Sinéad O’Connor has announced that she is retiring from touring and music recording.
In a series of statements posted on Twitter last Friday, the Irish singer-songwriter also revealed that her next album will be her last.
“This is to announce my retirement from touring and from working in the record business. I’ve gotten older and I’m tired. So it’s time for me to hang up my nipple tassels, having truly given my all. NVDA in 2022 will be my last release. And there’ll be no more touring or promo,” O’Connor wrote.
In a clarification on her upcoming concert dates, O’Connor said, “All shows which were originally set for 2020, rescheduled to 2021 and then to 2022 are going to be pulled. Because this soldier woman has grown old quicker than covid.”
O’Connor, who has released 10 full-length studio albums over a forty year music journey, said it is “Time to put the feet up and make other dreams come true.”
Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra. O’Connor achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a new arrangement of Prince‘s song “Nothing Compares 2 U” that peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
