On Discovering “Nothing Compares 2 U”

When asked about choosing to cover “Nothing Compares 2 U,” 23-year-old O’Connor explained: “I got to know it about a year and a half ago. I mean I don’t know what I liked about I just liked it. It’s just it’s a brilliant song. It’s incredibly moving.” She first heard Prince’s song a couple years prior and was immediately struck by its beauty and emotion.

On Her Upcoming Album

Regarding her forthcoming album, O’Connor shared: “I think it’s a bit more, it’s not as sort of angst…It’s much more calm I suppose, it’s far more composed if you like and relaxed than the last one was.” She conveyed a musical maturation from her debut, with less anger and more wisdom.

On Reacting to Grammy Recognition

When asked about being nominated for a Grammy, O’Connor admitted: “I was very surprised actually. I didn’t really it wasn’t something that I had thought about or that was even a possibility.” She expressed genuine shock and delight at earning the early career milestone.
