Sinead O'Connor Out of Retirement, into Reggae

Published: 2005-04-01
Having claimed her retirement from mainstream music was final after her short-lived tour with Massive Attack back in 2003, the Irish pop singer has been in Jamaica working on tracks for a new reggae album. However, O'Connor will not be making the entire record with original writing, she borrows from famed protest songs, "War" by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh's "Downpressor Man", and Burning Spear's "Marcus Garvey".

The album does not have a title as of yet, but is set for release this summer by the British branch of Sanctuary Records. Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare will co-produce the album as well as assist O'Connor as drummer (Dunbar) and as bass player (Shakespeare).
