Hozier’s first new music from his forthcoming album is a strong nod toward’s the power of protest.

In the modern equivalent of sleeve notes which he has written to accompany the song he says:

“This song was intended as a thank you note to the spirit and legacy of protest; to the artists who imbued their work with the vigour of dissent, and a reflection on the importance of that tradition in the context of the rights, and lives, we enjoy today. My hope for this video is much the same.”

He is shaping up to be among the biggest music business stories of 2019 already and reports from the gigs he played at the Academy in Dublin last week he is ready to step right up.

Here is the video which was released today.
