ABC/Fred LeeAfter years of waiting, Hozier fans finally got some good news: The Irish singer is dropping a new EP next week.

On Instagram, Hozier posted a note that read, “Thrilled to announce my new EP Nina Cried Power will be released on September 6.  Can’t wait to share these songs with you. Many thanks and much love.”

Nina Cried Power is Hozier’s first collection of new songs since his acclaimed 2014 self-titled debut, which produced the global hit “Take Me to Church.” In 2016, he released a single called “Better Love,” from the soundtrack of the movie The Legend of Tarzan.

Hozier will launch a North American tour on September 15 in Ottawa, Ontario, which will include stops at the  Pilgrimage Festival in Tennessee on September 22 and the Austin City Limits Festival the weekends of October 5 and October 12. The tour wraps up October 22 in Vancouver.

The singer, born Andrew Hozier Byrne, will warm up for the tour with three “live rehearsal shows” in Dublin, Ireland on September 3, 5 and 7th, with all proceeds going to three different charities. He’ll also do a London show on September 11 to benefit the charity War Child UK.
