- Hozier Premieres New song “Movement” on Apple Beats 1
- Irish singer-songwriter Hozier unveiled a new song “Movement” with accompanying music video on Zane Lowe's Beatas 1 Radio show.
The song is the first single from his upcoming sophomore album, which is expected to be released early 2019.
It was written by Hozier and produced by Markus Dravs and Hozier.
He first performed the song at a rehearsal show in Dublin, Ireland on September 4, 2018.
The video features Ukrainian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin, directed by directed by Us (Chris Barrett and Luke Taylor).
Hozier said of the song in a statement:
“I was first confronted by Sergei’s talent when I saw a performance of his set to my music in collaboration with David LaChapelle. I believe one of the greatest things to come of your own work is for it to form part of another artist’s vision or execution. That performance itself gave rise to ideas in the song ‘Movement,’ so I was incredibly proud to work with Sergei on this video. Sergei Polunin is a once in a generation talent. He’s a man of incredible skill and artistry and shows a dedication to his art form that I find inspiring. I’m thrilled to share this with everyone.”
Sergei Polunin said, "I was over the moon with happiness. When I first heard the song, I thought – he did it again, he created a masterpiece. His music inspired and moved me before, and he did it again with ‘Movement.’”
