Hozier's new single 'Movement' features acclaimed ballet dancer Sergei Polunin. If you remember, Polunin was previously in a video set to Hozier's breakthrough song 'Take Me To Church'.
Speaking on the new collaboration, Hozier said "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 become of your own work is for it to form part of another artist’s vision or execution. That performance itself gave rise to ideas for this song, so I was incredibly proud to work with Sergei on this video.
"He 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."
Hozier is currently on a tour across North America. He'll soon return home to play a series of sold out gigs, including three dates in the Olympia in December. ‘Movement’ has already proved a standout track at his North American shows.
Polunin has also commented about his involvement in the video. He said "When I found out that Hozier wanted me to be in his new music video for the song ‘Movement’, I was over the moon with happiness. "He did it again", I thought when I heard the song - he created a masterpiece. His music inspired and moved me before and, he did it again with this song ‘Movement’."
