Hozier stopped by the BBC Live Lounge to perform "To Be Alone," an unreleased song off his upcoming debut record. This performance accompanied a cover of the Arctic Monkeys' "Do I Wanna Know."
The bluesy tune is about a young man and how much he enjoys the company of his girl. Hozier writes about sensuality in such a poetic way, which is especially apparent in the bridge, "I don't know what else that I would do / Than try to kiss the skin that crawls from you / Than feel your weight in arms I'd never use / It's the god that heroin prays to."
Hozier also shows off his vocal abilities about two minutes into the video, hitting some high notes straight on with a beautiful, pure tone. The young musician is constantly surprising listeners with his abilities whether it be vocally or lyrically. He's definitely an artist to keep an eye on.
