Hozier & Annie Lennox

Hozier has released a new podcast in partnership with campaigning group Global Citizen. Named ‘Cry Power’, he will speak to musicians, artists, writers and campaigners about how to take action and change the world. The first episode, out now, features Annie Lennox.

“I’ve found the making of the ‘Cry Power’ podcast to be enlightening and inspiring”, says Hozier. “Sitting down with people I have such admiration for and hearing the stories of how they sought to make a change with what was available to them has been encouraging and uplifting”.

Global Citizen co-founder Simon Moss adds: “Global Citizen is extremely proud to partner with Hozier to find exciting, creative, new ways to spark conversation around the ‘global goals for sustainable development’ – and inspire more people to join our movement to end extreme poverty. 2020 is a vital year [for this] mission with just ten years left to achieve our goal, and we can’t thank Hozier enough for helping drive the necessary action to support the world’s most vulnerable people”.

Future guests including Mavis Staples – with whom Hozier worked on the song ‘Nina Cried Power’, from which the podcast takes its name – Marcus Mumford and Bono. Subscribe and listen here.
