Nothing Compares, a documentary about Sinead O’Connor, will still air on Saturday to provide viewers the opportunity to “hear her tell her side of the story”, according to the filmmaker via Sky News. Belfast-born director Kathryn Ferguson confirmed the original plan to release the programme on Sky Documentaries and Now from 29 July will proceed despite the recent passing of the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter at the age of 56.
The decision to move forward with the broadcast was made after careful consideration following the musician’s death.
The 2022 documentary delves into the late Irish star’s journey to international stardom, particularly after releasing her rendition of Nothing Compares 2 U, and the controversies she faced due to her outspoken protests.
“We had been scheduled to release Nothing Compares today on Sky / Now for a very long time and after lots of thought we are going to go ahead with that plan,” Ferguson tweeted on Saturday.
“The reaction to the film and love for Sinead has been palpable and we feel screening it this weekend is the right thing to do, so that people can see her in all her glory and hear her tell her side of the story.”
She added: “An option she was rarely granted by some facets of the media who spent so much of their time being reductive of all she had to say.
After signing with Ensign Records she released her first album The Lion And The Cobra in 1987. Her second album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got, which came out in 1990, sold more than seven million copies and included her breakthrough hit Nothing Compares 2 U.
She wrote other hits including You Made Me The Thief Of Your Heart – for the soundtrack of Daniel Day-Lewis film In the Name of the Father – Drink Before The War and This Is The Day.
She released 10 studio albums in her career, and Nothing Compares 2 U was named the number one world single in 1990 by the Billboard Music Awards. Nothing Compares 2 U received three Grammy nominations and Rolling Stone named her Artist of the Year in 1991.
