Irish singer Sinead O'Connor has undergone a dramatic makeover to promote her new album.

The singer shared a photo 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.
