It looks like the album “Something Else” will be reissued on black vinyl on the 22 November 2019. However it’s quite difficult to know the exact release date as many websites are not all saying the same. Some are announcing the 22 November 2019 as a pre-order or release date:
When a few others are announcing the 29 May 2020:
There is even one eBay seller announcing the release for the 29 November 2019.
So who is right?
To be continued…. (READ UPDATE FROM 17 JANUARY 2020)

Out of the blue and just on time for Christmas, the songs “Analyse – Christmas at the Vatican” and “Panis Angelicus – Christmas at the Vatican” both recorded live on the 15 December 2001 at the 9° Concerto di Natale in Vaticano were released as singles a few days ago, on the 24 October 2019, on almost all streaming platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, Google Play…)
Not available on iTunes/Apple Music (yet?)
Both songs were already released last year (26 October 2018), “Analyse” on the album “A Very Merry Christmas”
and “Panis Angelicus” on 2 different albums, “Christmas at the Vatican” and “The Perfect Christmas”.
It looks like there is no physical releases for all these singles and albums, they are only available to stream or download.
Thanks to Dan Steward for the info.
EDIT: Also available on a few platforms (Google Play for instance), the album “A Joyful Christmas” released last year on 25 October 2018 which includes the songs “Analyse” and “Little Drummer Boy” still from the same Vatican show in 2001. “Analyse” being credited to Dolores O’Riordan and “Little Drummer Boy” to The Cranberries (!?)
