Sinéad O'Connor has been in the game for over 25 years, dating back to 1987 with the release of her first album The Lion and the Cobra. In her newest music video for "Take Me To Church," she looks back on her career and life as a musician, reflecting on the mistakes she has made and allowing herself to let go of them. Directed by James Lees, the video opens with Sinéad alone in a dark room, singing about the type of songs she no longer wants to write. Images from her classic video "Nothing Compares 2 U" are projected onto her face, often times overlapping perfectly with her own facial features. When the first chorus kicks in, the video bursts into a purple and blue forest setting, and Sinéad is seen with a long wig, performing energetically in front of a full band. By the time the second chorus kicks in, Sinéad has thrown off her wig and the redemption and peace she eludes to in the lyrics is fully illustrated by the images on the screen.

”Take Me To Church” was produced by Harvey Ascott for Doomsday Entertainment and can be found on the upcoming album I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss.
