According to the article entitled “Cranberries’ songwriters sign with Warner/Chappell Music” published on musicweek.com, 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”.
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 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.
