Move over, Roy Keane. Someone ever more controversial is planning to hit the bookshelves with their autobiography.

Sinead O’Connor is writing her memoirs for release in March 2016, her US publisher told the New York Times today.

O’Connor (47) promises that her as yet untitled book will be revealing. “I’ve never stopped expressing myself in my music, and now, with a book,” she said in a news release. She looks forward to “dishing the dirt” on everyone she has “ever slept with.”

Blue Rider Press, the Penguin Group imprint that will publish the book in the United States, said the book would “cover the singer’s turbulent upbringing in Ireland; her breakout as an artist with 1987’s The Lion and the Cobra and her nine subsequent albums; her controversial opinions and actions, as well as her personal and musical struggles and triumphs, through the present day.”

David Rosenthal, Blue Rider’s president and publisher, said, “Sinead has led a singular life – both personally and professionally.”

The book will be published in Ireland by Penguin Ireland.
