I've lived in Ireland for nearly 7 years. I love the country and the people so much. Hozier has a beautiful way of bottling the essence of a forgotten Irish culture that is deeply connected to nature and fascinated with death and decay.
I find it somewhat ironic though, that even though people often imagine him as a forest spirit, Ireland is completely devoid of natural or ancient forests!
Shockingly Ireland was robbed so bare that at one point only 1% of it was covered in trees. Things improved marginally and now forest cover is at 11%, but most of these forests are monocultures and offer absolutely no refuge or benefit for biodiversity!
Compare that to a country like Germany where about 30-40% of the country is covered in forests.
It's even more sad, when you consider that trees have historically been incredibly spiritually and culturally meaningful, so much so that cutting down an oak tree was a crime comparable to murder in the past!
I think it would be beautiful if people who connect with his music, would help with regenerating Irish nature. I keep thinking Hozier should use some of his wealth to restore Ireland natural rain forests!! It would be a beautiful legacy. Imagine walking though a young forest that was born out of a shared appreciation for the feelings his music evokes in us!
Oh how lovely to have my comment pinned! If anyone is interested in reforesting organizations in Ireland, I'd recommend Hometree Ireland, Reforest Nation, or the Wolfgang Reforest Project!
Do NOT support Coillte! They are a greenwashing monoculture producing organization!
Also, if you're interested in planting trees in general, switching your search engine from Google to Ecosia could be another really easy thing to do, which could create some good! They don't support projects in Ireland yet, but in many other countries!
@Ina Oh wow thank you so much for the information!
It makes me really happy that people seem to resonate with my comment! Since we're here and appreciating the lovely atmosphere I wanted to share some good news!
A story I saw a while ago that really made me really happy was about an old irish farmer, who turned his 40 acres of farmland into native woodland! He did so to leave a legacy and to be buried on his land when his time comes! It's called the Martin Neary Woodland Park! Is there a better way to be laid to rest than in a forest that you planted for future generations to enjoy?
In other AMAZING NEWS Hometree Ireland just announced The Wild Atlantic Rainforest Project!
They plan to transform 4000 acres (!!) into wild woodland!
Also a loud voice in Ireland for a positive change has been Eoghan Daltun, who is one of the few people who manages a healthy woodland in Ireland! He recently published a book called An Irish Atlantic Rainforest. I recommend looking him up as he shares some beautiful photos of what a real Irish tempered rain forest should look like!
I hope reading this made you day a little brighter and gave you as much hope as it did for me! All the best
Thank you so much for saying this 🙏 as an Irish person or makes me so happy to hear this! Its absolutely devasting that so much of our culture and land was stolen and beaten from us. I'm glad people do care about restoring the beauty of our country 😊
I love this so much as I do Ireland. My dad is Irish and I cannot wait to go back there
Hozier is a sort of cross between a Celtic bard and Orpheus. His often nature-centric lyrics are reminiscent of the former while the latter manifests itself in the magic of his voice, which causes all who hear it to stop and listen intently, hearts stirring.
hozier is orpheus reborn nothing can change my mind
@bones I wouldn't even be surprised if this ended up being the truth, haha
He actually sings about mythology so often in his songs. Including the story of orpheus in the beginning of his song "Talk" Whe I realized he was singing about is I was like HELL YEAH
He's actually the voice that urged Orpheus, not Orpheus himself
in case anybody wanted timestamps, there you go ❤️
00:00 - My Lagan Love - Hozier's cover
03:55 - Wasteland, Baby!
08:17 - Like Real People Do
11:48 - Cherry Wine
16:03 - From Eden
20:21 - Movement
thank u sm!!
I love you
I almost read “My Lagan Love” as “My Lasagna Love” 😂😅
If Hozier called to me from the woods, singing lullabies and hymns, I wouldn't fight it. I would just drop everything and join him.
This made me realize just how easily the fae could kidnap me.
Don't believe the tales, they're just slander from those who were too afraid to go. Everyone who went stayed because they're happier, they're living in a dreamworld and eternal summer twilight and unending revelry. Don't fear, the heart knows true beauty because that is how it knows what is good. Follow the music. Enter the dream.
@Art Thingies that sounds like something a fae would say
@Achilles Sprained His Ankle don't be afraid of what you cannot comprehend. Revel in what beauty you can perceive and marvel at what beauty surely lies beyond the limits of your consciousness. You can touch it, you know, if you really reach for it.... further... further... don't be afraid, it might look like a long way down if you fall, but you are so very close. Just... a little.... further...
@Art Thingies mom the fae's are trying to lure me into the woods again
@Art Thingies that seems like something a fae would say...
my cat loves watching bird videos on youtube so when she heard the bird noises she ran towards me with the speed of light only to see me - her servant- scroll through the comment section and praise the bug lord
This is the best comment i got so far 🥺 this def made my night ✨✨✨
This is the most wholesome shit and I absolutely 110% adore your cat 💖✨
Your cat is an ipad kid
@Le Anna update : the ipad kid has grown up and isnt an ipad kid anymore but we got another kitten and are trying to turn him into one
@mango smoothie this is the most devastating news I have received in the last 48 hours
something about hozier's music makes me so proud of my culture. i'm irish born and bred, but i never really felt connected with my country's roots until listening to his music. something about his melencholy + beautiful lyrical/melodical style, along with his absolutely godly voice makes me think of old ireland and the tales of celtic gods + young warriors, exploring lands new and old and meeting strange yet beautiful creatures on the way.
 - this got way more poetic than i imagined, but i can't help but be completely transported by hozier's music!! i wish i was able to go back and listen to his music for the first time again.
This comment ❤
After I discovered Hozier music couple years ago and learned where he's from I have been so passionate about your beautiful culture ever since. It has also became one of my biggest dreams, to visit Ireland. And even I'm from the Middle East, I feel somehow connected now to these old wonderful stories
i am not irish, i’m from the southern part of america. my triple great grandmother was irish, but she was only alive for a bit of my dads childhood, so sadly i never got to meet her. however, hozier also makes me feel connected.. just, to the earth. his music reminds me of sweet emotions as well as hurt and anger, but it’s all put so poetically. he’s truly moving. ireland seems so beautiful. something about that part of the world, europe, it calls to me. it’s a dream of mine to visit ireland and scotland. i feel like i would feel at home despite not being irish myself. i’m happy his music has made you feel connected to your culture, i can’t imagine how that feels.
I def think this applies to some of his songs. Others of his songs are way more blues and gospel inspired
let's call it the hozier effect :) i am not irish at all, nor celtic for that matter, but his music, as you said, transports me to a feeling or state of mind where i feel like i might've been celtic, a long long time ago.
there is something about his music that deeply resonates with who i am and it's fun to read the same for you in your comment.
Okay but how is “In the woods somewhere” not apart of this 😭
Or in a week!!
Just as Hozier writes songfic about mythology, so too do his listeners mythologize him back like this, but taking themselves along for the ride. It's a whole new level of art imitating life, a new kind of being drawn behind the veil by a spirit, and I'm here for it. :D
I love you
Well now I want to put on a lacy/flowery nightgown and run out into the middle of a field surrounded by tall trees at 4am, and just lay and listen to the crows and starlings and sparrows sing. This is so calming, thanks!
Glad you like it
It's like walking in the woods and then hearing someone singing from afar, you follow that voice and you see Hozier singing with the sunlight streaming through the trees - surrounded by the animals of nature as they listened to him utter poetry from his mouth. You too watched - amazed.
I want a Hozier kind of love. Calm, content and steadfast
you and i both
Playing this at 3 am hits differently ✨
All hail father nature 😩✊
all hail father nature 🛐
Father? Lol, that’s funny. It’s ‘Mother’
@Minnie we're talking about Hozier here honey 💀
so we're following the king of the forest now? I approve 💓
Yes maam we do
Playlist like this make me wanna be alive makes me feel something worth living for his music is so inspiring and beautiful and the vibe of this video setting is what makes me feel alive thank you keep them coming ♡♡♡
made my day thank u so much glad u enjoyed it
Yes, same for me 💙 I am emotionally struggling and this playlist came up, instantly made me feel whole and cry. I love Hozier sooo much, his music is literally life saving for me atm !
I once had a dream I met Hozier in a forest he had a stick and was looking at forest walls also there was a river made of music a greyhound was trying to lead me into and Hozier was like no don’t lol
this is wholesome 😭
The birds chirp as you walk through the brilliantly green forest, in awe and heart light as you walk barefooted on the soft moss, your spirit feeling full, you inhale deeply and exhale, the tension leaving your body. You walk for a while more before you hear a melody, mistaking it for the sound of the slight breeze in the trees and start to hum along as you continue walking. You walk for a while longer before realizing the music is getting louder. You finally see where it's coming from and your breath catches, the song changes and it's something that makes you feel like a kid again, the birds start trilling happily, even louder than before as they come to rest upon the trees around the mysterious musician, the man's calming voice carrying through the leaves and echoing into the forest pleasantly, you sit down quietly and lean against a tree to listen, content with remaining here for as long as the music and mysterious bard does.
The essence of the forest lurks in my dreams while I dance to light melodies
Drunk , slurring poetry
My minds at peace , my heart caged still by mystic prophecies,
I’m all alone when I realise heaven is a place on earth ,
The beauty forgotten , I’m lost in the forest of such beautiful dreams , I wander , like Frankenstein forlorn and deprived of delight , I look for solace in the light of the generous sun , in the slight breeze and the old wise trees,
okay poet yes go off
I adore Hozier's music, and as a Pagan, his music has always hit home in a way that isn't very usual (Similar feeling from Avi Kaplan, I suggest y'all take a listen)
I absolutely LOVE this playlist/mix/experience. It's comforting and feels similar to laying in soft grass under the dappled shade of a tree with your hands tangled in your lover's, maybe turning over to just cuddle in the cool warmth too lost in each other and relaxing to notice the bugs.
I love Hozier's simple appreciation of music and nature (two vitally important things to me)
It's nice to listen to this as I study Sociology after the morning shift at a local Jam and Preserves place. It's nice to hear the birds and see the flowers, imagining myself to be in spring, when it's still wintery outside. Thank you for this
OMG I adore Avi!
Voz , Letra, surreal Hozier. Amo 💕.
Blessed be the algorithm for bringing me this on a day of misery and pain. Thank you, pumkxns, for creating this thing of peace and joy.
Truly glad it found u in a moment of need. hopefully no more miserable days for u 🙏
There is just certain artists that embody something so beautiful and celestial and Hozier is one of them!
this was an idea that was so valid and true and personal and honestly, thank you so much for it.
thank you so much glad you liked it
hozier fans are my favorite people. their minds are too complex for this world -- causing them to find comfort in dreams and desires. this is why they love hozier. he explains the way he sees beauty in the world and the people around him. which is something that they so desperately wish they could see.
i love you guys.
Going into the forest sounds fun and all but not if you are paranoid and have dense senses specially towards your surroundings. My friend and I explored a forest together a couple of times, but we had a particularly bad experience one day. We'd usually stay on trails but that day, we decided to go deeper. Being in an unfamiliar place she got anxious and i was unfamiliar with the wild life in it. A big spider crawled unto my back and i didn't even noticed until i saw it coming out if my shoulder, there were holes all around too. And we got to see a moose, who knew they were giants? But apparently you're not supposed to luck eyes with one. My friend had to drag me into hiding because i was just standing there like an idiot staring at the moose. It got annoying how she was always on edge and with her "What ifs". The last straw was when she started thinking that something was watching us and that there was definitely another person there with us. Lmao i got mad and scared at that point so I got us out of there before she starts seeing something that was clearly not there. So lesson learned lol, if you decide to go in a stroll in the forest, stay in the trails and don't bring your paranoid friend into a new path.
This is definitely in my Hozier Sings You To Sleep Playlist💜...a big comfort and soother..this is amazing...💕
I also like there one called "hozier but you're in your car and it's rainning" (I something like that, I'm not sure of the wording :p )
@theuncutlegend no you got it right that's like the first one in the Playlist I think..
This is such a well curated playlist. As I was listening I imagined myself walking in a rainforest trying to get nearer to a waterfall. Behind the waterfall Hozier is singing. With each song I felt nearer and nearer to the waterfall. And when From Eden started playing it felt as if I am at the bottom of the waterfall and the music is the loudest. Such soul cleansing experience
This reminds me of the summer's I'd spend with my uncle, we'd fish, swim, and we even made a makeshift raft out of old barrel's once. It reminds me of when I was younger and innocent, and the times where I didn't know how hard the world is. It reminds me of when I was ignorant of my mother's hatred towards me, those summer's with my uncle was the most I've ever felt happy, I just wish my uncle didn't go down the path he's chosen today. Good playlist of nastolgia to me👌
One day I will be old enough to appreciate him
Magick is real, in every little fern and water-tumbled stone. You just have to look a little harder, but sometimes it will fall upon you all by itself
If anything helps me meditate and get more in tune with the fae, it's Hozier singing. His voice is magick itself
This reminds me of an artsy photo I saw on Pinterest where there was a field and a mossy tree stump that looked like a human. And someone had commented "Hozier, is that you? Working on your new album?" 😂I'm sure Hozier's fan base is one of a kind. 🤣❤ Also this is THE Most Wholesome video ever ❤🔥
This is utterly goregous. I clicked on this randomly, thinking it would be good background music to study to. Little did I know that I would be completely moved by this music. I feel so weirdly connected to it. Beautiful.
this is one of the most beautiful playlists i've heard, it's literally breathtaking!
Casually turns into a god while singing From Eden
As someone who goes through day by day with a lot of anxiety, thank you so much for creating this
From Eden is a truly beautiful song. I love it so much
This is so oddly specific and I am honored to enjoy it lol
The fact that this video doesn't have a single dislike really says something
one of if not my favourite playlist atm, thank you so much for creating it! ❣
you're most wlcm glad u like it
i'm sorry i was listening to this while on my 🌠 nostalgic depressive🌠 mood, and holy shit this version of from eden made me ascend to another plane (and grab a whiskey cause, woof).
I'd love to see Lisa Hannigan and Hozier make a song together, it would be beautifully heartbreaking
não consigo me cansar de ouvir essas musicas
Ye had me til he started drunkly bellowing at a tree around minute 16. 😂
I've been overthinking my life and how I've been performing in college, but this playlist calmed me down. Thank you for this playlist :> I'll be listening to this while I do my morning walk.
This playlist is a transcendent gift and awakens the wild in my soul.
Just here to beg for a longer version of this
you're an angel for doing this ❤️
I need that version of Like Real People Do pleaseee(:
This has recently become my comfort playlist 🖤 Very much appreciated :>
glad to hear that 🙏🏻
Me too absolutely
same here it's so comforting
This is beautiful and exactly what I needed I’m absolutely in love- I would love to see another Hozier playlist with Would that I and Shrike
Omg. How could i live so long without this?
Please put this on Spotify podcasts so I can fall asleep with it on 😢
Hozier touches my heart that echoes in places I never knew existed and I want to remain there.......
This is just soooooo gooooood my spirit has cleansed
Thank you for this ❤️ I just wish there would not be adds as we listen it to sleep :(
I do this non profit i dont think there’s anything i can do about them im so sorry :(
Guess I'm heading straight for the forest and never coming back to society again
The Great God of the Forest doth bless us.
i love this! where did you find these acoustic versions?
most of them are from his other voices performance
@p u m k x n s ok thanks!
This is my go to song for sleeping
Change is inevitable. You can't always control your circumstances, but you can rise to meet change to the best of your ability, with fortitude, kindness of heart, integrity and dignity.
What an incredibly specific aesthetic
Oh my goodness you included his cover of Lagan Love 😭😭😭 thank you so much
thank you so much for making this playlist! what is the first song btw?
His cover of my lagan love
@p u m k x n s tysm!
So hauntingly beautiful x
A rhyme' ~ an unworked puzzle. Found' in lost corridors, of the picturesque' mind. Piece laid down, in snug' fit. To complete an off-slight thought' edged to end. Be alter' of-it, for life's reason. Or just to the gain' briefly, and short. A chuckle, with' an accompanied' grin. Wandering aimless' by vacant rooms. Where the imagined, are left in time' to spend. After master's of such resident's has hasten, to decide' upon it's boundary. And final arrival is noted' cordially. As to when' the shone' of festivities, shall delintly' offer, and' begin.
a great playlist!!!😭💖💖💖💖💖💖
If you saw a random drunk guy walking into the woods, blurting out music aloud, would you follow him?
with a voice as entrancing as hozier's i probably will
If he sings good, absolutely!
Thank you so much for this🥺
you're most wlcm
I am hoping I have consent to go on this mystical journey.....we aint creepy like those other people. Consent is Qi.
this is so good omg♡♡😭
the back door had been left open, a thick morning fog of cicada screeching and cricket chirping and dirt-rain smell occupying the space of the kitchen, dripping from the countertops and clinging to the wallpaper. her feet stood cold in the warm dirt, bare, hands at her hips, squinting through the rays to look for him. it hadn't been the first time this had happened - he was hopeless water, pressured, bottled, free-flowing, and she kept the windows locked too often, went to bed too early. she was blaming herself all over again and writhing her nightgown in her fists when a familiar tune, deep and longing and purely his, harmonized with the matutine mumble.
"it's not your fault, love," he hiccuped. last night's clothes, empty glass bottles, his dirty nails scraping the strings of his guitar, curled up against the twisting tree roots. "it's never your fault. it's me, it's me."
she joined him down there in his arms. "i wish i believed you."
he pressed a kiss to her forehead, and played his music.
Does he turn into a bear at the end? I feel like that would make him happy
This is so magical
The only Bad thing about this playlist is how short is :c
omg i love this so needs to be a whole lot longer
This was… an EXPERIENCE
Where is this live version of like real people do available?? I love the strings in the background
this is the best thing that i have ever discovered
this video made my cat crawl all over my nightstand trying to find the birds in the speaker.
I love when ppl comment with story of their pets reacting a certain way to this playlist it makes me so happy 🥺
The best thing I have ever listened to
I’m literally begging where can I find this rendition of like real people do
Question: what version of Movement is this? I love it
My dog loves listening to this! 😍
so this is what heaven sounds like
I'm running into the forest and living there for the rest of my life now, I don't care
I can't believe I found this on SoundCloud oml
AAAAAAAAAAAA THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!
Glad u like it 🥺
@p u m k x n s I love it!!
From Eden sounds like it’s been tampered with…am I just being nitpicking, or does someone else hear the difference? Other than that, love the combo of bird song and his song!!!
it was slowed down and reverbed to make an ethereal effect so his voice in there changed a lil bit, but I like that ^^
you really should credit the photographer of this image
I just know Brittany Broski would eat this up
Has anyone thought that maybe he fell in love with a fea being?
amo amo amo
That's really really sweeeeeet
Has the same as jethro tull songs. First song has a vibe of a slow paced "jack in the green"
Mentally I'm here 😴
