Sinéad O’Connor – The Artist

Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor (1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra. O’Connor achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a new arrangement of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures. These include her ordination as a priest, despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background, and strongly expressing views on organised religion, women’s rights, war, and child abuse. In addition to her ten solo albums, her work includes many singles, songs for films, collaborations with many other artists, and appearances at charity fundraising concerts.

Nothing Compares 2 U – The Song

‘Nothing Compares 2 U  is a song  originally written and composed by Prince for his side project, The Family; the song was featured on their eponymous album. It was later made famous by Sinéad O’Connor, whose cover was released as the second single from her second studio album, I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got. This version, which O’Connor co-produced with Nellee Hooper, became a worldwide hit in 1990 and its music video received heavy rotation on MTV. Its lyrics explore feelings of longing from the point of view of an abandoned lover.

The Meerkat – The Shape

This tongue-in-cheek piece has used the record has been cut into the silhouette of two Meerkats. The shape was inspired by the songs title and the wide popularity of Meerkats that are heavily featured by Compare the Meerkat, a comparison website. Compare the Meerkat is an advertising campaign on British commercial television for comparethemarket.com, a price comparison website, part of BGL Group. The adverts feature Aleksandr Orlov, a CGI anthropomorphic gay Russian meerkat and his family, lover and friends.
