Incredible: Hozier Covers Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Do I Wanna Know’ For BBC Live Lounge

This just gave us chills...

Hot off the main stage at Electric Picnic and now into the BBC Radio One studios, there is no doubt that 2014 has been an incredible year for Irishman Hozier. 

Joining the lovely Fearne Cotton in the Live Lounge, Hozier performed a captivating acoustic performance of debut-hit track, Take Me To Church, that received immense praise from folk online.

However it was the Wicklow native’s rendition of an Arctic Monkeys’ classic that had people taking to Twitter to provide 140-character rave reviews.

Putting his own unique spin on Do I Wanna Know?, admitting to host Cotton that he had just a few hours practicing under his belt, Hozier pulled it out of the bag and gave us chill while he was at it.

Watch the breathtaking performance in full below:
