Someone New Video

Feast your eyes on the sublime new video for Someone New.

The video stars one of the brightest stars of the acting world – Natalie Dormer known for her roles in Game of Thrones and The Hunger Games.  Speaking of her involvement in the video Natalie said,  “I find Hozier’s music always deals in the most visceral way with the contradictions that make us human. He is an incredibly talented lyricist and the most wonderful musician and vocalist.

It was a joy to be a part of the ‘Someone New’ video, which for me explores the struggle in all our heads between the real and Imaginary; it plays with ideas of how loneliness and isolation are two different things and the weight or lightness we can attach to loving another person.”

Hozier himself added, “I was thrilled to be able to work with Natalie Dormer on this project. She’s an actress of incredible talent and intelligence, and a joy to work with. It was also a pleasure being able to work with my brother, Jon Hozier-Byrne and David Reilly of Stoneface Films on the treatment, and the fantastic director Anthony Byrne.

The song was based on momentary and fleeting infatuations of the day to day coming from a place of loneliness, and the yearning for a feeling of connectedness. Watching it come to life was a pleasure and I feel honoured to be able to work with people of such a high calibre.”
