Hozier has revealed his plans to take some time out of the spotlight to work on his next album.

The Bray native has written the theme song for upcoming blockbuster film The Legend of Tarzan, but he warned that the track, entitled Better Love, would be the last new music fans would hear from him for some time.

“I’m going to take some time off so this is the last thing I’m going to be putting my name to for a while,” he told RTE TEN.

The Bray native released his hugely successful self-titled debut album in 2014, but said he won’t be rushing the follow-up.

“I’m going to disappear for a while and work on the next album, in a similar way to how I worked the first time round, go to a very quiet space and just see how the demos take shape,” he said.

While the 26-year-old remained tight-lipped on what we can expect from his sophomore album, he also dropped hints that there may be a side project in the works.

“I might have an idea… We’ll have to wait and see. I’m still trying to navigate what’ll take place on the album and what will maybe exist outside of that,” he said.
