Hozier has revealed the video for his new single ‘Someone New‘.
The video stars a familiar face to fans of the TV series Game of Thrones. Actress Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell in the TV series, stars in the video as a young woman on the lookout for love.
“I find Hozier’s music always deals in the most visceral way with the contradictions that make us human,” she said of her appearance in the video. “He is an incredibly talented lyricist and the most wonderful musician and vocalist. It was a joy to be a part of the ‘Someone New’ video, which for me explores the struggle in all our heads between the real and imaginary; it plays with ideas of how loneliness and isolation are two different things and the weight or lightness we can attach to loving another person.”
The video was directed by Anthony Byrne, with the idea written by the artist’s brother, Jon Hozier-Byrne along with David Reilly from Stoneface Films.
