Inside search for Sinead O'Connor's lost songs as interest in iconic singer's music goes through the roof after death | The Sun

MANAGEMENT of the late Sinead O’Connor are trawling studios in Dublin hoping to track down lost recordings of the iconic singer.

Interest in Sinead’s music has gone through the roof since the worldwide outpouring of grief following her death last month.

Billboard reports that streaming of Sinead’s music went up a staggering 2,885 per cent in the US in the days after she passed away.

And despite her passing, there could be more new Sinead music to come.

The late singer was a prolific writer and was in and out of recording sessions.

They could finally be heard in a series of posthumous releases by Sinead, who was found dead in London last month.

An insider said: “Sinead released ten studio albums, but she was also a prolific writer and recording artist, who would drop into the studio whenever inspiration took her.

“Often these recordings went unfinished, on the understanding that Sinead would be back in at some point to complete them.

“Sadly, now that’s not going to happen. But, as Sinead worked in every studio in Dublin, there could be some amazing music we have yet to hear.”

The 56-year-old, was also known for her big name collaborations with superstars including The Edge, Peter Gabriel, Massive Attack, Ian Brown, Asian Dub Foundation and The Chieftains.

So prolific was Sinead working with other artists, that in 2005 her record company released album Collaborations, a compilation of 17 songs she recorded throughout her career with artists from Jah Wobble to Damien Dempsey.

The source said: “That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Sinead was a very generous, giving person who’d often offer to sing backing vocals on the songs of an unknown singer or band just because she loved their material. That’s a whole other avenue of unreleased material which could be tapped on.”

Musician Don Baker has plans to release two songs he penned which Sinead, Woe To The Holy Vow, and Cinderella.

Producer David Holmes is also mixing her final album, No Veteran Dies Alone, which she was recording with him in her final years. In 2018, Sinead told The Irish Sun: “David is lovely and the kindest person I think I’ve ever met.


“Literally would give you the skin off his back, never mind the shirt.”

Also in 2018, she compared her new album to Bruce Springsteen’s low-fi masterpiece, Nebraska. Sinead added: “I’m trying to write an album which would be described as a series of letters to young people.

“It seems to be a very Nebraska type record. Very intimate and personal. It will be very tender and beautiful.”

She revealed how renowned producer David were making the record by “sending each other emails”. Sinead said: “It’s being made by two very tender and beautiful people. He brings tenderness.”

Sinead’s management revealed at the time of her death she was “considering opportunities in relation to the memoir she released in 2021, titled Rememberings.
