Ireland’s finest singer Sinead O’Connor is about to release her long awaited ninth studio album this Monday, and what a better way than have a look first at the leading single ‘The Wolf is Getting Married’ before the album review later on this week.
Despite all the gossip about her wedding and other private matters it’s been remarkably quiet arround the Irish superstar who rose to fame in the 8oies. But she is back, and are we glad she is giving it another go to teach them youngsters how to make some good music.
The track, which has been chosen to preceed the new album ‘How About I Be Me (And You Be You)’, ‘The Wolf is Getting Married’ combines the raw vocals of Sinead with a solid pop rock sound. The great asset of Sinead O’Connor’s repertoire is not only her vocals but her lyrics, which fit her so well. Her songs are heavily influenced by issues in the world and her personal life and ‘The Wolf is Getting Married’ is no exception. It’s been a very long time since we heard Sinead tracks, apart from Nothing Compares 2 You, on the radio so we are crossing our fingers for lots and lots of radio airplay and hope it all builds up to one heck of a comeback for the inspiring artist.
She blew our socks off with her performance of the song on the Graham Norton Show last week which you can watch here, but now the official video for the song is out as well. And video-wise it’s again very creatively done, without having to exaggerate. Something some of the popstars we know these days could learn from, no offence to them.
”The Wolf is Getting Married” is out now on i-Tunes. The new album ”How About I Be Me (And You Be You)” sees its international release on March 5.
