It contributed towards the success of her bestselling album I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got.
Weeks before her death, the musician revealed she was planning to create new music as she showed off her Johnny Cash guitar.
Her admission came following her recent move into a new pad in South London.
Sinead put a pause on performing last year following the loss of her son Shane in January.
The 17-year-old’s death was confirmed as suicide after he was reported as missing.
The musician has another three children; Jake, 36, Roisin, 27, and Yeshua, 16.
She previously revealed the specific instructions she left to her kids in the event of her dying.
Speaking to People, she said: “See, when the artists are dead, they’re much more valuable than when they’re alive. Tupac has released way more albums since he died than he ever did alive, so it’s kind of gross what record companies do.
“That’s why I’ve always instructed my children since they were very small, ‘If your mother drops dead tomorrow before you call 911, call my accountant and make sure the record companies don’t start releasing my records and not telling you where the money is’.”
