The Cranberries To Complete Final Album With Dolores O’Riordan

The surviving members of the Cranberries, Mike and Noel Hogan and Fergal Lawler, have announced that they are once again moving forward with two projects.

The band was working on two album when lead singer Dolores O’Riordan died suddenly on January 15 at the age of 46. The first is an expanded deluxe edition of the group’s debut album Everybody Else is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? which included their breakout songs “Dreams” and “Linger”. Originally planned for a release date around now (March 7), it has been pushed back to later in the year.

The other project is a new album of originals on which O’Riordon had completed vocals before her passing. That is now tentatively scheduled for next year.

The band’s statement:

This month marks the 25th anniversary of the release of our debut album “Everybody Else is doing it so why can’t we”. In recent weeks we have had a number of media enquiries asking if we were planning anything to commemorate this milestone.

We can confirm that since last summer the band had been working with Universal Music on the creation of a very special 25th anniversary edition of the album, a newly re mastered version with previously unreleased material of ours as well as other bonus material from the era of our debut album. We had planned to release this special edition this month to coincide with the 25th anniversary. However, given Dolores’ passing in January we put the entire project on hold.

In recent weeks we revisited this. After much consideration we have decided to finish what we started. We thought about it and decided that as this is something that we started as a band, with Dolores, we should push ahead and finish it. So that’s the plan, to finish the project and get the special 25th anniversary edition album out later this year.

We will also be completing the recording of a new studio album as previously announced, which we also started last year and for which Dolores had already recorded the vocals. All going well we hope to have this new album finished and out early next year.

We will keep you all up to date as things progress.

Noel, Mike and Ferg
