Hozier has launched 'Cry Power' podcast

Hozier has unveiled the podcast ‘Cry Power’, which he has created in collaboration with Global Citizen.

The podcast series will see Hozier speak with musicians, artists, writers, campaigners about how to take action and change the world.

The first episode of ‘Cry Power’ podcast features Annie Lennox as Hozier’s guest and is titled Feminism Is a Global Issue'.

Other episodes in the series will feature Bono, Marcus Mumford and Mavis Staples – who featured on Hozier’s hit single Nina Cried Power earlier this year.

“It’s a joy to announce that I’ve been working with Global Citizen on a new podcast series, #CryPower,” Hozier has siad speaking about his new venture.

It’s been enlightening and inspiring, sitting down with people I have such admiration for and hearing the stories of how they sought to change the world.
