Hozier's 2013 hit “Take Me to Church” launched him to international success and is a great example of who he is an artist – Hozier can pack one song with huge musical moments as well as intimate ones. The title track of his new EP, Nina Cried Power, is a similarly rousing song that pays tribute to artists who have raised their voices in protest, like Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, and Mavis Staples, who sings on the track. We'll hear that song and more in a live performance today, and Hozier tells host Talia Schlanger how his songwriting has changed since "Take Me to Church." On the next World Cafe.
