If you’ve been conscious and reading Zombieguide often, you’ll know that last year, The Cranberries went into the studio to record a demo of four songs with longtime producing veteran Stephen Street. The band plans to use these songs sometime in the indefinite future as a basis for their sixth album, which has been put on hold.
Noel Hogan, speaking to Zombieguide in July about the demo, told us “They’re recorded, but they haven’t been mixed, so we have rough mixes of them. They’re in the bag and ready there to go. So I guess when we’re ready to go, we’ll have those four titles to fall back on.”
Earlier today, Noel emailed us the titles of the four songs: “Sorry for taking so long to get back to you with the names of the tracks we recorded with Stephen. The tracks are…”
1. Astral Projection
3. Raining in My Heart
4. The Fall
The band first played “Astral Projection” at the beginning of last year’s summer tour (which included dates with The Rolling Stones). Surprisingly, the other new song, “In It Together” is not part of the demo.
Longtime fans may recall an old rumor of an unreleased song from the No Need to Argue period called “The Fall.” We do not know if there is any relation between the old rumor and the new song, but we will see if Noel can perhaps shed some light on that particular point of interest.
Noel also told us today, “I have most of the track names for my own album now. If you like, I can also send them on.” He promises to send updates along as they happen, so stay with Zombieguide for the latest Cranberries buzz…
