April 23, 2015  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Title says it all…
Good news for collectors and people who still don’t have it on vinyl, the masterpiece album of The Cranberries will be reissued on Plain Label on July 17th 2015 and can be pre-ordered online right now for $23.78 on the Runtshop website.

The news directly came from Runtshop’s Facebook last April 9th.
For now The Cranberries or their management made no official statement, so it is too soon to know if the LP will be available anywhere else but according to the Runtshop pre-order page the offer doesn’t look exclusive nor limited edition.

NNTA reissue 2015

This reissue might directly be linked to the partnership recently signed by Dolores and Noel with Warner/Chappell Music as seen in this news. If that is the case we could expect some more reissues like this in the coming months/years. Nice!

Angelo Badalamenti: Dolores and I are working on her album

Again thanks to Sara from Cranberries Italia for searching the web and finding this interview of the composer Angelo Badalamenti given to the website Spirit & Flesh.
In this long interview about David Lynch, movies, his musical career and other things only one line is about Dolores but what a line:

Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries and I are working on her album; she’s a wonderful lyricist with an edge to her voice.

The Cranberries’ songwriters sign with Warner/Chappell Music

April 2, 2015  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

According to this online article by Music Week, Dolores and Noel signed a publishing partnership with Warner/Chappell Music UK covering their share of the band’s body of work 1993-2004 from Everyboby Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We? to Wake Up And Smell The Coffee.
Let’s note the last studio album of The Cranberries Roses doesn’t seem to be part of the deal.

Richard Manners, Managing director of Warner Chappell UK says:

I am delighted Warner/Chappell will provide a home for the works of Dolores and Noel, and I am especially happy to be reunited with their amazing music having signed the band’s original publishing deal at the start of their career. This is a distinctive catalogue, melodically and lyrically, and their huge international success has given it a truly global reach. They continue to be popular and highly respected musicians today, and we look forward to working with them and their management team to create new opportunities for their outstanding compositions and build on their already impressive career.

This is pretty good news which proves that Dolores and Noel still can agree about The Cranberries. Up to now, nobody has heard again of the court action launched by Dolores against Noel a year and a half ago (see CW old news about that by clicking here) so it looks like things are getting better between them.

Also, let’s emphasize that in this article, P.J. O’Riordan (Dolores’ brother) is mentioned as Dolores’ manager.
