Cherry Wine Single to Benefit Domestic Abuse Charities

Hozier will release Cherry Wine as a single and video on Valentine’s Day. The video is directed by Emmy-winning Irish director Dearbhla Walsh and stars Oscar and Golden Globe nominated Saoirse Ronan and Vikings star Moe Dunford.

The single is in support of Hozier’s #FaceUpToDomesticViolence campaign. In a statement released today, Hozier said:

Domestic violence is an ongoing issue in our society, the statistics of which are shocking and the effects of which damage whole families, communities and span generations. With the song Cherry Wine, I tried to get across the difficulty of coming to terms with and facing up to domestic violence and the dynamic of an abusive relationship. I’m honored to be joined by Saoirse Ronan, Dearbhla Walsh and Moe Dunford in spreading awareness on this issue.
