HOZIER LENDS HIS VOICE

New Music Video by Columbia Singer/Songwriter Shines a Light on the Horror of Domestic Violence

On Valentine's Day, Columbia's Hozier, a revered lyricist, released the official music video for "Cherry Wine"—the delicate, yet emotive live track on his breakout, self-titled album.

Starring Oscar-nominated actress Saorise Ronan, the clip shines a light on the disturbingly common issue of domestic violence, and makes a point that instances of such aren't always easy to spot just by looking at the surface of a romantic relationship. Watch it below.

Hozier, Columbia, his U.K. label Island and Sony/ATV Publishing have announced that they are donating their respective proceeds from downloads of the single to an array of domestic abuse charity organizations worldwide.
