New Music Monday 9/10/18: Hozier – “Nina Cried Power”

Oh man there were TOO many options to choose from this weekend. Gavin James, has an upbeat fun song, Lukas Graham is back with some singer/songwriter acoustic vibes, Dua Lipa teamed up with Diplo & Mark Ronson, Alice Merton, Jonas Blue collaborated with MK, MNEK’s Body is fun, Sigala’s song is a Friday anthem…BUT I’m choosing:

Hozier (Featuring MAVIS FUCKING STAPLES!!!)- Nina Cried Power. It’s Hozier’s first single since 2014 (way too long if you ask me).

There’s so much uptempo soul in this song. We got a taste of that in Angels Of Small Death on his first album, and now we have Nina Cried Power, which fucking rocks! His voice is still super deep and amazing which is good to know he hasn’t changed his iconic sound (which sometimes happens after a new artist’s first album – I’m looking at you Fitz & The Tantrums).

Oh and did I mention Legend Mavis Staples is on it? in the chorus and outro? How amazing does she sound on this song? The song is fantastic without her, but then you get to her verse and it just blows you away. She takes the song to an entire new level.  Definitely listen to the entire song.
