The lads back in studio to record next Cranberries album

The Cranberries are in studio this week to record the next (and possibly final?) Cranberries album. These last 24 hours, they published a few photos on their Instagram account:

    “So we start the album”


    “Back in the studio” – (Noel with a new tattoo)

    “Day 2 of recording”

Let’s note the band was in studio last week as well (or maybe just Noel?), at the famous Abbey Road studios in London, to remaster the “Everybody Else…” album for the 25th Anniversary edition that should be released later this year.

This week, the three of them gathered at Kore Studios, in London too, to record a brand new Cranberries album. For those who are wondering how they’ll be dealing with vocals without Dolores, please keep in mind the last interview Noel Hogan gave to RollingStone: “I spoke to Dolores last Friday and she was great. We spoke about getting back to work – recording and new tracks we were working on. She sent some of those tracks to me by email on Sunday morning”, as well as the band’s recent statement: “we will also be completing the recording of a new studio album as previously announced, which we also started last year and for which Dolores had already recorded the vocals.

Everyone can easily imagine how painful going through these tracks must be for the lads. Like many fans who are supporting them through social media, we’re sending love and courage to Noel, Mike and Fergal.

We love you guys, In It Together!

    The last album with Dolores on vox that is for sure. Hapoy and sad at the same time. Are they going to search for a new singer after that? I hope not. Best to you lads. Juan

    Oh Gosh they’re looking so exhausted and devastated. Just like us all I guess. But why going so fast? Noone’s in a hurry. They should take their time. We don’t need the new album immediately. Ok for the 25 anniversary album this year, obviously, but the next/last studio album can wait, don’t you think??

    You have all my support guys. May Dolores be with you. Love

    The Black Album

      That could be a great title for the album. I can already imagine the cover, all black with just the cranberries logo in red color. Title appearing only on the sides of the sleeve.

    Going through that Instagram just made the empty spot Dolores left in my heart a little bigger. Really wish things turned out differently for her.

    This album will be the most important of your albums so put your all in guys I cant wait its going to be spectacular and I’m sure Dolores is Listening!

    I’m happy the lads are soldiering on with the completion of this project. However, I hope this is the last studio album we’ll see from The Cranberries.

    The only thing I can possibly see the lads doing is what the remaining members of Queen have done: Continue with a “guest” singer every few years playing legacy material. However, I hope they won’t pursue this route as I (and most fans) seriously cannot picture Dolores ever being “replaced” when one considers that she was more than just “the singer.” The anniversaries (25 for “No Need to Argue” next year in addition to this new album), biographies, films, etc., will likely keep the lad’s busy on the Cranberries end for the next several years. They can then dedicate the rest of their time to their side bands/projects. I’m wiling to bet that the band will finally get the respect they deserved before Dolores’ passing. It’s a shame that it always takes a tragedy like this for these things to happen.

    I am wish you guys the best and I know this is very difficult! You guys look so somber. I appreciate this so much as do many others. I am hoping you guys will continue to put out remastered cranberries albums to celebrate and maybe some DVD/Blu Ray live releases or compilations from TV performances those would be great! I will support you guys whatever you do Dolores will be there looking down upon us!
