As the world mourns the sudden passing of Sinéad O’Connor, fans have noted how the 'Nothing Compares 2 U' singer had spoken about making new music in one her final videos.

In the heartbreaking clip, the Irish singer reveals that she had been intending to ‘more tunes’ just two weeks before her tragic death.

The 56-year-old also reflects on the loss of her seventeen-year-old son Shane saying that it wasn’t ‘good for the soul’.

At the time of her death, the mum-of-four had been working on a new album – which would have been her 11th release.

In her last public Facebook post, O’Connor confirmed this and revealed that she hoped the new music would be ready early next year.

She also told fans on social media that she was contemplating a world tour, set to begin in Australia and New Zealand at the end of 2024.

Tragically, the last video showed the Irish star in her Lambeth home with a black guitar affixed to her wall – hinting at the yet unreleased music.

She excitedly told fans: “There is my new Martin Johnny f**king Cash guitar which I’m going to write some new tunes on.”

However, they would never get to hear the star’s planned album as O’Connor was found unresponsive in her home just two weeks later.

It’s unclear why the 56-year-old suddenly passed, but she admitted that she’d been struggled with her mental health following the loss of her son.

“You know the way your kid unfortunately passing away - it isn't good for one's body, or soul to be fair,” she confessed, quickly adding: “But anyway look let's not dwell on that.”

Since her untimely death, tributes have been pouring for the singer.

Among those offering their condolences was the Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar - who wrote: "Really sorry to hear of the passing of Sinéad O’Connor.

"Her music was loved around the world and her talent was unmatched and beyond compare. Condolences to her family, her friends and all who loved her music."

His tweet ended with a Gaelic phrase, 'Ar dheis Dé go Raibh a hAnam', which translates as rest in peace.

Outlander star Bear McCreary also offer his own tribute, having written songs with O’Connor recently.

He tweeted: “I am gutted by the loss of Sinéad O'Connor.

“She was the warrior poet I expected her to be - wise and visionary, but also hilarious. She and I laughed a lot.

“We were writing new songs together, which will now never be complete.

The singer is survived by three of her children.
