The Cranberries will not record another ‘Wake Up’-like album

The Cranberries will not rush into recording a new album, according to Noel Hogan. The band does not want to repeat the errors they made with “Bury The Hatchet” and “Wake Up and Smell the Coffee”.

“When I listen back to particularly the last two albums before we took the break, the things on there, I kind of go ‘God, what was I thinking!'” said Hogan with a laugh to Chanel News Asia.
“We’re not going to do that again. If that (writing songs for a new album) takes a few years, so be it. If you rush into this just to get a song out, you have to live with it for the rest of your life.”

Hogan also told that, beside the fact that they all became parents and wanted to spend time with their family in the early 2000’s, they went into hiatus because “the fun had gone out of it. We just kind of weren’t really feeling it was working for us any more. We weren’t arguing with each other, because I don’t think anybody cared enough to even bother arguing.”

About the Roses Tour setlist the band intend to keep playing their past hits while adding a bunch of new songs from Roses: “We are still going to do the hits because if I go see a band, and they just play all the [songs from the] new album, and nothing else, you kind of go ‘Oh God’ [as] you are kind of waiting for the hits all night. I hate it when that happens!”

    I consider these albums as errors, which taught me the songs of these albums is that I live my life as others want me to live apart a song does not take 1 year to write, you take what the brain and imagination gives to light.

      pardon me, the first part is “i didn’t consider those albums as errors”
