Hozier has opened up about Homer Simpson's cover of his 2013 hit 'Take Me To Church' and the use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) in music.

The singer spoke about the impact of AI, as well as its use of "silly" and "harmless" things. He also had his say on Homer's cover of his hit, which shows the cartoon character's trademark deep voice singing the song. 

“I think that stuff is the more sort of silly, harmless stuff. It is kinda weird, yeah. I think it’s just fun. I think it’s just people playing with the technology for stuff like that. The more complex, long-term stuff of AI when music catalogues are being trained for generative stuff is where we’re in the bigger questions…”, Hozier said. 

On this special Homer Simpson cover, he also added, “I haven’t heard my voice being used on other stuff. I think I’ve heard maybe ‘Take Me To Church’ as my voice as maybe Homer Simpson or something like that”.

Earlier this month, Hozier bagged his maiden number one in the Irish singles chart with 'Too Sweet', a year on from hitting top spot in the Irish Album Charts with 'Unreal Unearth'.
