Sinead O’Connor, 'How About I Be Me (and You Be You)?'
In the title query of the Irish singer-songwriter’s latest album, out today, the “I’’ in question could be a variety of different people. Is it the fire-breathing, indignant wailer of her galvanizing 1987 debut “The Lion and the Cobra’’? The reverent reggae disciple of 2005’s “Throw Down Your Arms’’? The sultry torch singer of 1992’s “Am I Not Your Girl?’’ It is all those things and more. O’Connor is having another turbulent go of it at the moment as a public figure but as a musician “How About’’ is a stunning rebirth of engagement.
