Personalities | Sinéad O’Connor | Nineties | Rock

(Singer-songwriter, b. 1966)

A woman apt to speak her mind and sing her heart out, O’Connor’s strong sense of personal feminism has informed all of her work. Her cover version of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ propelled her second album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got (1990) into the international waters of multi-platinum success. More hit singles like ‘Haunted’ – with Shane MacGowan – followed, as did controversy, but although in self-imposed exile fans eagerly await her return.
