The Irish singer said on social media that she had been between “two thoughts” about retiring. But she confirmed that she will now begin a new career as a writer.
On Sunday I begin my new life as a writer, having been in two minds about retiring from the music business. Below is my retirement announcement. My last album, No Veteran Dies Alone will be released in April 2022. There will be no promo.

“This is to announce that, having been in doubt about the possibility of retiring, I have decided, after consulting with my medical team and following their advice, to go ahead and retire so that I can focus on my new career as a writer,” he wrote Sinead O’Connor.
He went on to explain that he had fought “the intellectually Lilliputian far right” in Ireland, saying that he owed his life to “foreign residents in this country. [Irlanda]”.
In his attack on far-right activists in Ireland, including Gemma O’Doherty, He added: “Their online activities are degrading and damaging to the people of Ireland. And to all foreign residents and visitors. And what is good for the goose is certainly good for the goose.”
Thank you to your fans
Confirming his plans to leave social media, O’Connor concluded: “I will close my twitter page in the next few days to enjoy being a private citizen. And enjoy my new life as a writer. I sincerely thank my fans for the love they have shown me over the years, as well as my co-workers. We have had a great adventure, now is the time for the next one. “
His most comprehensive announcement comes after he backtracked on his intention to retire earlier this month. Just a few days after an initial announcement.
O’Connor said that his initial announcement was a “knee-jerk reaction” to some triggering interviews with British and Canadian broadcasters, which he referred to as “pigs with lipstick.”
His latest album No Veteran Dies Alone will arrive in 2022.
