(about her switch to Rastafarian music in 2005)
Sinead: I was longing for hymns and religious songs that weren't so boring and that also didn't perpetuate this kind of false idea of God, which I felt Catholicism did at the time. So I was always interested in the idea of rescuing God from religion and the idea of singing as prayer. Rasta music is the only kind of music that I think really gets that across. You feel the spirit of God alive in that music.
