We learned back in September that The Cranberries have begun writing more new songs, presumably for an eventual sixth album. Apparently, the band was able to talk more about those songs to “The Age”, in another interview in September.
Along with some general interview questions about the new album, the article ends with this statement:
“The band is already gearing up for a sixth album to come either during or after a world tour they plan to kick off in February.”
Certainly, it’s still too early for any concrete plans, but if the band were able to record another album and release it within a year, it would make it the shortest span of time between two Cranberries albums. If you’re interested in reading the entire interview at “The Age”, you can do so here (you should find it very similar to the “La Press” interview).
