Unique Irish singer-songwriter and performer Sinéad O’Connor releases her brand new studio album ‘How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?’ through One Little Indian on March 5th 2012. The album is preceded by the single ‘The Wolf Is Getting Married’ on February 27th.
Her ninth studio album, and the latest release in a career spanning 25 years and millions of record sales worldwide, ‘How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?’ is as showstopping a performance as her silver jubilee deserves, and ranks as one of her best and most confident pieces of work so far.
Produced by long-term collaborator John Reynolds, its ten tracks play like an encyclopaedic definition of O’Connor’s oeuvre: songs about love and loss, hope and regret, pain and redemption, anger and justice. This is an album of consistently moving, exciting, brilliant and beautiful songs built around Sinéad’s voice at its very best – raw and passionate.
The album contains original tracks all self/co-written bar one cover of John Grant’s ‘Queen of Denmark’.
Sinéad has been playing new songs from the album at a series of critically acclaimed live shows this year at the Manchester International Festival, Iceland Airwaves and, most recently, at Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions - a performance that the Evening Standard called ‘extraordinary’ and awarded a five stars review.
Sinéad will be touring her new album internationally in 2012, UK dates as follows:
