Nina Cried Power is the first single from Nina Cried Power EP, and features American rhythm and blues and gospel singer Mavis Staples. Song inspired by the legacies of artists like Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, Billie Holliday, James Brown and Mavis Staples – who lends her vocals to the song – and “crediting the legacy of protest.” It’s a testament to his love of American rock and roll, a celebration of its gospel and R&B roots with musicians like Staples and Booker T. Jones, who contributes his organ-playing both to “Nina Cried Power” and other songs peppering the EP and forthcoming album.
"Nina Cried Power is about crediting the legacy and the result of protest. It is a thank you note to the spirit of protest." - Hozier for Billboard
