“Angela’s Song” long version now available (UPDATED)

December 1, 2018  |  6 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Thanks to YouTube user Alfonso MartzG who shared the long version (2:30) of “Angela’s Song”. The guy does not mention the source but the animated short film was released yesterday on Netflix so…

Rest with me
We’ll be warm and free to dream
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

Stay with me
Forget the cold streets of Limerick city
Let’s drift away and sing our song
And dream on and on

Lay with me
Let us sing a sweet melody
Of all the things yet to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one

Look up high and see
All the stars above you and me
They shine a light on all the things to come
For you my little one


UPDATE – 4:55 PM (UTC)

Source is indeed Netflix. Compared to the RTÉ’s broadcast in 2017, the end credits are now scrolling slowly and we can hear the full version of the song (or more likely, this is the normal speed and RTÉ had deliberately broadcast a speed up version). Anyway this is a Netflix exclusive!

Mayoral reception in honor of Limerick’s unsung heroes in music

November 29, 2018  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

On Thursday 22 November 2018, John Hennessy, Ber Angley, Máire Keary-Scanlon and Shane Curtin were honored by the city of Limerick for their contribution to the musical landscape of the city. People from the music community came out in support at the mayoral reception at City Hall and Noel Hogan was one of them.

Full details in the article “Limerick recognises its unsung heroes in music” published on limerickpost.ie

The Cranberries are mentioned in the part concerning Ber Angley, who is synonymous with events at University of Limerick since the 1980s:

Professor Eoin Devereux spoke about Ber’s achievements.
“He had the capacity to imagine and dream and say ‘why can’t we do things like this?’.”
Ber also played a part in getting Limerick’s most successful music export signed to a major label. He played a very significant role in the history of the band, booking them for The Stables Bar and rostered them on national tours of the colleges in their early days.
Ber booked The Cranberries for a Rag Week gig at The Jetland on Ennis Road. (where Dunnes Stores / Woodies is now).
Prof Devereux told the audience, “There were 32 A&R men from the record industry hoping to sign The Cranberries.
At that gig a man called Denny Cordell of Island Records made a deal with The Cranberries. It was a historic night in the history of the band that went to global success.”

The day after, Ber Angley published on Twitter a photo of his award and a ‘thanks everyone’ message:

Dolores #1 female artist in alternative songs chart’s History

October 11, 2018  |  No Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Dolores O’Riordan literally rules the Billboard chart’s History as top female artist in the alternative songs chart according to the article published earlier today on billboard.com

The Cranberries frontwoman counts 8 entries in the chart (Linger, Dreams, Zombie, Ode To My Family, Ridiculous Thoughts, Salvation, Free To Decide, Promises) including a pair of number 1s. Brilliant!

Thanks to ‘The Cranberries Newspaper’ on Facebook for finding the article.

“Shine Down” demo premiering now exclusively on billboard.com (UPDATED)

October 11, 2018  |  4 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Billboard.com just published a new interview with Noel Hogan featuring the track “Shine Down” that should be the “Nothing Left At All” cassette version of the song that we know (impossible to tell as their player does not seem to be working at the moment).

Noel interestingly mentions that he hopes the other Cranberries albums will be given the same anniversary treatment as Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We. However he notes that it “would be harder to find (bonus) things because with (Everybody Else…) we had all the years of build-up for us to get to that point, a lot of stuff between demos and gigs and things that we were able to include. The problem going forward is that album came out and became very successful, so everything we did after that was released or used straightaway. To find rarities may be a bit of a struggle — though I could be wrong. Things could pop up that I may have forgotten about“.

Definitely something fans should be able to help with 😉

Noel also confirms that the final Cranberries album, In The End, should be “very emotional, because of all the things that were going on in Dolores’ life“, and reasserts that “she was psyched about doing the album“, which makes “her death” something “very, very unfair” as “she was very, very positive” : “when she started writing this album it was all very positive and she couldn’t wait to get into the studio or back on the road again“, especially as the band was planning to tour in China in March.

“There’s a song called IN THE END” – interview on rollingstone.com

October 9, 2018  |  9 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Ahead of the 25th-anniversary reissue of EEIDI, rollingstone.com just published a new interview with guitarist Noel Hogan. He discusses the band’s early days as well as the upcoming final album with Dolores O’Riordan, “IN THE END” to be released early next year.

So there’s a song called “In the End,” it’s the last song on the album, and it just kind of summed up the whole album and the band. Because it’s definitely the end of it for us. So we’ve called it that. In the End. – Noel Hogan
