Hozier has premiered his new music video for “Nina Cried Power” co-directed by Patrick Ryan and Jon Hozier-Byrne. The video features Hozier, Mavis Staples, and 20 additional artists and activists listening to the song for the first time and their reactions. You can learn about all of the featured artists and activists at hozier.com.
To celebrate the release, Hozier shared an introduction to the video via Facebook Live which you can tune in to NOW and on demand this week. Stay tuned after the video for an interview with Hozier and Mavis Staples!
The Facebook Live also encourages fans to donate to the ACLU in honor of the causes supported by those featured in the video in addition to the 20th century protest singers honored by Hozier in “Nina Cried Power.”
“Nina Cried Power” is from Hozier’s new 4-track EP, Nina Cried Power, which released last week. It is the first collection of new music since his 2014 critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. Hozier kicks off his sold-out North American headline tour next week at Ottawa’s CityFolk Festival.
