VIDEO: Coronavirus version of “Linger”

March 16, 2020  |  3 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

Nice and very appropriate video with rewritten lyrics shared on Twitter today by Roisin Ingle:

we wish, wish we could return
wishing never had to learn
words like COVID-19
coronavirus you’re so mean
you are tearing us apart
ruining everything

 

and yet though this time is strange
so much to rearrange
we’ll keep washing our hands
all we can do is stand
together while apart
it’s not a game to us
and we’re in so deep
we sacrifice to keep us safe
social distance in our fingers a-a-ah
we don’t want to let it linger
we don’t want to
we don’t want to
we don’t want to let it linger

 

oh from Wuhan to Milan
something really has gone wrong
we’re singing songs
singing songs

 

if we, if at home we stay
close pubs self isolate
socializing at home
call loved ones on the phone
avert your patrick’s day
it’s a tiny price to pay
and we will prevail
we’ll keep our precious people safe
the strong is standing for the weakest
we can make sure it won’t linger
we have to
we have to
we cannot let it linger

RTÉ PLAYER: “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas”

January 18, 2020  |  Comments Off on RTÉ PLAYER: “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas”  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

For those living in Ireland exclusively, you still have 8 days on the RTÉ Player to watch the replay of “The Making Of Angela’s Christmas” that was broadcast on RTÉ 2 on Friday 27 December 2019.

The 26 min. documentary includes a part dedicated to the recording of the song “Angela’s Christmas” and there is even an interview with Olé Koretsky recorded after Dolores’s passing.

For those who are not in Ireland these days the link won’t work and will return an error message:

…so your only way to watch it is to grab the official “Angela’s Christmas” DVD released last November in the US where the documentary is part of the special features (DVD Bonus).

“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…


UPDATE – JANUARY 30

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.


UPDATE – JANUARY 31

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…
