The collaboration Indie music fans always knew they needed has finally arrived as American singer-songwriter Noah Kahan has announced a brand-new collaboration with Irish superstar Hozier.
Kahan initially hinted that he was working with the Bray-born musician on Monday when he posted a video of comments asking for a duet from the duo with the caption “Taking notes” on Instagram.
He then posted a video on TikTok yesterday confirming the collaboration. “Unfortunately, you are no longer allowed to listen to Northern Attitude,” he bluntly told the camera.
“The reason is you can now only listen to the version featuring Hozier. Northern Attitude with Hozier is coming out and that is the only version of the song that I’m comfortable with you listening to, from now until forever”, he said, before playing a brief snippet of the new version of the song.
Kahan and Hozier have long been compared to each other, adopting a similar style of indie infused pop. In the past, Kahan has even cited Hozier as a source of inspiration.

However, this is not the first time the pair have duetted, as Hozier joined Kahan onstage and performed Northern Attitude during a show in Nashville last month, and prior to that Kahan had accompanied Hozier on stage to perform a rendition of Work Song at a concert in August.
Both musicians are also set to headline the High Water Festival in South Carolina in April 2024.
The collaboration will be released on Friday, November 10. However, Kahan will be performing at the National Stadium in Dublin on November 15 as part of the European leg of his Stick Season tour. He’ll also be back on February 8, 2024, at the 3Arena.
