Big day today in the Cranberries world, the band just updated their official website cranberries.com as well as all their socials with the cover of their new – and last – studio album “In The End”, along with a long statement to explain the process of the album. No release date has been announced yet, hopefully soon… (possibly Spring 2019)

Also, to mark the first anniversary of Dolores’s passing, they will be releasing the first single “All Over Now” on the 15th of January.

In The End – album cover

You might recognize Noel’s son, Dylan, holding a guitar on the left, where his father is used to standing on stage. Although the other 3 kids are not yet known, we can imagine they are kids from Fergal, Mike and Dolores’ family.

EDIT: The little Emma is indeed the daughter of one of Dolores’ nieces and the name of little boy on the bass is William, son of Tommy O’Carroll and Kay O’Carroll. No more details about his link with Mike yet; family? or friend? or else?

UPDATE – MARCH 11th

More about the kids on the cover…

Emma, alias Dolores O’Riordan, is the daughter of Elaine O’Riordan. Elaine is one of Dolores’ nieces and is the little girl with Dolores in the majestic horse and cart on Dolores’ wedding day.

Dylan Hogan, alias Noel Hogan, is Noel’s son. To illustrate, a photo from Noel’s private Instagram account (the one and only time).

William O’Carroll, alias Mike Hogan, is Mike’s nephew. Remember the name of Mike’s wife, Siobhan O’Carroll (Thanks to Mat in the comments below). On 18 January 2019, the Meelick National School posted a great photo on Facebook.

In the role of Fergal Lawler, the name of the little boy is still unknown and the only detail that surfaced yet is that he is Fergal’s nephew.

    Amamos a Dolores y a The Cranberries, se que es dificil todo esto, pero, es el mejor homenaje para ella en el cielo.
    Mil Gracias

    Yes for sure it could be Ferg’s son on drums. Great idea!
    Shooting their kids in a total mess place that’s exactly where The Cranberries are now after that past shitty year. I love that cover.

      By the way… ” William, son of Tommy O’Carroll and Kay O’Carroll.” Mike’s wife, Siobhan… her maiden name is O’Carroll… so the link is “family”…

    Man, I just about lost it reading this. As much as I can’t wait for this album, it will be incredibly difficult for me hear for the first time, knowing this is the bittersweet “goodbye” to the band I have loved since I was a child. Thank you to The Cranberries for finding the strength to complete and release this final album. What a fantastic opportunity for everyone that loved Dolores to share this last experience together, in rememberence, and in honor of a woman, that meant so much to so many.

    Awe beautiful cover amazing love it, reading the message made me cry! Oh gosh thanks for everything you guys. I will treasure everything! Being a fan since I was 13 in 1993 and been devoted and fell in love with the cranberries. I will always remember Dolores and Fergal, Mike & Noel. You guys have had a truly unique chemistry as a band and a sound all your own

    From the couch to this, it’s a lovely tribute. I got sad when I read the line in their statement about realizing Dolores will never sing the new songs live.
