    Iconic Irish singer-songwriter and performer Sinéad O'Connor, in the news lately due to her wedding, is set to release her brand new studio album How About I Be Me (and You Be You)? through One Little Indian (MRI in the USA) on Feb. 21.

    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 show-stopping 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 10 tracks play like an encyclopedic 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 Sinead's voice at its very best – raw and passionate.

    The album contains original tracks all self/co-written except one cover of John Grant's "Queen of Denmark." Go here for "4th and Vine" and "Take Off Your Shoes." Check them both out; we dug both. They sound like vintage Sinead O'Connor, with that delicate + beautiful voice.
