Watch Lucy Dacus join Hozier on stage in New York City

1 week ago 8



Hozier brought Lucy Dacus on stage with him to perform ‘I, Carrion (Icarian)’ in New York City on Friday (June 7) – check out the footage below.

Last September, Dacus, Julien Baker, and Phoebe Bridgers invited Hozier on stage at a Boygenius show in Boston to perform ‘Salt in the Wound’. Now, the Irish singer-songwriter has returned the favour.

Hozier wrote on Instagram after the show at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, “Thank you so much to the incredibly gifted Lucy Dacus for joining me. I adore and admire your work so much, and am so honoured you would join me last night for ‘I, Carrion’. So much love!”

Dacus, meanwhile, shared Hozier’s post to her story, writing alongside it, “Beautiful song beautiful voice beautiful night.”

‘I, Carrion (Icarian)’ appears on ‘Unreal Unearth’, Hozier’s latest album, which came out in August last year. The album reached Number One in Ireland and the UK, and Number Three in the US.

Earlier this year, he became the first Irish artist since the late Sinead O’Connor – and only the fourth ever – to top the Billboard Singles Chart in the country with ‘Too Sweet’, taken from his recent EP ‘Unheard’.

Last year, he spoke to NME about his career so far, and in particular the huge success of his debut single, 2014’s ‘Take Me to Church’.

“I think you just check out of [looking at] the numbers. I try not to quantify to myself what a song has done based on its numbers,” he said. “For me, when I wrote it, I was super-proud of it. And I’ve been incredibly proud that this song – of everything I’ve written – was the one that was a crossover hit.

“It was an unusual pop hit at the time and an unusual sort of radio success. It’s been a gift for me. But I think some internal janitorial work [is necessary] – like, stepping away from cluttering your head with ‘OK, what number is it on now?’ I’m just so grateful that it’s connected in the way that it has.”
