Sinead O’Connor Finally Leaves The Past Behind In Euphoric “Take Me To Church” Video: Watch

Back And Better Than Ever
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.

Are you ready for Sinead’s comeback? Let us know in the comments below.

    I can’t wait for the album on the 12th! I love the video and this song too!

    Though I completely understand the statement she behind this comeback single with “Church” in it….I still can’t seem to understand her actions many years ago!! She has lost all respect from Christians and many other faiths as well. Nice pop single but this will not bring her back. Sorry!!

      You are remembering the 19 year old kid. I’m sure as hell glad I didn’t have cameras following me around when I was 19 and recording my brilliant observations. 19 year olds know all the answers. Now I just hope I’m asking the right questions.

      Couldn’t disagree more. She has a raw honesty that refutes spoon fed indoctrination. Aggressively, sometimes, admittedly. I too am a Christian. Do you not think she is? Bring it on, Sinead.

  • Doodler

    Yes it will dude :) Sinead rocks…

  • Dann Oickle

    She is and always will be one of the greatest voices in rock history…and I haven’t been this excited to buy an album in years. As a music producer and radio host, I’ve rarely had the pleasure to play a song that I’d literally put on twice in one show – hell, repeat uninterrupted…rip off those shackles Sinéad let the banshee wail! We’ve been waiting for this!
