The cover photograph of the album shows the two brick skew arch bridges adjacent to Gospel Oak railway station in north London. The station opened in 1860 as Kentish Town on the Hampstead Junction Railway from Camden Road to Old Oak Common Junction south of Willesden Junction. It was renamed Gospel Oak in 1867 when a new station more appropriately named Kentish Town was opened about a mile south on the same line.
Shuhada Sadaqat (born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor on 8 December 1966 and still known by her birth name, Sinéad O’Connor) is an Irish singer-songwriter. Her debut album, The Lion and the Cobra, released in 1987, charted internationally and her single “Nothing Compares 2 U”, released in 1990, was named the number one world single by the Billboard Music Awards.
Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures. These include her ordination as a priest, despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background, and strongly expressing views on organised religion, women’s rights, war, and child abuse. In addition to her ten solo albums, her work includes many singles, songs for films, collaborations with many other artists, and appearances at charity fundraising concerts.
In 2017, O’Connor changed her name to Magda Davitt. After converting to Islam in 2018, she changed it to Shuhada Sadaqat. However, she continues to record and perform under her birth name.
