Amanda Palmer and The Righteous Babes Cover Sinéad O’Connor's “The Last Day Of Our Acquaintance”

Musician, best-selling author, TED speaker, and community leader Amanda Palmer and powerhouse female supergroup The Righteous Babes have united to pay homage to the late, great Sinéad O’Connor with a deeply personal rendition of the Irish singer-songwriter’s classic “The Last Day of Our Acquaintance” - arranged by composer/arranger Jherelk Bischoff - available everywhere today.


Newly returned to the United States following an 8-day tour of New Zealand that extended into a two-year pandemic holding pattern, a heartbroken Palmer penned a passionate encomium upon O’Connor’s unfortunate passing that was read by over 3M via Facebook. Inspired by the response, she decided to create a fast cover of “The Last Day of Our Acquaintance” (from O’Connor’s landmark 1990 second album, I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got), recording initial tracks in Los Angeles with longtime collaborator/co-producer Jherek Bischoff – now, as always, fully crowdfunded by Palmer’s trailblazing Patreon. A portion of the proceeds from the song will be donated to The Irish Women Survivors Support Network.
