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.

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.
The Cranberries shared on Instagram a photo of the test pressing of the new album “In The End”. A vinyl version will definitely be available! The album is to be released probably in Spring 2019. The exact date is not known yet. Hopefully soon…
Another calendar featuring Dolores O’Riordan is available, this time from Mexico. You can order it now by clicking this link. Price: $59 MXN (approx. $3 US) Size: 21 x 27.5 (cm)
“Calendarock 2019” displays rock star drawings by cartoonist José Hernández in collaboration with Revista El Chamuco. Calendar includes all year 2019 plus the months October, November and December 2018.
Below a few close ups, no need to name the rock stars, you should easily recognize them all. Unfortunately there is no close up of Dolores yet!
Thanks to Miguel Hernández via Cranberries Mexico for the info.
Yesterday The Cranberries posted on Instagram a photo of their invitation to the “Conferring of an Honorary Degree of The University of Limerick on The Cranberries”. The band didn’t give any other info at the time, such as the date of the ceremony nor if this was going be a public event or not…etc.
Some fans then commented it could be an Honorary Doctorate.
The ceremony will take place on Friday 18 January to honor all band members. Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler and Mike Hogan will receive honorary doctorates while a posthumous award will be made to the family of the late Dolores O’Riordan.
The University of Limerick awards honorary doctorates to “individuals who have shown outstanding achievement, nationally or internationally, in the arts, sciences, business, industry, the professions, sport, social service or public service.”
It looks like ceremonies at the Limerick University are reserved to invited guests only, and that dress code applies. All details can be found on the “general information for invited guests” page of the UL’s website.
For those who are not invited to attend, the UL ceremonies seem to be live streamed on this link. For now, there’s no information whether the ceremony in which The Cranberries are part will be available for watching or not.
Our team just had a look at the French SACEM website (French professional association collecting payments of artists’ rights and distributing the rights to the original songwriters, composers, and music publishers) where the song titles unveiled yesterday by Itzik are indeed all listed, which confirms that these songs will indeed feature on the band’s upcoming album In The End!
See screenshots below:
Interestingly, when browsing the To The Faithful Departed era on the SACEM website, we also noticed a song we had never heard of before: “Angel” !!!
A fan called Itzik just posted the below message on our website, revealing the possible “In The End” album tracklist in no particular order (as we already know from a recent Noel Hogan interview that In The End is to be the last song of the album)
The following is a list (in no particular order) of 11 newly registered song titles for the new album.
Please keep in mind that not all might end up on the album and some could be just working titles.
All Over Now (O’Riordan/Hogan)
A Place I Know (O’Riordan/Hogan)
Crazy Heart (O’Riordan/Hogan)
The Pressure (O’Riordan/Hogan)
In The End (O’Riordan/Hogan)
Summer Song (O’Riordan/Brodbeck)
Wake Me When It’s Over (O’Riordan)
Catch Me If You Can (O’Riordan)
Got It (O’Riordan)
BMG are still planning an “early 2019” release.
Happy new year everyone!!
IMPORTANT: We do not yet know what his source is, nor if this is official or not, although it is very likely these information may have leaked on the Internet in the past hours.
More soon as we’re investigating, and a major thank you to Itzik for his comment.
UPDATE – JANUARY 3
Although the source hasn’t yet been revealed, we are inclined to think this tracklist is definitely real as Dan Brodbeck was indeed writing a song with Dolores shortly before she passed as confirmed in his January 2018 CBC interview.
Moreover, the track Illusion does ring a bell as a demo song sharing the same name was accidentally uploaded onto JETLAG.NYC’s Soundcloud account in November 2017…
As Ireland just entered 2019 a few minutes ago, The Cranberries official website updated their home page to reveal what should be an artwork linked to the release of their upcoming – and last – album “In The End”, due in 2019.
If the exact release date isn’t known to this date, BMG is likely to release the album in Spring as September/October might be devoted to the 25th anniversary of the No Need To Argue album.

The CW Team would like to use the occasion to send our fellow grieving fans our best wishes, hoping that this new year will bring everyone peace and closure.
