Music from the British Isles: Sinéad O’Connor and Paul Young to perform in Reykjavík this October.
Iceland’s annual mega music event, Iceland Airwaves (October 12-16), this year includes Sinéad O’Connor in its line-up. O’Connor’s debut album came out in 1987, three years before the singer/songwriter shot to world fame with her 1990 hit ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ (music and lyrics by Prince), and she has been releasing a new album every few years since then. The latest, Home, came out this summer.
The British Isles are also lending Iceland pop and soul artist Paul Young for a concert at Harpa on October 4. Young is best known for hits such as ‘Every Time You Go Away’ and ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat (That’s My Home)’. The singer’s visit to Iceland comes ahead of the his tour to Germany and Austria later in October.
