Music Mondays: Kiesza covers Hozier
Your insider catchup with what's new in music this week.
Kiesza covers Hozier
In an effort to prove she's not just an awesome electro-pop singer and dancer, the Hideaway woman Kiesza (pronounced like Kayza), has released an acoustic cover of Hozier's Take Me To Church.
Speaking of Hozier, he has a new song...
Before his album comes out in September, Hozier has debuted a live video version of the song In A Week, that will feature on the album. The duet, recorded at Killkenny Castle with Karen Crowley, is about a couple of lovers whose bodies are found in a field. Can't wait for the dance remix.
But seriously, you can get a download of the track if you share it via the hozier-inaweek.com site.

Peak of the empire
Top of the rock
