Hozier busked in a New York Subway station last night, and it was class


Casual commute.

Yesterday, Hozier dropped his new video for Dinner & Diatribes, taken from his new album Wasteland, Baby! 

The video features actress Anya Taylor-Joy, best known for her roles in the films The WitchSplit and Glass and was directed by Anthony Byrne. His credits include DarknessPeaky Blinders and Ripper Street.

Speaking about the track, Hozier said:

“This was a fun track to write. I had the riff for it for a long time, a riff that I hadn’t written anything for. The lyrics lament boring company and focuses on the places you just want to leave.”

And last night, in a pretty exciting turn of events for some morning commuters, the singer decided to do a surprise gig.

In a New York Subway station…

The Irishman performed with his guitar, a keyboard player and a group of backing singers at the Rockefeller Centre subway station.

And as you can imagine, a crowd quickly formed.

He sang Take Me To Church, and the people adored it!

“Dropped in on some New Yorkers’ commute home tonight for a quick subway session,” he captioned a video on social media.

Hozier also posted a few more videos to his Instagram story, with performances of Nina Cried Power and Movement.

Can you IMAGINE being on the way home from work and bumping into Hozier?

Here’s hoping he comes home and does the same in a DART station, or at a LUAS stop.
