The Nothing Compares 2 U hitmaker shared a snap to announce the upcoming release of her next record, I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss, and her new look stunned fans.
In the picture, O'Connor dons a black wig, heavy make-up and a skin-tight rubber dress, marking a huge change to her usual shaved-head look and casual attire.
O'Connor reveals the album's title was inspired by Ban Bossy, a viral campaign launched by Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg to encourage women to take charge in the workplace.
In a post on her website, the singer writes: "Just a note to explain the title of my forthcoming album IS taken from Sheryl Sandberg's Ban Bossy campaign.
"Originally I had a different title, The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase 'I'm not bossy, I'm the boss' and became aware of the Ban Bossy campaign, I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss and I think Sheryl's campaign is a terribly important one."
The album will be released in August.
