Sinead O'Connor - I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss [LP] (download)
Having recently signed to Nettwerk Music Group, Sin?ad O'Connor prepares to release her 10th studio
album in a career spanning over twenty-five years. The newly titled album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss
will be released via Nettwerk Records.
Indicative of where Sin?ad is in life the album is passionate and direct, yet with an overarching fragility; her
voice is as powerful as it is tender.
The album's title I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss was inspired by Lean In's Ban Bossy campaign from earlier
in the year. ''Originally I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase
'I'm not bossy, I'm the boss' and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the
album since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl [Sandberg]'s campaign is a terribly
important one,'' explained O'Connor. ''At the stage I became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign it was too late
to change the album title because the sleeve was already in print. But last week, when the record company
received the promo shots, which included the cover shot you now see, they asked could they change the
planned cover to the current one, and that allowed me the opportunity of changing the title. Very happy girl.''
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 one of the
most iconic female artist of the past three decades. There is no one like Sin?ad O'Connor.
