Sinead O’Connor – ‘Take Me To Church’

O’Connor premiers a new tune with a familiar title.

New look, new tune, new vibe.

As this article that contains a stream of O’Connor’s new tune points out over on NPR, the singer’s catalogue is noted for its eclectic nature.

O’Connor constantly surprises. Her last record How About I Be Me (And You Be You) was one of her finest yet, and ‘Take Me To Church’ from her upcoming album I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss gets straight to the point.

“What have I been writing love songs for?” O’Connor announces emphatically with lawyered vocals. The track is assertive, uplifting, and loaded with intentions and self-affirmation.

One of my favourite recent O’Connor tracks was her cover of John Grant’s ‘Queen Of Denmark’. I just love when she jumps in all guns blazing, and why this track doesn’t possess the acerbic nature of QoD, there’s plenty of high-fiving promise here ahead of the new album.
