In other news, Hozier today shared ‘Unknown/Nth’ the third single from his upcoming album. Discussing the track, the singer-songwriter said: “The title comes from the expression of an unknown but large number, i.e. ‘Nth’. The song reflects on having your heartbroken by someone you trusted. You think you learned, and it happens again.”
‘Unreal Unearth’ is set for release on August 18 and can be pre-ordered here.
In other Glastonbury happenings, mystery band The Churnups were revealed to be the Foo Fighters, who took the the Pyramid Stage for a one hour performance earlier today. During the set, frontman Dave Grohl was joined by his daughter Violet to perform ‘Show Me How’ from new album ‘But Here We Are‘.
