The Cranberries Confirm Release Of Final Album With Dolores O'Riordan And Debut LP Reissue

Thursday, 08 March 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

The Cranberries will release a new album featuring vocals by Dolores O'Riordan, who passed away in January aged 46.

In a Facebook post the band confirmed recording for the album started last year and that O'Riordan had laid down all her parts prior to her death. They hope to release the record next year.

They also announced that they will mark the 25th anniversary of their debut LP, 'Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?', with a reissue, which will contain previously unreleased material.

Check out the full statement below.

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
