Hozier is delighted and ‘very flattered’ at the moment, as Demi Lovato has covered his hit song Take Me To Church.
Demi recorded her own version of the song for Live Lounge, a segment on BBC Radio One and it has gone down a storm, being viewed over two million times in two days.
The Wicklow man took a few minutes to share his delight with Demi, posting a quick message to the American singer on Twitter: “Hey! Huge thank you to Demi Lovato for doing this gorgeous cover of TMTC in the #LiveLounge today. Very flattered!”
To which she replied, “Thank you!! It’s such an incredible song!”
In an interview shortly before recording the cover, Demi said, “The first time I heard it, it was on the radio, and I was like, ‘wow, this is on pop radio.’ It’s not your typical pop song. I think I even tweeted, ‘Thank God that somebody put this on the radio because this is incredible music.’”
