    I’m very proud to present the video for 'Nina Cried Power', directed by Jon Hozier-Byrne and Patrick Ryan.

    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.
    Ireland has undergone a socio-cultural sea change, the results of which will benefit generations to come. We are witness to a new Ireland waking to the consciousness of itself; a kinder, more inclusive nation. This video is an attempt to acknowledge just a handful of those who have fought for this new Ireland, and whose work continues to inspire me.

    Thank you to Christina Noble, for showing the limitlessness of human kindness, and its ability to achieve the seemingly impossible.

    Thank you to Bernadette McAliskey and Eamon McCann, who fought for the bitterly-resisted equal right to vote, and who bore witness to atrocity and would not be silenced.
    Thank you to Joe Caslin, who literally coated Dublin city itself with reflections on our capacity for compassion as a people.
    Thank you to Saoirse Long, whose honesty revealed not only our own failures as a people, but laid bare the true face of what barred the way of progress for women’s reproductive rights.

    Thank you to Panti Bliss, who remains a leading voice advocating for inclusion, and a standard-bearer for the new Ireland we are watching unfold.

    Thank you to Victoria Chimera for fighting tirelessly for equal opportunities in education.

    Thank you to Anna Cosgrave, who provided real leadership to my generation, and brought new widespread visibility to the issue of reproductive rights.

    Thank you to Simone George for her indelible spirit, and for fighting injustice in its many forms.

    Thank you to Grace Dyas whose decisions in work and life give to us an example of bravery and conscience.

    Thank you to Sinéad Burke for pushing tirelessly for inclusivity in her industry and beyond.

    Thank you to Maria Walsh for using her platform to promote gender equality, and the right for everyone to love who they love.
    Thank you to Colm O’Gorman, for his unwavering dedication to human rights and his fearless speaking of truth to power.
    Thank you to Ellie Kisyombe for reminding us of the meaning of home.
    Thank you to Stephen Rea for the work he does both for UNICEF, and for Ireland itself.

    Thank you to Sam Blanckensee for their important work on gender recognition legislation.

    Thank you to Florence Adebambo and Aaron Edo for reminding us of the bright future that awaits those who have joined us from afar, and how that future needs to be fought for.
    Thank you to Blessings Moyo and Lucky Khambule for reminding us how much further we have to go, and how we must strive to do better.
    Thank you to Mavis Staples, for giving to the world a timeless example of how worthwhile the raising of one’s voice is, in song and in protest.

    Thank you to you all for your work, for joining us on set and allowing us to play you the song for the first time. You are all truly inspirational figures, and this video is for you.

I think he means that it's not enough just to know about humanitarian issues (being 'woke'), it's important to stand up and protest or do whatever you can to bring about positive change (use our individual and united 'power').

Everything is poetical. The song's description, the song itself, the people in the video, the rawness of feelings the song evokes. I'm not Irish. But can feel it all. And I love to read comment section of every song/ video of Hozier. It's grateful to know that there are people who share such an unfathomable passion for music.

He strikes again! Genius is a word often bandied about and rarely justified in today’s culture but I think most would agree that Hozier is just that! Self effacing, eloquent and socially aware. His importance as a wonderful writer, musician and storyteller should be revered. His music brings attention to things often overlooked by the general public. It’s a great time to be Irish we aren’t perfect and we have a long way to go but we are becoming the benchmark for tolerant society worldwide, shaking off the shackles of an often dark and misguided past. Here’s to a wonderful inclusive future
