Read Noel Hogan’s new interview (in Polish) on muzyka.interia.pl or click image below to open pdf file.
“The Pressure” should be the 2nd single off the album “In The End” (track #10) and should be officially released tomorrow (March 1st) starting at midnight on streaming platforms.
Well… right now, it’s already tomorrow in Australia, the song has started to spread the internet (so it’s not a leak) and lyrics have already appeared on genius.com
EDIT: Now midnight in most European cities, March 1st, “The Pressure” just appeared on streaming platforms, Deezer, Spotify, iTunes/Apple Music etc…
Also available on YouTube (US viewers may have to wait until midnight tho):
UPDATE – MARCH 1 – 08:00 AM (UTC)
Noel Hogan just posted on Instagram to inform that “The Pressure” is NOT the second single but a new track they “wanted to share”.
Second single should thus be “Wake Me When It’s Over” as stated in the Radio Regenbogen interview posted yesterday on YouTube.
He also replied to 1tipsy that All Over Now’s video should be available next week.
Unfortunately the guys don’t give any details like name of the shows in which they appear and/or broadcast dates. Anyway, thanks to The Cranberries Newspaper on Facebook, here below the video of their interview for Radio Regenbogen posted on YouTube by RegenbogenDE:

Inside the article, a fake poster and a very rare never seen before flyer and artwork from “The Cranbery Saw Us” (Cranbery misspelled with only one ‘R’) at The Oasis Club in Limerick on 23 February 1990.
The Cranberries appearing in the next issue of Sound On Sound magazine, March 2019.

Dolores O’Riordan was inducted in the Limerick Hall Of Fame during the “Limerick Person of the Year 2018” gala award ceremony that was held at the Clayton Hotel in Limerick this afternoon.
The “Limerick Person of the Year 2018” appears to be a different event from the “Limerick’s All Time Great” competition that Dolores O’Riordan won by a massive margin just a few days ago.
This gala award aims at honoring an individual or group of individuals who best exemplified the spirit of Limerick in 2018, so today, Limerick Hurlers were named “Limerick Persons of the Year 2018” and members of the team received the award.
Members of Dolores’ family also took part in the ceremony as details of a new Limerick Hall of Fame that is being established were also announced during the event, with the late Cranberries lead singer being the first inductee. Dolores’ mother Eileen was also presented with a special framed Limerick Leader newspaper article to mark the announcement according to the article posted after the ceremony.
Limerick Leader’s journalist Áine Fitzgerald posted a few photos of the ceremony on Twitter this afternoon, including a pic of the Hurlers with Dolores’ family, giving the song “Dreams” was the anthem of the team:
Tweet #1 – Dolores inducted in the LHOF
Tweet #2 – Limerick Hurlers
Tweet #3 – with Mayor James Collins and Dolores’ family, Eileen, PJ, Sandra O’Riordan
Tweet #4 – Special framed LL newspaper article
Special thanks to Elena Legaspi for the link!
Title says it all. Dolores wins easily. Congratulations!
Thanks to The Cranberries community and all the others who voted for her. Well deserved.
The Limerick Leader should say more about it pretty soon…
UPDATE – FEBRUARY 19
The Limerick Leader just published an article to confirm Dolores O’Riordan has been named “Limerick’s All Time Great”.
“Dolores is an exceptionally worthy winner of Limerick’s All Time Great,” said Eugene Phelan, editor of the Limerick Leader. “She is an iconic figure in world music but never forget her Limerick roots and her love for her native place. We are proud that she has been named the All Time Great after an exceptionally popular series of online polls. All 16 candidates would have made for a worthy winner, but there can only be one!”
Oldie but goldie!
This is a very rare CD-R containing demo/early versions of songs that would appear on “AYL?”
Some fans might not have heard them all before… and for the others it’s probably been a while!
Let’s note that the demo version of “Without You” never really surfaced before and the title “Apple Of My Life” on this CD-R became “Apple Of My Eye” on the “Are You Listening?” album. [EDIT: Fox Music probably made this CD-R to pass on to various music supervisors. Seems like a title transcribed too fast, just a mistake, as Dolores sings “eye” in this demo.]

A picture disc vinyl of “In The End” just appeared on Amazon UK.
To be released on 26 April 2019, it is already available for pre-order.
As you know the ceremony was live streamed on the UL’s website yesterday, the University also shared great photos live on their socials, as seen on Instagram
And they posted a video on YouTube
Media covered the event early in the evening, below just some of them:
The Cranberries of course appeared on yesterday evening’s Irish TV news:
…and this morning in the Irish papers, even on the front page for a few:
Yesterday The Cranberries were presented with an Honorary Doctorate of Letters. Fergal was unable to attend and his doctorate was accepted on his behalf by Mike. The mother of Dolores, Eileen O’Riordan, was presented with a posthumous Honorary Doctorate of Letters for Dolores O’Riordan.
Congratulations to the new Doctors!

Thanks to irishsoul for sharing
“In The End” just appeared on iTunes revealing tracklist order as well as duration of “All Over Now” (4:16)
Let’s note that the track “Crazy Heart” does not feature on the album unlike what we initially thought.
It seems iTunes (France and Italy) got the tracklist wrong as all other platforms (including The Cranberries official webstore) announced “Crazy Heart” as track #8 as well as a different tracklist order.
The Cranberries will be giving some interviews in the upcoming days, here below the programs where they should be making an appearance (UK & Ireland time):
- Monday 14 January: ITV – News at 10 – 10.00 PM
- Tuesday 15 January: BBC Radio 2 – 1.00 PM
- Tuesday 15 January: BBC One (TV) – The One Show – 7.00 PM
Big day today in the Cranberries world, the band just updated their official website cranberries.com as well as all their socials with the cover of their new – and last – studio album “In The End”, along with a long statement to explain the process of the album. No release date has been announced yet, hopefully soon… (possibly Spring 2019)
Also, to mark the first anniversary of Dolores’s passing, they will be releasing the first single “All Over Now” on the 15th of January.
In The End – album cover
You might recognize Noel’s son, Dylan, holding a guitar on the left, where his father is used to standing on stage. Although the other 3 kids are not yet known, we can imagine they are kids from Fergal, Mike and Dolores’ family.
EDIT: The little Emma is indeed the daughter of one of Dolores’ nieces and the name of little boy on the bass is William, son of Tommy O’Carroll and Kay O’Carroll. No more details about his link with Mike yet; family? or friend? or else?

UPDATE – MARCH 11th
More about the kids on the cover…
Emma, alias Dolores O’Riordan, is the daughter of Elaine O’Riordan. Elaine is one of Dolores’ nieces and is the little girl with Dolores in the majestic horse and cart on Dolores’ wedding day.

Dylan Hogan, alias Noel Hogan, is Noel’s son. To illustrate, a photo from Noel’s private Instagram account (the one and only time).
24 November 2018 – Father and son, Noel and Dylan Hogan
William O’Carroll, alias Mike Hogan, is Mike’s nephew. Remember the name of Mike’s wife, Siobhan O’Carroll (Thanks to Mat in the comments below). On 18 January 2019, the Meelick National School posted a great photo on Facebook.
18 January 2019 at school – William O’Carroll
In the role of Fergal Lawler, the name of the little boy is still unknown and the only detail that surfaced yet is that he is Fergal’s nephew.
The Cranberries shared on Instagram a photo of the test pressing of the new album “In The End”. A vinyl version will definitely be available! The album is to be released probably in Spring 2019. The exact date is not known yet. Hopefully soon…
