Hozier's long-awaited EP is finally out
Hozier's EP is now available to listen to online, and we are absolutely delighted.
One of Ireland's biggest musical acts has released a new project for the first time in four years.
The long-awaited Nina Cried Power EP is available to listen to online.
Hozier has kept a low profile for the past while but has been more active as of late.
The Bray man performed at a #Stand4Truth rally that coincided with the Papal visit, and is currently in the middle of a series of gigs in The Academy.
The EP is only four songs in length and Hozier himself says that Nina Simone was a major tribute for the project.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, he said that Simone inspired the title song, referring to it as "a song about protest songs."
And if this wasn't enough good news for you, the man himself said that this was just a 'small taste' of what's to come on his upcoming full-length album.
I’m thrilled to release the Nina Cried Power EP on September 6th. This collection of songs is an example of what I’ve been working on in the last while and will be a small taste of what is to be expected from the upcoming album. https://t.co/4BF7hsFCfZ pic.twitter.com/dneUIHU5Ez
