Sinead back with ex husband to produce her latest album

THEIR marriage may have broken up but Sinead O'Connor and ex-husband John Reynolds are enjoying a successful working relationship these days.

The former couple have apparently found the winning formula for making music and have teamed up to produce the mother-of-four's next album -- to be released later this year.

John told this newspaper that they have already recorded 17 tracks and that fans are going to be thoroughly impressed.

"We're going to be performing some of the new stuff at the Westport Food and Music Festival over the summer -- she sounds amazing on the album, it's the usual Snead sound and incredible," he said.

Bray-based Sinead accompanied John to the premiere of Stalker in Dublin last night.

Sinead's ex hubby helped Dublin singer Damien Dempsey compose the music for the thriller, which tells the story of a homeless man who wanders around Dublin, where he meets and befriends a bullied teenager named Tommy (Barry Keoghan).

A victim of abuse himself, Oliver sees Tommy's innocence and desperately wants to preserve it, to the point that he becomes increasingly involved in the young boy's life.

Dressed in a black lace dress, Sinead was keeping a low profile, but happily posed for photos with fans.

The 47-year-old took to Twitter this week to reveal she underwent tests to examine several lumps on her breasts.

Sinead, who had a mammogram and biopsies at a Dublin hospital, told the Herald that she has yet to find out the results of the tests, but is hopeful the growths are just cysts.

"I haven't heard anything about it, I'm not here to talk about that, I'm just supporting John and the film," she said.

Stalker sees actors Peter Coonan and Barry Keoghan team up with director Mark O'Connor for the third time.

They previously worked with Mark on King of the Travellers and Between The Canals.

"He's such an amazing guy to work with, we did this shoot in 12 days and you can really get into it because you're drawing from life and what you know," Love/Hate star Barry told the Herald.

Movie director Jim Sheridan also turned out to support the new movie.
