Sinéad O'Connor Shares Official Music Video For "8 Good Reasons"

 "Sinéad's nearly 30-year career forms a portrait of an artist in conflict; a brilliant singer who remains musically, politically and personally uncompromising after forays into folk, pop, standards, reggae and points beyond. By definition, her catalog is erratic, but it's consistently bold and surprising...Its first single, "Take Me to Church," looks back on a lifetime of battles and broken loves, only to find pathways to peace, redemption, forgiveness and wonder…the song provides a stirring and frequently beautiful glimpse into the mind of a singer who searches constantly for improvements in herself." - NPR

Out today, Sinéad O'Connor shares the official music video for "8 Good Reasons" from her 10th studio album I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss (available HERE via Nettwerk Records).

Shot on a bus in Dublin, the official music video for “8 Good Reasons” shows Sinéad at her most direct and powerful, but also demonstrates the power of redemption. "8 Good Reasons" is an emotive and beautiful song that represents the very best of her songwriting, her ever-powerful vocal set to a an uplifting chorus produced by longterm collaborator John Reynolds.

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.

Tour Dates:

Tuesday, October 28 – New York, NY @ City Winery

“Her most upbeat (and best) album in years” – Billboard Magazine

"While O’Connor never really went anywhere, this self-assured and confident release feels like a comeback. It has elements of what made her so strong and startling back on her still dynamic 1987 debut but tempered and matured with the wisdom of a quarter century of experience."
American Songwriter

“Be it personal or observational, O’Connor is definitely in charge on “Bossy.” – Boston Globe
