Sinead O’Connor grabbed headlines last year for writing Miley Cyrus a series of very long and complicated open letters. Hopefully, the veteran singer/songwriter will be making a whole more in 2014 — this time, thanks to brilliant comeback single “Take Me To Church” and promising new LP I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss (due August 12 on Nettwerk Records).

Produced by ex-husband and The Lion And The Cobra collaborator John Reynolds, “Take Me To Church” finds Sinead coming to terms with her past and embracing the here and now. (It’s also her catchiest pop single in many, many years). The video is an unexpectedly joyous walk down memory lane with the 47-year-old performing under a projection of her iconic “Nothing Compares 2 U” visual before rocking out with her band. Also, the scene where she rips off her wig is the best thing I’ve seen today. Watch up top.
