Nettwerk Music Group is thrilled to announce the signing of Sinéad O’Connor to its worldwide label roster. An album of brand new recordings The Vishnu Room will be released on August 12.
Indicative of where Sinéad is in life, the album is passionate and direct, yet with an overarching fragility; her voice and lyrics are as passionate as they are tender. “Having published Sinead as a songwriter for the last 5 years, it’s great to now broaden that relationship to the Nettwerk label too. The new recordings are incredible and we’re all very excited to be working on this worldwide release for later this year,” says Blair McDonald, MD of Nettwerk Music Group UK.
From her breakthrough hit, 1987’s Mandinka, to the multi-platinum international success of 1990’s I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got with its number one version of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” from her fearless genre-crossing forays into Irish folk, and roots reggae to her collaborations with artists as diverse as Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack and The Chieftains, O’Connor has trodden a unique path to become the most iconic female artist of the past 30 years.
