2 new interviews with Dolores appeared online this week.
First, the website Hi Res Audio Central published on March 28 an article about the forthcoming album “Something Else” and there’s a few words by Dolores O’Riordan herself. Just a glimpse as more of the interview will be coming soon, closer to the album’s release date says the author.
[it’s important to] keep it all sounding natural and real. I wanted us to do it like David Bowie did, where he would leave in the breathing and other elements in the mix that weren’t technically perfect. Whenever a production is too clean and too perfect, you lose the sense of character of both the songs and the singer.
The second interview is a phone interview given to the Colombian radio station “W Radio”.
It’s only 8:43 min. long and with all the language translations, in the end, the interview is quite short. You can hear the replay published on the internet yesterday by clicking this link or on the player below:
About the music industry which radically changed these days and her strategy:
“I don’t think I have done anything different…”
About Latino America concerts:
“I hope to come back in the next 12 months, I think it’s beautiful and the audience is always great there”
About a Colombian show with The Cranberries:
“We’ll certainly consider that, if the right offer comes in and the gig comes up we’ll be there”
About the album Something Else and the collaboration with the Irish Chamber Orchestra:
“We appeared on an American TV show called The Bachelorette and performed with a quartet and it sounded really nice, we did Linger, so myself and Noel the guitar player we decided to do an album and take all the songs with a live set and do them with a quartet”
About the song Rapture:
“I often find myself quite getting low and when you’re low it’s easy to write…”
“…I had it as a demo… recorded in the last few years, so it seemed appropriate to release it now”
About a song she likes to sing the most:
“I don’t really have a favorite, they’re all different experiences in times in my life and different years so they’re all individually precious”
Third and last thing today, Olé Koretsky published on his Instagram and Facebook accounts a new video recorded inside a cessna with the following (full of information) message:
“New song about time travel. got a few fresh ones. #cessna + #livePA vs. #scienceagrees“

Totally out of the blue, we can watch Olé, Dolores and 2 pilots inside that very small plane and, even more interesting, the soundtrack seems to be a piece of a new song by D.A.R.K.
The images were possibly recorded in Mexico last February while they were touring with The Cranberries. Please note that Olé says there’s a few fresh other songs.
After Andy Rourke recently, it’s good to hear that D.A.R.K. is always on a creative mode!!
