More information about O’Riordan/Alexandrakis collaboration

March 12, 2015  |  5 Comments  |  by Jury  |  D.A.R.K., Dolores O' Riordan

Composer/producer Eric Alexandrakis continues to tease Dolores’ fans with new exciting bits of information about their collaboration. And it seems like this collaboration has an official title now: Electrons featuring Dolores O’Riordan (Electrons is the name of Alexandrakis’ project which includes different musicians from bands like Duran Duran, The Cure, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and others).
A few weeks ago we reported about the new Electrons feat. Dolores O’Riordan song “You Got What You Wanted.” Here’s new information about this track:

The song is written and recorded by Eric Alexandrakis, Perry Bamonte (The Cure; lead guitar?), Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers; drums), Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries; vocal) and Andy Rourke (The Smiths; bass guitar). As you can see, Andy Rourke from Dolores’ new band, Jetlag NYC, has joined the Electrons, too.

The lyrics for “You Got What You Wanted” were written by Dolores O’Riordan and, according to the title, it may refer to the recent events in her life.

Yesterday Eric Alexandrakis has posted a new teasing picture on his Facebook page:

We can only ponder how many songs the A and B sides of this vinyl have… and there’s a clue! A few days ago one of our readers, Mimi, has posted this information regarding Dolores’ work with Electrons:

“They have quite a few tracks together:

“Redemption”
“Robophobic Redemption” (by far the most amazing sounding thing Dolores has ever been on)
“Purple Heart Redemption” (very clubby)
“Trust” (a.k.a. “La Fine”)
“You Got What You Wanted” (haven’t heard it yet)
and more coming from what I hear.

So… are we gonna have an ALBUM full of Dolores’ songs with Electrons? Time will tell… or let’s just wait for another hint from Mr. Alexandrakis 😉

No, Guinness is not what British people love the most in Ireland, Irish accent is !!
Guinness “only” is number 2.

The Cranberries are number 36 which 25 years after their debut is not that bad. By comparison U2 is #16, Sinead O’Connor #17 (both recently released an album) Thin Lizzy #22 and The Pogues #10 amongst many other ultimate Irish legends.

The list of the 50 greatest Irish things was made according to a survey which took into account the opinions of more than 2000 people in the UK.

No doubt most of you readers/fans would have placed The Cranberries as reason #1 to love and visit Ireland. Right?
