Incredible chart news for this Irish star!

Just when you think things can't get any better for the man from Bray. Hozier has well and truly cracked America as his debut album opens at number 2 in the US Billboard 200 album charts.

Spurred on by his incredible appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend, Hozier's self-titled album sold 58,000 copies in its first week.

Appearing on hit US programmes from The Late Show with David Letterman to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Hozier has been slowly taking over the American music scene.

He is currently touring the United States and Canada, before returning to our shores next month.
