IRISH music star Hozier is not only topping the charts here but he's hitting the charts across the Atlantic too.

The Bray native (inset) is currently touring in America and is set to appear on Saturday Night Live this weekend - although he admits it's strange to be making it into the US charts.

"I'm very fortunate with America in that the song is starting to be played on Billboard Top 40 stations," he said.

"It's not what I set out thinking this would be. In that regard I don't know how the album will go down with a younger Top 40 audience. But my priority is making music I'm proud of," he added.

The former Trinity College student also admitted that he was worried that he may have appeared on US chat shows like Ellen DeGeneres and David Letterman too early.

"At the time it felt terrifying and I was afraid that it was too soon. But those performances did fantastic things for us and I'm much more confident now," he added.
