Hozier Covers Led Zeppelin for Album to Benefit Irish Cancer Society

ABC/Fred Lee Hozier has lent his voice to a new charity album to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society. The Irish singer-songwriter takes on the Led Zeppelin classic "Whole Lotta Love" for the compilation disc, which is called Whole Lotta Live.

On his version of "Whole Lotta Love," Hozier slows things down and uses a string section to conjure Jimmy Page's famous guitar riff. Instead of trying to imitate Robert Plant's signature wail, the "Take Me to Church" singer opts for a much lower register.

Whole Lotta Live is a collection of live sessions recorded at the Irish radio station Today FM, and is dedicated to the memory of Irish DJ Tony Fenton who died earlier this year after a five-year cancer battle. In addition to Hozier's cover of "Whole Lotta Love," the compilation includes contributions from The National and Mark Lanegan.

Whole Lotta Live comes out November 27. All of the proceeds will go to the Irish Cancer Society via Today FM's Shave or Dye campaign.
