Hozier has just released his new EP "Nina Cried Power." These four new songs - one a collaboration with Mavis Staples - mean we can't wait for Hozier's second album.
The day Hozier fans have been waiting for since 2014 is here! He has finally released new music.
"Nina Cried Power" dropped at 7:30 pm GMT and fans are already losing their minds. The four songs run the gamut from protest anthems to apocalyptic love songs; they are:
"Nina Cried Power"
Featuring the legendary Mavis Staples, this song honors many brave artists and activists by name and is an exciting new sound for Hozier.
You'll realize a few seconds into the song what the acronym stands for, in this darkly mystical-sounding love song about the end of the world.
Subtitled "Common Tongue." Fans of "To Be Alone" and "Angel of Small Death" will love this.
Those who loved "In a Week" and "Cherry Wine" from Hozier's first album - this one's for you.
Some lucky people in Dublin got to hear the new songs at two rehearsal concerts Hozier played this week and gave his new material rave reviews.
The EP is the product of nearly two years of work that kicked off in early 2017, when Hozier (full name Andrew Hozier Byrne) got to take a much-deserved break after years of touring thanks to the whirlwind success of "Take Me to Church."
Hozier's second - as yet untitled - full album will launch in early 2019.
For now, he's about to embark on a North America tour that kicks off September 15 in Ottawa, Ontario, and concludes October 22 in Vancouver, BC, with stops in Chicago, New York, Boston, DC, Los Angeles, Austin, Seattle, and more along the way.
