" I was just trying to be really honest, " he adds of The tributary track, which features on his first solo album in 15 years, Blind on a Galloping Horse.
" I love Sinead. We had a brilliant, beautiful experience making a record that I hope The World will hear next year some time. "
" I've heard people call Sinead mad, bonkers blah blah, " he continues. " Sinead was one of The Most fiercely intelligent people I've ever met, and she was far from mad. She had some Mental Health issues yes, but she wasn't mad.
" She was a very sensitive, beautiful person. She used to ring me up and say, 'how are you doing? I think you're working too hard'.
" So do I believe in Sinead O'Connor? Absolutely. "
While The Album they worked on together at his Belfast studio has yet to surface, one New Track , The Magdalene Song, did recently appear in The finale of - The Bbc mystery drama, starring Ruth Wilson , about The trauma of A Woman who spent Time In Ireland's controversial Magdalene Laundries.
Holmes says O'Connor, who gave her permission for it to be used, was perfect for The series; as she was " very outspoken about The Catholic church" and had " spent Time In a care home that was linked to a laundry". It meant she had first-hand experience, he says.
The producer, who notes how he always works best to moving Images - Like he did for director Steven Soderbergh 's hit Ocean's trilogy movie score, reworked a stripped-back organ version of The Magdalene Song to fit The End of The series.
" It's a song of two parts, " he says. " The First part is heart-breaking. But then in classic Sinead [style], It Comes to a certain point where The emotion of The Song completely flips and it becomes this song of defiance.
Since Holmes's last album, 2008's The Holy Pictures, The Bafta and Ivor Novello-winning creative has been busy providing - alongside his band The Unloved - as well as records for The likes of O'Connor and.'Profoundly challenged'
" I had never written a song until I made The Holy Pictures, and what I realised was that I can't actually write words unless they mean something, " he says. " Both of my parents had died and I felt it was my duty to pay tribute to them. "
" I didn't really feel that I had anything to say until Covid happened, " says Holmes. " I grew up in Belfast, I was getting into Acid House when I was Like 19, 20 in 1989. The Last thing I wanted to talk about was The Troubles .
Opening track, When People Are Occupied Resistance Is Justified, features first-hand testimonies from a Palestinian Ambulance Driver as well as Ukrainian and Afghan refugees who have now found a home in Belfast. " That made me feel really very proud to be from where I'm from, " he says, noting how there are Irish People (and pubs) dotted all over The globe.
He has a form of OCD called which, he says, can cause negative thoughts to spiral.
The only other non-Holmes original on his new record is a cover of an " amazing track" by another called I Laughed Myself To Sleep.
Like O'Connor before him, Weatherall's maverick " genius" is confirmed and celebrated on wax on Holmes's roll-call of a lead single. " I believe in Weatherall
" Andrew was a fantastic songwriter; a very intelligent, clever, inspiring, beautiful human being who had an incredible generosity Of Spirit and brains to burn, " he says. " You'd leave Andrew's company and you'd just want to go and make something.
" He was someone who was very, very important in My Life and development as a human being. "
