It's not the first and it won't be the last cover of Hozier's anthem, 'Take Me To Church' but it's certainly one of the best so far.

The English pop star has given the song a smoky, smouldering, slow take.

The song has been a number one hit in 12 countries and a top 10 in more than twenty other countries.  In the US it spent 21 consecutive weeks at the top of the Hot Rock Songs chart, the second longest in history, before it charted at number 2 in the Billboard Hot 100.

Hozier was nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammys.
