Prince Nothing Compares'
Nothing Compares 2 UNothing Compares 2 U contains the original version of the iconic song. This previously unreleased version was recorded in 1984, six years before 1990's classic reimagining by SinÉad O'Connor and before Prince started performing the song live. The track was recorded at the Flying Cloud Drive 'Warehouse' in Eden Prairie by Prince's long-time engineer Susan Rogers, and originally composed, arranged and performed in its entirety by Prince, aside from the backing vocals by Susannah Melvoin and Paul St. Paul Peterson. Also featured on the original track is saxophone work by Eric Leeds.1. Nothing Compares 2 U (Edit)

I'm Not Bossy, I'm The BossHaving recently signed to Nettwerk Music Group, SinÉad 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 SinÉad 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 SinÉad O'Connor.1. How About I Be Me

I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got (Out Of Stock)I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got became SinÉad O'Connor's popular breakthrough on the strength of the stunning Prince cover Nothing Compares 2 U, which topped the pop charts for a month. But even its remarkable intimacy wasn't adequate preparation for the harrowing confessionals that composed the majority of the album. Informed by her stormy relationship with drummer John Reynolds, who fathered O'Connor's first child before the couple broke up, I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got lays the singer's psyche startlingly and sometimes uncomfortably bare. The songs mostly address relationships with parents, children, and (especially) lovers, through which O'Connor weaves a stubborn refusal to be defined by anyone but herself. In fact, the album is almost too personal and cathartic to draw the listener in close, since O'Connor projects such turmoil and offers such specific detail. Her confrontational openness makes it easy to overlook O'Connor's musical versatility. Granted, not all of the music is as brilliantly audacious as I Am Stretched on Your Grave, which marries a Frank O'Connor poem to eerie Celtic melodies and a James Brown Funky Drummer sample. But the album plays like a tour de force in its demonstration of everything O'Connor can do: dramatic orchestral ballads, intimate confessionals, catchy pop/rock, driving guitar rock, and protest folk, not to mention the nearly six-minute a cappella title track. What's consistent throughout is the frighteningly strong emotion O'Connor brings to bear on the material, while remaining sensitive to each piece's individual demands. Aside from being a brilliant album in its own right, I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got foreshadowed the rise of deeply introspective female singer/songwriters like Tori Amos and Sarah McLachlan, who were more traditionally feminine and connected with a wider audience. Which takes nothing away from anyone; if anything, it's evidence that, when on top of her game, O'Connor was a singular talent.
