Sinead O’Connor has changed her recording artist alias to Magda Davitt, and has released her first single under the new name, which she adopted last year.

Milestones opens with a cluster of sustained strings, before we are greeted by Davitt’s husky yet powerful vocals that haunt the listener right through to the ghostly closing bars.

Available exclusively through The Irish Sun, Davitt has firmly labelled the track a “first demo for fans”. It is a collaboration with the Northern Irish producer David Holmes, and is the first cut from an upcoming EP.

‘No Mud No Lotus’ does not yet have a release date, although Davitt has specified it will not be out before October 2019. Fans still have a little while to wait.

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.

But then we also have bands like Puppy, who are able to cast that whole argument in the comic light it often deserves.
