As a young woman, Sinéad O’Connor was running towards a career in music as much as she was running away. At 15, she left school for Dublin’s music scene, putting in the rear-view mirror a tortured childhood that had included abuse at the hands of her mother. Not trusting a fiery teenage musician to appropriately plan her first album, Ensign paired her with experienced producer Mick Glossop. When the two clashed over different visions for the record, months of studio time was wasted. The record was named The Lion and the Cobra after a passage in the 91st Psalm – spoken by fellow singer Enya in Gaelic on Never Get Old. Meanwhile, O’Connor explored a different sort of injustice and fear in Mandinka, which would become the record’s big hit, going Top 40 in many countries around the world, including No. 6 in her native Ireland.
