Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor ( born 8 December 1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra. O’Connor achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a new arrangement of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U”.
Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures such as her ordination as a priest despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background and her strongly expressed views on organised religion, women’s rights, war, and child abuse.
In addition to her nine solo albums her work includes many singles, songs for films, collaborations with many other artists and appearances at charity fundraising concerts.
In January 2010, O’Connor performed a duet with R&B singer Mary J. Blige produced by former A Tribe Called Quest member Ali Shaheed Muhammad of O’Connor’s song “This Is To Mother You” (first recorded by O’Connor on her 1997 Gospel Oak EP). The proceeds of the song’s sales were donated to the organisation GEMS (Girls Educational and Mentoring Services).In 2012 the song “Lay Your Head Down”, written by Brian Byrne and Glenn Close for the soundtrack of the film Albert Nobbs and performed by O’Connor, was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.
O’Connor announced she was working on recording a new album, titled Home, to be released in the beginning of 2012.On 10 October 2011 O’Connor announced that the release date for the album, now titled How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?, had been set for 20 February 2012,with the first single being “The Wolf is Getting Married”. Having planned an extensive tour in support of How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?, O’Connor announced on her website in April 2012 that she was “very unwell” and had suffered a serious breakdown between December 2011 and March 2012.This resulted in the cancellation of the tour and all other musical activities for the rest of 2012, at least. O’Connor resumed touring in 2013, announcing The Crazy Baldhead Tour. The second single “4th and Vine” was released on 18 February 2013.
In February 2014, it was revealed that O’Connor had been recording a new album of original material, titled The Vishnu Room, consisting of romantic love songs.In early June 2014, it was announced that O’Connor’s new album had been retitled I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss, with an 11 August release date. The title derives from the Ban Bossy campaign that took place earlier the same year. The album’s first single is entitled “Take Me to Church”.
