In 1993 Bono joined with Gavin Friday to work on the soundtrack to the film “In the Name of the Father”. They worked together on a number of songs, including “Billy Boola” and “In the Name of the Father” which they also performed on the soundtrack. A third song, “You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart” was recorded by Sinéad O’Connor for use in the movie. A fourth song, “The Father and His Wife the Spirit” was only found on the single for “You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart”. The single was released with the one b-side, as well as a number of remixes of the title track. “In the Name of the Father” was also released as a single with a number of remixes of the title track.
“You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart” was nominated for a Golden Globe award that year. The song was recorded at STS Studios in Dublin, the room lit only by candle and Sinéad arrived with a doll to sing to, and a vase of flowers, and the session lasted until 2:30 in the morning. They also recorded “The Father and His Wife the Spirit” during the same recording session. The entire recording session is documented in Bill Flanagan’s book “Until the End of the World.” Demo versions of the song featuring Bono performing the singing have circulated and can be found with some searching.
The single was released in a number of formats including a 7-inch single, a 12-inch single, a cassette single, and a CD. Throughout Europe two CDs were circulated, one containing three mixes and the b-side, and the other containing just one mix and the b-side. The single was released in Australia, France, Germany and the UK. There was no commercial release in North America, but promotional releases were circulated.
