Sinead makes noises for Mencap

Sinead O'Connor will play at Mencap's Little Noise Sessions

Sinead O'Connor is to showcase her new band by headlining an intimate gig in aid of charity Mencap.

The Nothing Compares 2 U singer is among the acts to perform at Mencap's Little Noise Sessions, curated by Jo Whiley, at St John-at-Hackney church in London in November.

Sinead said: "I was really excited to get the invitation to perform for Jo Whiley at Mencap's Little Noise sessions; I'm going to be playing tons of new stuff with my spanking new band and I really hope that I can do justice to Mencap."

The sessions begin on Tuesday November 22 with a gig from Elbow and Sinead plays the closing gig on Sunday November 27.

Elbow front-man Guy Garvey said: "We are dead proud to be added to the list of amazing bands that have done the Little Noise Sessions. In fact we have organised a warm-up tour of Europe before the show to make sure we are in tip top condition when we play!"

Also in the line-up are Marina And The Diamonds, Goldfrapp, Ed Sheeran and Example.

Mencap ambassador Jo Whiley said: "Mencap's Little Noise Sessions are back for the sixth successful year and we're excited to be moving to St John-at Hackney - a venue that in its 700-year history has never played host to a music gig like this! Each year we aim to surprise and inspire the audience, with a week of unbelievable shows coupled with a simply stunning backdrop."

Tickets go on general release from October 10 with an exclusive presale for subscribers from October 7 at www.littlenoisesessions.org.uk.
