The song Nina Cried Power is written by Mavis Staples & Hozier, produced by Hozier & Markus Dravs and was released in September 9, 2018.

"Nina Cried Power" is a classic look on protest songs. The song is a bit of a tribute to Nina Simone and mentions other artists such as Marvin Gaye, John Lennon, B.B. King and Curtis Mayfield. Hozier sings alongside another popular artist of her time Mavis Staples.
When asked about the song Hozier stated at Rolling Stone:
[It's] a suggestion that the battle for equality these artists championed remains an ongoing and necessary one. "The fights that took place 100 years ago or 200 years ago for whatever — civil rights or workers' right etc. — don't stop. There is no final victory. [Staples is] the most amazing person, just f**king unbelievable. [Her] energy is still absolutely there."
Hozier says about inspiration to write this song at his E-Mail newsletter:
"I'm thrilled to share the Nina Cried Power – EP with you all. The title track was written sometime last year, and my aim was to credit the actuality of hope, solidarity and love found in the human spirit at a time when their opposites were being given a mainstream platform 24/7. The song started as a tongue-in-cheek inquiry into modern popular language regarding political awareness and grew from there.
In many ways the song is a thank you note to the legacy of artists from the 20th Century whose work still inspires us, and whose well we draw from in times of uncertainty. Mavis Staples is one such artist. Getting to work with her on this song was a joy, and nothing short of a dream come true."
Hozier describes the song via Instagram:
Nina Cried Power is best described as a thank you note to the spirit of the work of artists and musicians who we can draw inspiration from the legacy of that legacy of people like Mavis Staples, Nina Simone, you have the Woody Guthries and Pete Seegers, Curtis Mayfields and Bob Dylans of the world and whose work embodied a certain spirit of protest in fairly uncertain times.
"Nina Cried Power" by Hozier was ranked as one of the best tracks of 2018 by former-President Barack Obama in his year-end list released on 28 December 2018.
