Hozier has dropped a visual for “Almost (Sweet Music),” from his latest album, Wasteland, Baby!
The Blythe Thomas-directed video pays tribute to jazz and blues music, which inspires much of Hozier’s own work. The clip splices together footage of musicians in their element and dancers cutting loose, along with shots of Hozier performing in a nondescript warehouse.
“Since the song references music so much and is about the experience of listening to music, the concept of this video is kind of drawing from the jazz tradition and just a lot of musicians and a lot of dancers whose disciplines stem from that tradition,” the singer explained in a statement.
