Cranberries Plan New Album, 1st LP Reissue

Share This:

The surviving members of The Cranberries have announced that they will finish working on the new album they were recording with Dolores O’Riordan before her January death. Additionally, the band will release a 25th anniversary edition of their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We.

In a statement on their website, the band said, “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 remastered 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”

O’Riordan died January 15 in London. A cause of death has not yet been revealed.
