Acclaim for Hozier’s recent shows and newly-released music has been widespread. The Guardian dubbed the lead single ‘Nina Cried Power’ as “startling”, with The Evening Standard commenting in their 5* live review that “Hozier’s watertight backing band wreathed the choruses in four-part harmonies, elevating his new songs into the realms of the celestial”.
Hozier’s EP ‘Nina Cried Power’ is out now via Island Records, and has already been streamed over 8 million times on Spotify alone in its first week of release. Consisting of four brand new tracks written and performed by Hozier, the EP’s lead single features legendary soul/gospel singer Mavis Staples, with iconic musician Booker T Jones on organ.
