Hozier covers Sam Smith's "Lay Me Down" in the Live Lounge

Irish artist Hozier has launched Radio 1's Even More Music Month with an incredible groovy cover of Sam Smith's usually calm ballad "Lay Me Down." Hozier does not cease to disappoint, with his rich, soulful vocals taking control of the melody, the track is already given more of an energetic feel. The driving bass and continuous drum beat keep the rhythm section on point, allowing the gospel choir to provide exceptional backing vocals at the chorus. 

Hozier has once again managed to turn a hit single into his own unique masterpiece, proving himself to be the very talented musician that he is. The artist has also announced a UK tour which will take place in early 2016, with tickets on general sale on Friday 4th September.
