More information about O’Riordan/Alexandrakis collaboration

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 song “You Got What You Wanted”. Today there’s more 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 exciting photo on Facebook with the comment “Betcha wish you had one of these.

Probably just a vinyl made to one copy or maybe just a photoshop montage of a record that does not really exist yet and we can only ponder how many songs the A-Side and B-Side of this vinyl have.

And there’s a clue as one of our readers, Mimi, posted a few days ago the following information regarding Dolores’ work with Electrons:

“They have quite a few tracks together:
“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 another hint from Mr. Alexandrakis 😉

  3. any day now

    whens this sh*t gonna happen? they arent promoting it very well. they should at least give a tentative release date.

    Agree with you “any day now”
    but for what I can understand of this project it is not to be released soon as it still seems on the process of recording.
    That’s the problem of social networks nowadays as everyone wants to show everyhthing (exception for Dolores ahaha) and it looks like Alexandrakis pictured a sort of home made LP with a typo Electrons/Dolores just to tease us but in my opinion this LP doesn’t really exist as they still seem to record or mix some parts these days. It was just to put a picture on these bloody social networks. Or maybe it is a test pressing just one copy. Just my opinion, I may be wrong as I have absolutely no information.

    Sounds good, but I’d really just like to know how Dolores is doing, if she’s ok.

    And of course, if there any further Cranberries plans.
