Sinead O'Connor has changed the name of her new album to 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss'. The title reflects the Ban Bossy campaign, which Sinead is a supporter of

Sinead O'Connor's new album will be called 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss'.

The 'Nothing Compares 2 U' hitmaker has undergone a dramatic transformation for the cover of her new record, donning a short black wig and black leather dress, and has renamed the album just two months before its release.

The 47-year-old star has been inspired by the recent Ban Bossy campaign, which has been backed by the likes of Beyonce and calls for people to stop using the word 'bossy' to describe a successful female.

Sinead explained the title change on her official website, writing: "Just a note to explain the title of my forthcoming album IS taken from Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign.

"Originally I had a different title, 'The Vishnu Room', but a few months back when I saw the phrase 'I'm not bossy, I'm the boss' and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl's campaign is a terribly important one."

Sinead was unable to change her record's title initially, but her record label were soon convinced when they decided to change the cover art to reflect her striking new image.

The star added: "Very happy girl."
