The trailer for the upcoming Sinead O'Connor documentary 'Nothing Compares' has dropped.

The film chronicles the career of the iconic Irish singer-songwriter and features live performances, music videos and previously unseen footage.

Directed by Kathryn Ferguson ('Taking the Waters', 'Space to Be'), 'Nothing Compares' charts Sinéad OʼConnorʼs phenomenal rise to worldwide fame. It also examines how she used her voice at the height of her stardom, before her iconoclastic personality led to her exile from the pop mainstream.

Focusing on O’Connor’s prophetic words and deeds from 1987 to 1993, the film presents an authoritative, richly cinematic portrait of this fearless artist through a contemporary feminist lens.

'Nothing Compares' is Belfast-born Ferguson's documentary feature directorial debut. It was also an official selection in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

The film has gone on to win various awards at film festivals this year, including Best Irish Documentary at Galway Film Fleadh, the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Aegean Film Festival, and the Audience Award at Docs Ireland.

Variety reported that the movie releases in New York and LA theatres on September 23 for a one-week run in order to obtain Academy Awards qualification. It also streams on Showtime from September 30.

Ferguson began work on the documentary in 2018. "We were gearing up to the abortion referendum, and we just had the equal marriage referendum a few years prior, so it just felt absurd that Sinead’s voice wasn’t part of the conversation,” said the director.

“She was somebody who had been so bold and brave and who really kicked the door down, particularly [in Ireland]. I felt like she needed to be part of the conversation, and it felt quite urgent.”

O'Connor booked a number of gigs over the summer - including a headline show at the Galway International Arts Festival. However, they were cancelled "due to continuing grief over the tragic loss of her beloved son Shane earlier this year." She will not be performing for the rest of 2022.

'Nothing Compares' releases in Irish cinemas on October 7.
