Earlier this month, Sinead O'Connor shocked fans by sporting an edgy black wig on the cover of her new album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss. But raven hair wasn't the only color the normally bald rocker wanted to try out!

The art for her new single, "Take Me to Church," shows the 47-year-old looking glam in a long-haired red wig, a word we don't typically use to describe the star!

Photographer Donal Moloney said the Irish singer "had a ball doing the shoot" and "loves the shots."

"She's very excited about the album," Donal told FOX411. "I've never seen her look so good and I'm very proud of the results."

Sinead explained the inspiration behind the single in a recent press release. "The protagonist I'm writing about has had a profoundly distressing experience from which she is ultimately able to not only salvage herself but give birth to herself, coming to the conclusion, 'I am only one I should adore.'"

She also revealed why she chose this title for her 10th album.

"Originally I had…The Vishnu Room, but a few months back when I saw the phrase ‘I’m not bossy, I’m the boss’…I wished I could re-name the album, since indeed it can be tricky being a female boss," the vocalist shared on her website.
