Sinead O'Connor, 'The Wolf Is Getting Married': New Video Weaves A Wild Web (VIDEO)

In an empty room, a figure sits in a chair, wrapped in a white cocoon. Long strings attach to her wrapped body, forming a delicate web that slowly pulls scraps of lace off her skin to reveal tattoos, an eye, and eventually, the woman beneath.

It's not performance art, it's Sinead O'Connor's latest video for "The Wolf Is Getting Married," off of her next, and ninth, album, How About I Be Me (And You Be You)? Though the song begins on a somber note, with O'Connor singing, "I was too free, if that's possible to be, no safety is what I mean, no solid foundation to keep me," it soon transforms into a simple celebration of love. "Your smile makes me smile," she sings, "Your laugh makes me laugh."

"How About I Be Me (And You Be You)?" will be released on February 21. Three of the songs off the album -- "4th And Vine," "Take Off Your Shoes," and "Old Lady" -- are available to stream here.
