Promotion

Two different 24" by 36" posters were issued: one with half a headshot of Sinéad wearing a hoodie, and the other of the album cover art. There was also a 12" by 12" flat, with the album cover art on one side and Sinéad's name and the album title on the other side.

A 3-track CD sampler was given to record stores and radio stations. There were also two posters: one with the cover art which has Sinéad's name at the top and the album name across the bottom, and an A4-size one issued to magazines, also with the cover art, but with Sinéad's name and album title across the bottom.

A phone card announcing the album's release date was issued.

Quotes

(Source: John Reynolds)

A skeleton of this album was put down in the house before it was recorded in Dublin and Holland. The dynamic range of the tracks, from the heavy dub rhythm of Fire on Babylon to the angelic a cappella of In This Heart, commands immediate attention.

Working with Bomb the Bass's Tim Simenon was a hugely enjoyable experience, too.
