Sinead O’Connor has announced her retirement from her music career in a series of tweets on Friday night.
“This is to announce my retirement from touring and from working in the record business. I’ve gotten older and I’m tired. So it’s time for me to hang up my nipple tassels, having truly given my all. NVDA in 2022 will be my last release. And there’ll be no more touring or promo,” O’Connor wrote, referencing her upcoming album, No Veteran Dies Alone. She continued, “It’s not sad news. It’s staggeringly beautiful news. A wise warrior knows when he or she should retreat.” She also added, “It’s been a forty year journey. Time to put the feet up and make other dreams come true.”
