better love.

Don’t you hate when you love an artist or a band… and you cannot wait for their next release… but when it happens, you’re disappointed? I get that they grow and evolve and all that. But it sucks when they change so much that I just don’t love them anymore. It feels like a lost a friend. A really good, very intimate one.


hozier - better love.

That is not what happened here.

I have been dying for new music from Hozier… because he is brilliant and I can hardly bear listening to anyone else right now. This has been going on for weeks. So… when I heard there was a new song, I got nervous. Yeah, I’m a freak.

Of course, I worried for nothing, as I often do.

It’s just one song… but I’ve had it on repeat for days. It is one of the most beautiful songs on earth. And he wrote it for Tarzan. Fking Tarzan. He just makes everything beautiful. And I get an incredibly talented man at a piano… sigh… a very close second to a talented man with a guitar.

I hope you enjoy it. I’m sure I’m enjoying it enough for everyone. But… if you hate it, I’m not sure I want to know. Especially since I have no idea how that’s possible.

    Yes to the nervousness and fear of/actual disappointment! Music is highly intimate, just as you described.

    He rocks, thanks for sharing the new song!

    It works backwards for me. I usually don’t like the new release at first, because it’s a departure. Then, it grows on me, and I end up loving it.

    • That happens to me sometimes, too. Either with a few songs or an entire release. So I go through the sadness and disappointment… but then I get over it. I’ve got some favorites right now that I kind of hated the first time I heard them. But sometimes, I really don’t ever get over it… and that makes me sad… I don’t like to lose any of those intimate “relationships” I have with music…
