Recorded live at RTÉ 2FM Studio 8, another blistering track from Dublin's finest grime duo and Diffusion Lab rising star Day_S.
'Lord Hear Us' is a remix of an early track from MXM's album and was previously performed as part of their shows at Barbican Centre and the National Concert Hall. The chorus - sung by Day_S - and the piano riff comes from The Streets' 2004 Original Pirate Material single 'Has It Come To This'.
Commenting on the song on Twitter, Mango wrote: "I wrote the lyrics to this song after going to a funeral. I say there listening to the prayers of the faithful and the people I thought needed our prayers are never mentioned. I wrote this for them.
"'This is for everyone who doesn’t get prayed for. Those on the fringes. Those that need our help. For the people.
Lord Hear them.
This is reality music. By us, for you.
