Hozier’s ‘Inferno’-Inspired EP Goes Through Hell And Back But Still Rejects Redemption


Hozier, the singer most famous for criticizing the Christian tradition in his 2013 song “Take Me to Church,” depended on Dante’s “Inferno” as the inspiration for his 2023 album and most recent EP, “Unheard.”

Released in March, “Unheard” features four songs intended for Hozier’s third studio album, “Unreal Unearth.” Using Dante’s epic poem about his journey through hell as a framework for the album, Hozier describes the cyclical nature of human beings as we experience grief and loss and attempt to recover.
