One of these songs is “Wildflower and Barley” featuring Allison Russell. Hozier began by admitting he probably shouldn’t talk about the release too much, since there hasn’t been an official announcement yet. However, he did say “So I guess next month I’ll release about four songs … unreleased tracks, you know.”

He continued, “We were still deciding as to which songs will go on the first … EP. So this dear, dear friend of mine, an incredible artist called Allison Russell … she recorded a song with me called ‘Wildflower and Barley,’ which I kind of wrote during the pandemic … just referencing the stillness and on the eerie sort of unhappy quiet of like living in the countryside or living in the city, seeing empty streets … I wrote sort of a playful song around that and Allison joins me on that.”

Hozier concluded by saying that “there are collabs” on the EP, so it’s possible there will be more guest artists on these unreleased songs. Fans will have to keep their eyes peeled next month for new Hozier content.
