Out of the blue, the demo version of the still unreleased song “Croatia” recently surfaced on the internet. It was posted on YouTube on the ‘Cranberries Music Video Edits’ channel.
Please note the images in this video are nothing official, obviously, and only the audio part really counts.
As you may know, the song is actually a Dolores O’Riordan solo song (AYL era) not The Cranberries.
Thanks for this gem!
More than 7 months after the passing of Dolores, tributes all over the world continue. We can’t review them all as they are too many, however let’s note 3 interesting ones which just happened these last few days:
The first tribute is currently hanging proudly at Connolly’s Cross, Co.Limerick. It was made by the art school ‘Class Art Studio’ from Ballyadam, Pallasgreen, Co Limerick. Over 30 children worked on different parts of the mural, each painting an individual butterfly inspired by The Cranberries song “Just My Imagination”.
More photos on the Class Art Studio’s Facebook.
Second tribute to notice concerns a band called ‘whenyoung’ who covered “Dreams” to pay their respect to a band who inspired them. The band members grew up in Limerick too…
The song is now available on Spotify and you can watch below the video posted on Vevo/YouTube:
The 3rd interesting tribute just happened a few hours ago on the Irish TV channel RTÉ One where the national school choir from Moyross, The Corpus Christi School Choir, performed “Dreams” in a show called ‘Up For The Match’ ahead of this Sunday’s All Ireland Final.
The performance was just posted on YouTube:
As you may remember the album “Something Else” will be reissued on green vinyl in 2 days (August 3rd) and today the first images of the sealed front cover with its sticker appeared on the internet on Instagram here and here. No image of the green vinyl itself for now but it should appear pretty soon. You can still pre-order the album now as this limited edition colored vinyl is not yet sold out. It’s available almost everywhere, for example on Amazon.com
UPDATE – AUGUST 2
Pretty soon indeed! Here comes the first photo of the green vinyl. Thanks to Instagram user patric_sea and to Isaac for the link.
