Published Jun 02, 2014A few weeks ago, headline-grabbing Irish singer Sinéad O'Connor signed Nettwerk for an album that was going to be called The Vishnu Room. Now, the album has rebranded with a much much more empowering title: I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss.
In a post on her website, O'Connor explained that the name is taken from Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign, which aims to encourage young girls to become leaders by discouraging use of the word "bossy." Watch a video for the campaign below. (In the clip, Beyoncé uses the phrase "I'm not bossy, I'm the boss.")
O'Connor apparently wanted to change the title when she first became away of Ban Bossy, but by that point, the sleeves were already in print. Her label decided to overhaul the album cover, however, and this allowed her to change the title.
According to a press release, "I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss features 12 brand new songs which showcase the very best of Sinéad and what makes her so special, passionate and direct yet with an overarching fragile beauty. Sinéad's voice and lyrics are as powerful as they are tender."
The album's first single is called "Take Me to Church."
Although the title is different, the album is still due out on August 12.
