozier traversing the West Coast, including a performance at Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theatre on October 25. Hozier will then head east for a five night residency at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom in November. See full routing below.
