Sinéad O'Connor announces release of memoir, titled 'Rememberings'

SINÉAD O'CONNOR has penned a brand new memoir which will be available next summer.

The Irish singer, who turns 54 today, is set to release the memoir, titled 'Rememberings' - on June 1, according to her publisher.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books and Media announced on Monday that the book will be a "revelatory" account of O'Connor's life, detailing events from her childhood in Dublin through to the heights of her singing career, to her many controversies and struggles with her mental health.

"This is my story, as I remember it. I had great fun writing it over the past few years," the singer said in a statement.

The memoir features accounts of a number of rarely-told stories of O'Connor's life.

Deb Brody, vice president and publisher at HMH Books and Media added: "Many years in the making, Sinéad O'Connor's Rememberings is a remarkably candid, intensely personal account of a life both charmed and troubled."

Last month, O'Connor announce via social media that she was postponing her 2021 tour in order to enter a year-long rehabilitation programme for trauma and addiction, adding that she plans to resume the tour in 2022.

"Message for folks who have tickets for next year's shows," she wrote.

"Those shows are being postponed until 2022 so that I may go into a one-year trauma and addiction treatment program because I had a very traumatic six years and this year was the end of it but now recovery starts."

O'Connor also mentioned that upon completion of her treatment and recovery process, she would release a new album, titled 'No Veteran Dies Alone'.

"If I take this time to heal, I will be fit for a lifetime of touring. If I don't, I won't," she said.
