Santa Monica-based radio station KCRW is now streaming back on the Web the 1993 performance The Cranberries offered on the Morning Becomes Eclectic show, which features an acoustic version of rare track, False.

The recording, which was no longer available on Internet for more than a decade, was posted back on the radio station website after a few demands. 🙂

The show features interview segments between the four songs performed in acoustic format.

This performance is one of the most praised in the fan community because of its track list and the laidback attitude of the band performing the songs and during the interview.

Here’s your first chance to hear this recording in high quality!

Track list:
1. Linger
2. False
3. Sunday
4. I Will Always

Two-disc edition of “Roses” to be released

November 17, 2011  |  Comments Off on Two-disc edition of “Roses” to be released  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

A two-disc edition of Roses will be available to purchase on February 13, according to Amazon UK. But don’t get too excited about the bonus material…

The second disc will contain live material recorded during the Reunion Tour in Madrid (Spain) on March 12, 2010, where they played most of their past singles. Tracks are to be confirmed.

This seems like an odd choice for a second disc content, considering the possibilities with more recent material (live stadium versions of “Tomorrow” and “Schizophrenic Playboys”, six non-album tracks recorded for Roses, demos from the 2003 recording sessions, acoustic versions of Roses tracks, etc.).

Live stadium versions of past singles, such as “Dreams”, “Zombie”, “Salvation” and “Promises” to name a few, were already proposed on many CD-singles in the past, as bonus material on their last studio album, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee and their 2002 Greatest Hits, Stars, as well as on a 2010 live compilation, Bualadh Bos, and a 3-disc live album, Live in Paris 2010. The latter was a reissue of a series of limited edition albums proposed to fans after European shows of the Reunion Tour, which also included the Madrid show.

Worldwide release date for “Tomorrow” in December?

November 17, 2011  |  Comments Off on Worldwide release date for “Tomorrow” in December?  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

According to Amazon France, “Tomorrow” will be available to purchase in digital format on December 5. Will this be the official release date for all regions of the world?

The song is already available on the UK Amazon site as well as on iTunes in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Another interesting bit of information from the Amazon France:

Copyright: (c) 2011 Timeless Solutions Ltd in association with Shamrock Solutions Ltd under exclusive license to Cooking Vinyl Ltd for the World except Canada

Does this mean that the album will be released on a different label in Canada or that it will be distributed by Downtown Records, as for the U.S.?

More to come soon…

“Tomorrow” arrived at number 8 of the “Taking Off” chart (Triple-A radio format) in the U.S. for the Oct. 31-Nov. 6 period, due to significant spins on WXRT (Chicago).`

The Cranberries might appear on a future Peel Sessions compilation

November 4, 2011  |  1 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

Back in January 1992, The Cranberries recorded a four-track studio session for the John Peel show, more than a year before the release of their first studio album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?. No songs from that session were ever commercially released, but things might change in the next months…

EMI, in partnership with the BBC, released the first volume of a series of Peel Sessions compilations this week. There are no words yet about the release date for the volume covering the early 90’s, nor if a track from The Cranberries will be included.

For their Peel Session, The Cranberries recorded slightly different versions of “Linger”, “Wanted”, “Waltzing Back” and “I Will Always”.

Few years ago, a medium-quality tape recording of this session was featured on an unauthorized bootleg entitled Be with You. Slightly better quality audio files – but nothing compared to the real thing – also circulate in the fan community. Here’s a link (no longer available) for those Cranfans who want it!

For almost 40 years, emerging artists and bands recorded sessions specially intended to be broadcasted on the John Peel show at the BBC. To learn more about the Peel Sessions, visit the Keeping It Peel website.

In Ireland, radio host Dave Fanning from RTÉ (Irish public service broadcaster) gave a similar opportunity to emerging musicians. The Cranberries recorded two sessions for his show in 1991 and 1993. These sessions were (sadly) never commercially released neither. The 1991 session was broadcasted a couple of times in the last few years on the Dan Hegarty show.

“Tomorrow” already a “hot pick” on two U.S. radios

November 3, 2011  |  2 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

According to allaccess.com, KMTT (Seattle) and KINK (Portland, OR) radio stations have already selected “Tomorrow”, The Cranberries first single for Triple-A radios, as one of this week “hot picks” more than 3 weeks before its official radio release date.

Brad Savage, Program Director at WCNR (Charlottesville, VA), also told The Cranberries Press that his station already began airing “Tomorrow” as well. WCNR made a lot of Cranberries fans happy today by posting on its website an acoustic set that Dolores O’ Riordan performed in December 2007.

As for “Show Me the Way”, WRFF (Philadelphia) has been airing it since October 23.
Is “Tomorrow” or “Show Me the Way” playing at your radio station?

Rare 2007 acoustic show by O’ Riordan hits the Web

November 3, 2011  |  Comments Off on Rare 2007 acoustic show by O’ Riordan hits the Web  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  Dolores O' Riordan

Charlottesville-based radio station The Corner (WCNR, 106.1) uploaded on its website today a pretty interesting acoustic show Dolores O’ Riordan performed on December 3, 2007 making this a rare chance to hear some of The Cranberries classics and O’ Riordan solo material in an unplugged style.

This eleven-track performance, recorded at the Gravity Lounge during a free Holiday benefit show, is one of the most generous of her 2007 American promo tour. That night, O’ Riordan not only gave the crowd up-tempo acoustic versions of “Free to Decide” and “Dreams” – rarely played that way –, but also three tracks from her first solo album Are You Listening?. To this date, it is the highest attendance in the history of the venue.

Even though she was struggling with a bad cold, O’ Riordan did not miss an occasion to chat with the crowd, talking about her kids, Christmas and the 90’s, laughing at herself for not being able to do math in her head and for not remembering in which year “Free to Decide” was released (she initially said 1993!), and joking about Steve DiMarchi looking for a wife.

A big THANKS to Brad Savage from 106.1 FM The Corner for answering to this request from The Cranberries Press. You can listen to the show in a streaming format and download the mp3 file at The Corner Lounge Listening Room. (link no longer available)

Track list
1. Linger
2. Ode to My Family
3. Ordinary Day
4. Animal Instinct
5. Zombie
6. Free to Decide
7. When You’re Gone
8. Loser
9. When We Were Young
10. Shattered
11. Dreams

How much do we love these acoustic sets, uh?
