Irish singer/songwriter Andrew Hozier-Byrne or more commonly known by his stage name, Hozier has just recently released his debut self-titled album. Having already been released in Ireland, international fans of the budding indie rock star can purchase the album in October after its global release. Appearing out of nowhere on the indie folk rock scene in 2013 with his hit single “Take Me To Church”, Hozier instantly turned heads. Now readying his debut album, Hozier is set to take the spotlight.
Scottish indie rock group Belle & Sebastian will return with their ninth album, Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance. The album will be released through Matador Records and has reportedly been produced by Ben H. Allen III. He has worked with other notable indie bands like Animal Collective, Washed Out and Deerhunter. The album is planned for a January 20th release.

Set to release the album this September, it was recently announced that the project had been scrapped. While this is unwelcome news to fans of the hip-hop collective there is still good news to be announced regardless of the cancelation.
