As Zombieguide reported earlier, Brazilian singer Angelica has covered The Cranberries classic “Linger”, with the title “Se a Gente Se Entender” (“If We Understand Ourselves”). Her album has now been released in Brazil (only), but we now have the full MP3 of the song available here on The Cranberries Herald. The song sounds moderately close to the original, and Dolores’s backing vocals seem to be intact (!).

Angelica’s “Se a Gente Se Entender” (Zipped MP3 file, 3.7 MB) (Link no longer available)
The file is zipped, so you will need Winzip to unzip it.

French “This is the Day” single TBA

July 26, 2001  |  Comments Off on French “This is the Day” single TBA  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Reputable French music television station M6 Music has revealed a limited French release will soon be making its way to store shelves. Previously- announced track “This is the Day” is currently scheduled for a release sometime in the near future as a single for France.

It is unknown if the track could be the second single from “Wake Up” or if it will be a France-only release. Non-single album tracks have a reputation of being very popular in France, where “Shattered” made it to the Top 10 radio airplay shortly after the release of “Bury the Hatchet”. Limited singles are also no strangers — recall that France got the very limited “Hollywood” single in 1997. If the track is indeed only limited to France, both “This is the Day” and “Analyse” may be competing for radio airplay.

Rolling Stone, who presumably got to hear the track, described it as “anthemic”.
MCA has yet to confirm the news, but we’ll have more info as it’s available!
Thanks to Dan for the news.

MTV Asia: “Cranberries Smell The Coffee”

July 25, 2001  |  Comments Off on MTV Asia: “Cranberries Smell The Coffee”  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

MTV Asia has posted an interesting news story about the Crans. Although most of the information is previously known, it does feature an “insider” quote of why the band left Island. Also included is another new photo of the band — which resembles another photo you may remember from the official site. This one, taken on the last day of mixing “Wake Up” also includes MCA President Jay Boberg on the far left. That makes the people in the photo, from left to right: Jay Boberg (President/MCA Records), Noel Hogan, Stephen Street (producer), Dolores O’Riordan, Mike Hogan, Fergal Lawler.

Cranberries Smell The Coffee
June 27, 2001

 

Irish rock outfit Cranberries have signed a new record deal with MCA Records and are planning to release the group’s fifth album titled “Wake Up And Smell The Coffee” on October 23, 2001. According to WENN, the band have decided to switch labels when their contract with Island ended after their last album “Bury The Hatchet” failed to do as well in America as their previous releases.

 

A music source says, “The band feel there is a lot of lost ground to be made up in order to attain the same level of success that they once had again.”

 

The band have also engaged the help of producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Morrissey, Blur), who also produced the band’s first two mega- selling albums in the early ’90s.

 

To promote the band’s new album, Cranberries will go on a global promotional tour in early August to December 2001, after which, a world concert tour will follow in Spring 2002. — Lennat Mak

The Cranberries announce US promo tour cities

July 22, 2001  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries announce US promo tour cities  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

On his section of the official site, Fergal has confirmed that they will begin their promo tour in North America and will later continue to Europe.
Confirmed cities/locations for the August promo tour are:

· Los Angeles
· Boulder
· Chicago
· Minneapolis
· New York City
· Canada

More details on exact events and dates will come shortly. Meanwhile, the video shoot for “Analyse” will take place in London on August 3rd and 4th. The promo tour will then follow shortly, with live semi-acoustic performances. For September, the band will be in Europe, doing similar performances as in the US.

Fergal also responded to the “Top 10 Acoustic” poll, commenting that the band didn’t expect to see “Empty” and “Ridiculous Thoughts” on the list.

The HTML version of the site is still in production and should be ready late August. In other official site-related news, the mysterious “Open Gate” section which used to feature a confusing tomato thrown at the screen, now has a purpose. It will now be called “WUASTC”, featuring news and info on the album.

Ferg also recommends that if you’re a Formula 1 fan, you should definitely see a live race. “I was at the Silverstone Grand Prix in England last weekend to support the Jordan Team, and boy, what an experience! The sound from the engines just takes your breath away! Woo-hoo! It seems faster too, than it looks on TV,” he wrote.

Unofficial lyrics for “Analyse”, “Time”, “Carry”

July 22, 2001  |  Comments Off on Unofficial lyrics for “Analyse”, “Time”, “Carry”  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

Zombieguide has obtained unofficial lyrics for three new songs from the upcoming “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee”. However, unlike the lyrics posted thus far on other fan sites, these seem to be accurate. Thanks to Pete Isgrigg for the submission.

Analyse

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Breathe the air
Out there
We are free
We can be
Wide open

For you opened my eyes
To the beauty I see
We will pray
We will stay
Wide open

Don’t analyse
Don’t analyse
Don’t go that way
Don’t live that way
That would paralyse your evolution
*repeat chorus*

la la la This greatest moment
la la la This greatest day
la la la The greatest love of them all
*repeat*

Close your eyes
Close your eyes
Breathe the air
Out there
Fantasize
Fantasize
We are open

For you opened my eyes
To the beauty I see
We will pray
We will stay
Together

la la la This greatest moment
la la la This greatest day
la la la The greatest love of them all
*repeat*

la la la

Time Is Ticking Out

We’d better think about the things we say
We’d better think about the games we play
The world went round, the world around

We’d better think about the consequences
We’d better think about the global senses
The time went out, yeah
The time went out

What about Chernobyl?
What about radiation?
We don’t know
We don’t know

What about deprivation?
Gluttony, the human nation?
We don’t know
We don’t know
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all

Time is ticking out

Looks like we screwed up the ozone layer
I wonder if the politicians care
The dime went down, the dime went down

What about our children then
Is there nothing left for them?
We don’t know
We don’t know
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all

Ahh I don’t need oxygen, I don’t need oxygen
For me love is all, for me love is all
For me love is all, for me love is all

Time is ticking out yeah Time is ticking out

Carry On

I didn’t understand the things you’re going through
I never understood
I really never knew
Carry on

Carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on
Carry on
We’ll have a glass of wine
Or cigarette

Take destiny by the hand
And lead it far away
Take it to another land
We will all decay

Carry on
Carry on
The sun will always shine
Carry on
Carry on
We’ll have a glass of wine
Or cigarette

MCA reprimands Edge 102 over “Analyse” airplay

July 21, 2001  |  Comments Off on MCA reprimands Edge 102 over “Analyse” airplay  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

While roaming the streets of downtown Toronto, I stopped by Edge102, the radio station famously known for being the first to play The Cranberries latest single, “Analyse”. Curious to know how they got a hold of the promo three weeks early, I questioned them about it. Though they didn’t answer my question, their response wasn’t nearly what I expected. The deejay started to laugh and said, “Hee hee, we actually got in trouble for that !” He went on to tell me that the band didn’t really mind, but it was the record company who emailed them complaining about it (Apparently because of promotional purposes). But I’m sure we all are very content with Edge102’s mistake… How much longer could our eager ears wait to hear some new Cran-tunes?

Analyse hi-res cover scan, new info

July 20, 2001  |  Comments Off on Analyse hi-res cover scan, new info  |  by Zombieguide News Archive  |  The Cranberries

On the current “Cranfan Exclusive” part of the official page, a high- resolution scan of the promo for “Analyse” has been posted. The page also notes that the photo was taken on May 30th, but more importantly, has confirmed what has been suspected for several months: Storm Thorgerson will be returning for the art for the fifth album. In this photo, Thorgerson was responsible for the prominent polka-dot motif.

For those with a short memory, Thorgerson for the artwork on “Bury the Hatchet”, all related singles, and “Beneath the Skin”.

However, don’t get too attached to the art — you won’t be seeing it on store shelves. Official sources have confirmed that this art will not be on the commercial release for “Analyse”, so it will remain strictly on the promo (much like the art for the “You and Me” single). Will we see new Thorgerson art on the commercial release? We’ll see.
