Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor (born December 8, 1966) is a Grammy Award winning Irish singer and songwriter. She is Ireland's second biggest-selling female artist, after Enya.
Spring 2007 sees Sinead embracing life, her growing family and a new record. Recorded in Dublin and London, 'Theology' is a collection of beautiful songs which deal in universal themes from Sinead's personal point of view – love, spirituality, reconciliation, and knowledge mixed with her unique observations on life. The album features nine new Sinead O'Connor compositions, and two inspired covers – Curtis Mayfield's brooding 'We People Who Are Darker Than Blue', Andrew Lloyd Webber & Tim Rice's 'I Don't Know How To Love Him' (from 'Jesus Christ Superstar'); plus an adaptation of the traditional spiritual 'Rivers Of Babylon', with new lyrics added by Sinead.
'Theology' is a double album presenting the songs in both stripped down ('Dublin Sessions') and full band ('London Sessions') form. The acoustic disc was produced by noted trad guitarist Steve Cooney with Sinead, the electric disc was produced by London based producer RonTom. As the world at large deals with the uncertainties and tribulations of this still new Twenty – first century, 'Theology' seeks not to offer immediate answers or a universal panacea; but instead provokes timely and thoughtful questions from an artist who is still pushing herself and inviting her audience to come with her. Sinead says: "I wanted to create a place of peace in a time of strife and conflict. 'Theology' is my own personal response to the times we find ourselves living in".
