“The Essential Cranberries” 3CD boxset by Spectrum

April 20, 2021  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

A new 3CD boxset to be released by Spectrum (the record label who already released Dreams The Collection) and titled “The Essential Cranberries” or “Essential Cranberries” or maybe just “Essentials” has been spotted on Amazon.co.ukwowhd.co.uk and merchbar.com recently.

According to Amazon, it is to be released on 30 April 2021 and according to other websites it is to be released on 7 May 2021. There is no tracklist information for now and artwork might be very uncertain as already seen before (for example on 606Musix).

Even though the 30th of April is the exact release date of the album “To The Faithful Departed”, this boxset has probably nothing to do with a 25th Anniversary Edition!

Special thanks to Dan for the links.


UPDATE – MAY 10

Nothing was released on May 7th.
Could be the usual mistake due to the American style of writing dates, which could mean to be released on July 5th!

The “Zombie” Music Video has hit another 100 Million views exactly a year after getting 1 billion views on YouTube. 100 Million views a year looks like its cruising speed!

iTunes made the song available for 69 cents. As a result, it got back on Billboard charts, not just arriving at its peak position on the hot alternative songs charts (#13) on 9 April 2021,

but hitting another #1 milestone (alternative digital sales charts), still on 9 April 2021.
Awesome!

“Stars” vinyl to be available in different countries on RSD21

April 8, 2021  |  Comments Off on “Stars” vinyl to be available in different countries on RSD21  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

It seems that the STARS 2LP (transparent vinyl) will be available in many other countries than the UK as part of the Record Store Day 2021 second drop, due on July 17th.

Release was announced yesterday on:
– French “Disquaire Day” website here
– German “Record Store Day” website here
– “Record Store Day Ireland” website here
– “Record Store Day Italia” website here
– “Record Store Day NL” website here (apparently available in Belgium too)
– “Record Store Day w Polsce” website here
– Spanish “Record Store Day” website here

Let’s note German website features a negative version of the cover artwork when all other websites are showing the regular artwork; maybe just a mistake:

No sign of the release yet on the Australian, Canadian, Japanese and US Record Store Day websites.
We’ll keep you updated if this appears in the upcoming hours.

“Stars (Best of)” to be released on vinyl for Record Store Day UK

April 6, 2021  |  Comments Off on “Stars (Best of)” to be released on vinyl for Record Store Day UK  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

As announced today on the Record Story Day UK website, The Cranberries will be releasing a limited edition vinyl of their best of Stars to raise money for War Child:

The Cranberries – Stars: the best of 92-02 – UK stores only
Following on from the reissues of ‘Everybody Else is Doing it… ‘ and ‘No Need to Argue’ – and 30 years after their debut release – UMC are proud to issue for the first time on vinyl a special transparent edition of the band’s greatest-hits collection ‘Stars: The Best of 1992–2002’. The Cranberries rose to international fame in the 1990s with global smashes such as ‘Zombie’, ‘Dreams’ and ‘Linger’ – collected here alongside tracks from their five albums for Island – plus two tracks unavailable on other albums ‘New New York’ and ‘Stars’.

This vinyl shall only be available on the shelves of participating independent record shops on 17th July 2021 as part of the second Record Store Day UK Drop event.

Speaking on their involvement in the campaign, Fergal Lawler of The Cranberries said, “We are very honoured that Universal have chosen Stars as a special Vinyl release for Record Store Day.  The proceeds from sales are going to the War Child foundation, a charity that do incredible work to help vulnerable children in war-torn countries.”

Indeed the Record Store Day website recalls that, “War Child UK is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. They work to support children through their recovery – keeping them safe, helping them learn and cope with their experiences, as well as equipping them with skills for the future. They also campaign for changes to policies and practices to support children in conflict, working with children and young people themselves to demand their rights.
