Sinead O'Connor I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss on LP + Download Card
Sinead O'Connor's I'm Not Bossy I'm The Boss is the singer's Nettwerk Music Group debut and tenth studio album in a career spanning over twenty-five rewarding years. The release is indicative of where Sinéad is currently in life, 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.
She adds, “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 No. 1 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 quite like Sinéad O’Connor and I'm Not Bossy I'm The Boss only reaffirms that.
