Sinead O’Connor - Audio Stream - Video Interviews
Sinead O’Connor’s new CD Throw Down Your Arms will be in stores October 4th , Audio streams for THREE songs, Ecard, EPK, and interviews Please listen to the streams below – this is more than just a Reggae album done by Sinead O’Connor - it is her best and most compelling work to date.

Thirteen years after she stepped back from the brink of superstardom, Sinead has finally made the record towards which she has been building her whole career. In April of this year, she traveled alone to Kingston, Jamaica to record her brand new record, Throw Down Your Arms, at the world famous Tuff Gong and Anchor Studios. It’s a collection of roots songs, which have inspired Sinead in her life and work for the past fifteen years. The legendary reggae rhythm section of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare produced the album and many of the musicians who played on the original record were enlisted to give added authenticity to the sound.


The title comes from one of the tracks on the record, originally written and performed by Studio One legend Winston Rodney, a.k.a Burning Spear, who also contributes four other cuts: Jah Nuh Dead, Marcus Garvey, Door Peep and He Prayed. Spear’s recurrent themes - the living God on earth, the role of Pan Africanist Marcus Mosiah Garvey and personal and social redemption - were a huge influence on Sinead and echoes of his earthy delivery can be heard in her own vocal style. But these tracks are tributes, not imitations. Just as the Irish songs on Sean Nos Nua were subtly jamaicanized so Sinead has added in her own Irish instrumentation to certain tracks on this record. While staying true to the composer’s vision Sinead has also stamped each of the tracks with that distinctively soulful roar which has electrified her fans all over the world for nearly two decades. As Robbie observed to nobody in particular after hearing Sinead lay down a particularly goose-bump inducing vocal; “forget the originals baby, these ARE the originals.”

Sinead will put out Throw Down Your Arms this October on her own label, That’s why there’s Chocolate and Vanilla (a favorite expression of her deceased manager Steve Fargnoli). As she pulls together the threads from over a decade of work Sinead will this autumn, for the first time in eight years, tour North America. ‘The shows are the whole point’, she told me. ‘I can’t wait to be onstage with Sly and Robbie. I want to pass on the teachings of the Rastafarai movement, sing the songs and have fun. It will be better than mass.”
