Noel Hogan was asked by director Garret Price to work on the soundtrack for his new documentary about Woodstock 99 and the (not so well known outside of US) chaos that ensued.
Note: The Cranberries didn’t play the festival that year, only in 1994.
The film will arrive on HBO Max streaming service July 23rd in the US.
The website launched in December 2020 now includes a lot of different sections.
On the links section, some readers may have noticed a brand new project called between two and its soon to come website (https://betweentwoofficial.com)
“When You’re Gone” by Pillow Queens is the first single from the forthcoming tribute album “Salvation” inspired by The Cranberries for Pieta. The song was released today and is available on all streaming platforms now.
Pillow Queens will be performing the song on “The Late Late Show” tonight from 9:35pm on RTÉ One (Irish TV).

The “Salvation” album is set for release 1st October 2021, full track listing as follows:
- Sinead O’Connor – No Need To Argue
- Irish Women in Harmony – Dreams
- Pillow Queens – When You’re Gone
- Moncrieff – Free To Decide
- Wyvern Lingo – Salvation
- Aimée – Linger
- Walking On Cars – Promises
- Kodaline with the RTE Orchestra featuring Noel Hogan – Zombie (Live)
- The Cranberries – Chocolate Brown (Recorded Live for 2FM)
- Kitt Philippa – Twenty One
- Roe – I Can’t Be With You
- True Tides – Ode To My Family
- Kellie Lewis – Ridiculous Thoughts
You may note that “Dreams” by Irish Women In Harmony and “Zombie” by Kodaline+Noel+Orchestra were already known and released a few time ago and could be considered in fact as the real 1st singles of the album!
Two more things to notice, the album includes an unreleased Cranberries recording “Chocolate Brown” live for 2FM, and singer Lyra (who performed “Zombie” on “The Late Late Show” as tribute to Dolores last January) is not featured on the album.
CD and limited edition yellow vinyl are available to pre-order today (more or less €9.99 and €19.99). See your local shops for more details.
A rare and unique “Stars” test pressing signed by the remaining band members plus Dolores’ mother (!?) will be auctioned tomorrow for the White Label Auction in aid of The BRiT Trust.

UPDATE – MAY 5
Sold for £400 (+28% inc. VAT)
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.uk, wowhd.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!
To be continued…
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,
Thanks to Seamus and Benjamin Alexander for the info and screenshots!
A new Italian book has been released this week.
“Dolores O’Riordan & The Cranberries – Parole Di Una Star Riluttante. Testi Commentati”
The book recently appeared on Amazon and eBay. 287 pages published by Arcana, format 15×21 (cm). Not much information for now, the book could be a kind of song by song analysis.
Thanks to Dominic Taylor for sharing today on Facebook group Revival Press this never seen before gem/photo of poet Mike MacDomhnaill with Dolores and 2 other students on their last day at school.
The other 2 girls could be Dolores’ school friends Rachel Real on the right and Anne Marie Cunningham on the left, thanks to Thérèse Hunt on Facebook. (Re)read the interview from February 2019 with Rachel Real.
As announced earlier, Cork singer Lyra performed quite a stunning version of “Zombie” on “The Late Late Show” tonight as tribute to Dolores O’Riordan.
Ryan Tubridy, the host of the show, said the new album “Salvation” is expected to be released later this year with all profits going to Pieta Charity, confirmed the contribution of Sinead O’Connor, and unexpectedly announced that it would feature an unreleased recording from The Cranberries!!
The video is now available on YouTube
Special thanks to Kevin for the information, and for helping the CW team big time today!
On “The Late Late Show” tomorrow (RTÉ One – Irish TV), Cork singer Lyra will perform a musical tribute to The Cranberries lead singer on the third anniversary of her death. “Derry Girl” and Bridgeton star Nichola Coughlan has also been confirmed for the show.

“Women of Limerick” is a new mobile phone app to remember and celebrate women from Limerick’s History. It is available to download for free onto Android and Apple devices. The app obviously includes Dolores even if there’s not that much information yet.
This year will mark Dolores’ third anniversary as the world still faces the covid pandemic.
In this context, locals won’t be able to pay tribute to Dolores as they’ve now gotten used to on January 15th, mingling with fans travelling from abroad.
The organiser of 2019’s “Piano for Dolores” and 2020’s “In The End” remembrance events in Limerick has therefore partnered once again with the Limerick Arts Office and the Irish Arts Council to release a “Remember Dolores” podcast” on January 15th that will also be broadcast on the local radios.
The idea is to invite international fans and followers of The Cranberries and Dolores to share their memories, stories, poetries or songs and send these audio memories via messenger for these to be featured in the podcast, along with testimonies from local Limerick folks who witnessed the early days of the band.
For those of you who would like to contribute to this podcast, all information can be found on this link.
New interview with Noel published yesterday on theoaklandpress.com

Title says it all.
Hosted and maintained by DJL Technical Solutions – just like The Cranberries official website – they describe Noel’s website as, “Used mainly as a portal to his Social Media and a point of contact for potential production work, the website is straight to the point, with a simple yet effective black and yellow design.”
Congrats to winner Sam Dermody… as well as all the other artists who sent their amazing artworks.
Album to be released in 2021.
