Last may, Sinéad O'Connor announced that she retired from music business with a DVD and some collaborations. But it was not completely true. The last present that the Dubliner singer has offered to her audience is called "She Who Dwells in the Secret Place of the Most High Shall Abide Under the Shadow of the Almighty" and it is a double CD. One disc includes covers, rare tracks, demo and new songs, and the other one, live songs.
"Ain't it a shame", by B'52; the classic Abba's song, "Chiquitita" or "Do Right Woman" by Aretha Franklin are some of the covers that the buyer of this album will appreciate. Sinéad O'Connor offers a new vision of these songs with her special and sweet voice, but also with the work of producers like Brian Eno or Adrian Sherwood.
The second disc is a review of Sinéad's career, and there are hits like Nothing compares 2 U, Thank You For Hearing Me, and also songs from her last CD, "Sean-Nos Nua". The setlist of this live CD is the same than her DVD "Goodnight, Thank You, You've Been a Lovely Audience," which was recorded in October 2002, in Dublin.
"She Who Dwells" is a gift that will show in the near future what a lot of people know now: Sinéad is a talented singer that has clearly said a lot of things.
