“Something Else” purple vinyl edition to be released soon (UPDATED 2x)

January 17, 2020  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Some more information about the “Something Else” vinyl that was supposed to be reissued on 22 November 2019 and which was delayed to 29 November 2019, then to 29 May 2020, then to further announcement.

For now information is still very confusing as some stores are announcing a new release date on the 31 of January 2020 (like Amazon USA) when some others are still announcing the double vinyl to be released in May. Even Amazon is not saying the same depending on your country!

More importantly, the new release would in fact be a purple vinyl edition! Some record stores already received their copies and put them on sale straight away (like spellboundrecords in New Zealand) and now the very first images have started to surface as you can see below:

So check directly with your record store(s) as no one is saying the same at the moment, whether it is about the release date, the color, or the price…


The vinyl is now in stores:

However it seems that a few people who ordered their copy in UK received an email to cancel and refund or choose another item. According to the email, the vinyl was just meant to be sold on The Cranberries own webstore, which is still not the case at this very moment. Weird!

Thanks to Dan for the info.


Like in UK, the release was cancelled in Germany.
Amazon US says it’s been delayed rather than cancelled but it’s not available at the moment and it was supposed to be shipped today.

For now New Zealand and France seem to be the only places it’s been released. Will the vinyl finally appear on the band’s webstore like the above email says?

This is definitely one of the most frustrating releases for fans. To be continued…

    Now I can’t hear this album completely. I’m not prepared yet.

    they also cancelled my order. I don’t understand why the band does not communicate on this. Do they only know there is a new release??? What a big mess.
