Sinead rose to fame in the 80s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra.

She just released her latest album How About I Be Me (And You Be You), which was met with praise from critics. She has had a very public struggle with her mental health and was forced to pull out of her tour to promote the album earlier this year.
