Sinead announces return to music

Sinead O'Connor has announced that she is returning to her music career.

In an exclusive interview with Hot Press published today, O'Connor, who retired two years ago, said that she is signing a management and record deal with Sanctuary Records.

Hot Press says that O'Connor is working on three records concurrently, though no decision has been made on the projects' sequencing.

"I want to at least aim my records at a more spiritualised market," O'Connor told Hot Press. "Not religious records strictly speaking, but in the spirit of roots/gospel/chant."
