It’s the return of In A Week: Our look back at Hozier highlights and happenings from the previous week.
As we’re playing a bit of catch up here, we’ll make this a double edition!
January 1 to 16, 2016
We did a feature on the 2015 Year End Charts and how Hozier did in the UK, Ireland, Australia, USA and Canada. (Spoiler: Amazingly well!)
Another couple of Platinum discs for the wall!
