Hozier has covered Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Do I Wanna Know?’

Irish songwriter’s self-titled debut album is out next week.

Andrew Hozier-Byrne aka Hozier turned up to Radio 1’s Live Lounge studios this week to perform a cover of Arctic Monkeys.

Ahead of the release of his own debut album, the Irish songwriter brought a melodically shifted version of ‘Do I Wanna Know?’. Gone with the leather jacket’ed gusto, he’s turned the song into a gently lifting, open-hearted sweetheart, making Alex Turner out to be a softie of a lyricist.

Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church’ single is out this week, with a debut LP out 22nd September on Rubyworks / Island Records.

He plays a sold out London KOKO on 17th September.
