What you’ll find in The Ticket on your newstands, app and online tomorrow:

Sinead O’Connor: a full and frank discussion with OTR’s favourite Irish diva ahead of the release of her new album “Home”

Album Club: it’s an Electric Picnic special as Gavin Friday, Gemma Hayes and Mindfield’s Naoise Nunn take a peek in the archives and see how Sunday night headliner Pulp’s album “Different Class” fares in 2011.

The Skin I Live In: Elena Anaya talks about being the latest woman to come under the cinematic wing of Pedro Almodóvar. Plus panel on Almodóvar’s women.

One Day: jesus, it’s that fecking book. Jim Sturgess tells Tara Brady that he hadn’t heard anything about the novel before reading the film script and taking the leading man’s role in the film.

Plus reviews of new albums (including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alex Metric, Sloan, Tinariwen, Azari & III, Beirut, The War On Drug, Ry Cooder, Dervish and Placido Domingo), movies (The Skin I Live In, Conan the Barbarian, One Day, Final Destination 5, Treacle Jr), games (Rugby World Cup), apps (Film On Tv), listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times tomorrow in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. This day next week, we’ll be back in that shed in the middle of a field on Co Laois.
