Back in 2002, Damien Rice released O, which shot him from obscurity to one of the most highly regarded songwriters of the decade. But fame has been a fickle beast for the legendarily reclusive Rice, and he's released only one true album since O: 2006's 9.

The star has been famously reclusive over the years, popping up on the occasional guest verse, but largely staying out of the spotlight until this summer, when he reunited with Big Boi to play a string of festivals. He’s also starring as Jimi Hendrix in Jimi: All Is by My Side this fall. So while he may be moving on from hip-hop, chances are we haven’t seen the last of the star ... Discuss
