Hozier Shares Official Video For ‘De Selby (Part 2)’, Starring Irish Actor, Domhnall Gleeson

In anticipation of his third studio album, ‘Unreal Unearth‘, out this Friday, Hozier has released the official video for his latest single, ‘De Selby (Part 2)’, starring Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson. 

Drawing inspiration from the song’s title that shares its name with a character from Irish literary classic, ‘The Third Policeman’, the visual finds the Tony Award, Golden Globe, and Critics Choice-nominee traversing deserted landscapes as a man who is unknowingly dead. Watch the Wolf James-directed video here.

Speaking to the visual, Hozier said,

“I’m very proud to release this collaborative video for ‘De Selby (Part 2)’ featuring the incredible Domhnall Gleeson and directed by the great Wolf James. Working together with such creative talents toward this piece was a pleasure, and I’m honored that Domhnall Gleeson would bring his remarkable skills and this stunning performance to my work.”

The GRAMMY®-nominated / RIAA Diamond-certified singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist is gearing up to release his forthcoming album, ‘Unreal Unearth’ tomorrow, August 18. The 16-track LP features previously released singles, ‘De Selby (Part 2)’, ‘Eat Your Young‘, ‘All Things End‘, and, ‘Francesca‘, which is currently top 5 at Triple A radio, as well as 11 brand new songs including a feature from Brandi Carlile on, ‘Damage Gets Done’. ‘Unreal Unearth’ will be available globally both digitally and 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. Pre-order here.

Hozier followed a triumphant surprise set at Glastonbury with an acclaimed sold out show at Ally Pally Park last month. With over 1 million tickets sold worldwide, and recently wrapping a sold out European, UK and US tours, he will bring his massive international ‘Unreal Unearth Tour’ back to the UK and Europe in December, which will see him conquer arenas, including London’s OVO Arena Wembley, which has sold out already.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
