Irish singer Sinead O'connor is planning to retire from music with a big bang, by releasing a banned tribute song about DIANA, Princess Of Wales.

BRIGIDINE DIANA, which Sinead describes as a "reaction to the Elton John 'CANDLE IN THE WIND' track", was banned from the official Diana tribute album because of its controversial lyrics - but 6 years after the princess' death Sinead is determined it will be heard.

O'Connor, who is three months pregnant, has put the track on her farewell album SHE WHO DWELLS.

As well as an antithesis of Elton John's Diana song, which she "personally strongly objected to", Brigidine Diana pays tributes to the princess' sons HARRY and WILLIAM.
