‘Nina Cried Power’ is the lead-track and features the soul legend Mavis Staples as a guest vocalist. It’s a song that stays true to Hozier’s soul-gospel leanings but digs deeper and more confidently vocally into that sound, while shouting out vocal legends alongside the titular Nina Simone. The rest of the songs recall the acoustic guitar ballads he previously established along with the bluesy-rock of his early work. Have a listen to all four songs below.
