Even as a child, he loved the blues and would listen to Nina Simone for nights on end on a small CD player. Today, the folk rock musician from Ireland has his own devoted fans: His hit “Take Me To Church” had more than 900 million plays on Spotify. His new album, Wasteland, Baby!, the first in five years, contains 14 songs – husky, mellow and magnificent. Currently touring the U.S., Hozier, 29, will be playing Germany in early September. He let Lufthansa Magazin peek into his luggage while on a layover in Berlin.
