    Columbia Records has signed Irish musician Hozier, who will be releasing his debut full-length in the U.S. in 2014.

    Born in County Wicklow on St Patrick's Day, Hozier gained worldwide attention nearly overnight when he posted the video for his song "Take Me to Church" in late September.

    The gripping black and white video, directed by Brendan Canty, highlights the turbulent plight of the LGBT community in Russia via the story of two gay men targeted by a homophobic gang. The powerful video brings life to the emotional song, which touches on the influence of religion on humanity.

    It's very current and topical, visually speaking, and the music is so powerful and arresting. You will be moved.

    Watch the video for "Take Me to Church" below.

    Are you excited about Hozier? WE ARE!
