Sinéad O'Connor Announces New Album

Sinead with John Grant, 'GMF', Sat. Night Show, March, 2014

Info: Sinéad O'Connor has announced the release of a new album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss, which will be available from 8th of August. One of the most spine-tingling live performances I ever seen was recently with Sinéad on stage with John Grant and Conor O'Brien from Villagers at Grant's concert in The Olympia back in March, and I can confirm she still has an incredible presence and amazing vocals. When I was a small lad I remember Sinéad bursting onto the scene with her cover of Prince's 'Nothing Compares 2 U' and that unforgettably painful video which went with it, she is undoubtedly one of our most divisive but gifted talents of the last few decades.

I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss is the follow up to Sinead’s critically acclaimed album How About I Be Me (And You Be You)? which was released in 2011.

I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss features twelve brand new songs which showcase the very best of Sinéad and what makes her so special, passionate and direct yet with an overarching fragile beauty Sinéad’s voice and lyrics are as powerful as they are tender.

Newly signed to Nettwerk Records, I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss is her 10th studio album in a career spanning over twenty five years. Sinéad is a rare thing in popular music, an absolutely unique artist.

From her first breakthrough hit, 1987’s ‘Mandinka’ and the multi-platinum global success of 1990’s I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got and its unforgettable number one ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’, right through to her brand new record Sinead has constantly surprised and delighted.
