FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (April 28, 2017) - The Cranberries have just released Something Else, featuring re-worked renditions of their major hits, as well as brand new material, including the single "Why." The album is available today via BMG on digital and CD formats, and includes seminal Cranberries songs like "Linger," "Zombie," "Dreams," and "Ode To My Family"... newly re-recorded in orchestral and acoustic arrangements in celebration of the band's 25th anniversary. CLICK HERE for all purchase and download options.
Last year, over two weeks in the University of Limerick, at the home of the Irish Chamber Orchestra, the band revisited old times; Dolores laid down vocals as small booths were created to record the instruments as if live. She was no longer a child, singing her amazing, mature songs from an inexperienced vantage point but a woman now, with the capacity to throw her life at the music, the benefit of hindsight. "I prefer them like this," she says of the new recordings of old songs, "with a little bit more experience behind them, with a new lease of life. They sound fresh again."

As the record began to take full shape, three new songs were added, to stop it just being a Proustian rush of memories lost and found. The first was The Glory, which Dolores explains she wrote in The Irish Chamber Orchestra’s rehearsal rooms at the University of Limerick. She then brought out two songs she had been keeping in her personal stash, until she could place them in the right home: "Rupture" ("about depression, about being in that black hole and finding it hard to get out of it") and the forthcoming single "Why?" ("written just after my father passed, the hardest time").

It’s testament to Dolores and Noel’s song-writing prowess that the new additions to the Cranberries cannon sit seamlessly next to the old. When they began finalising details for the record, they decided on Something Else, a nod to the first record’s Everybody Else…, a title neither riven with the promise of future endeavours or locked into the past.

In celebration of the new album, The Cranberries will be embarking on a North American tour. Please see below for the full tour routing. Come experience The Cranberries' greatest hits performed with a string quartet!
