The Cranberries just changed their cover on socials and website with a new artwork dedicated to the “25th Anniversary Edition” to be released on 19 October 2018.
they also published a short video teaser:
Indeed, disc 2 will be featuring:
– probably already known b-sides versions released on the Complete Sessions 1991-1993 (tracks 5-10)
– Uncertain EP (tracks 11-14)
– Dreams unmixed demo (track 15)
– Dreams pop mixed demo (track 21)
– “early demos” that seem to be those featured on the Water Circle tape (16-20) though Shine Down wasn’t on the tape, which means these could be unknown demos!
Unfortunately, no info yet as per this Íosa version which is featured on the “studio/demo” CD so fingers crossed this hopefully shouldn’t be one of the known live versions.
As for disc 3, it looks that it will indeed feature the live recording of the band’s July 31st 1994 performance at Féile festival.
Although disc 4 no longer appears on the page, it’s pretty clear to us it will feature the following radio shows : 1991 Dave Fanning Show (1-4), 1992 John Peel Show (5-8), 1993 Dave Fanning Show (9-12)
2 rarities posted on YouTube by Luis Hernández,
courtesy of Alex Verveboy. Dolores O’Riordan interviewed at the Irish TV show “The Late Late Show” in 1999 and 2001.
Quality is pretty good for both videos.
The Late Late Show – RTÉ – 1999
The Late Late Show – RTÉ – 2001
A nice video featuring some members of Dolores’ family was posted today on limerickleader.ie in the article called “WATCH: Emotional scenes as Liam MacCarthy cup pays visit to Dolores O’Riordan’s family home”
No way to embed the video here so you have to click the link above to watch it directly on the Limerick Leader’s website.
Out of the blue, the demo version of the still unreleased song “Croatia” recently surfaced on the internet. It was posted on YouTube on the ‘Cranberries Music Video Edits’ channel.
Please note the images in this video are nothing official, obviously, and only the audio part really counts.
As you may know, the song is actually a Dolores O’Riordan solo song (AYL era) not The Cranberries.
Thanks for this gem!
More than 7 months after the passing of Dolores, tributes all over the world continue. We can’t review them all as they are too many, however let’s note 3 interesting ones which just happened these last few days:
The first tribute is currently hanging proudly at Connolly’s Cross, Co.Limerick. It was made by the art school ‘Class Art Studio’ from Ballyadam, Pallasgreen, Co Limerick. Over 30 children worked on different parts of the mural, each painting an individual butterfly inspired by The Cranberries song “Just My Imagination”.
More photos on the Class Art Studio’s Facebook.
Second tribute to notice concerns a band called ‘whenyoung’ who covered “Dreams” to pay their respect to a band who inspired them. The band members grew up in Limerick too…
The song is now available on Spotify and you can watch below the video posted on Vevo/YouTube:
The 3rd interesting tribute just happened a few hours ago on the Irish TV channel RTÉ One where the national school choir from Moyross, The Corpus Christi School Choir, performed “Dreams” in a show called ‘Up For The Match’ ahead of this Sunday’s All Ireland Final.
The performance was just posted on YouTube:
As you may remember the album “Something Else” will be reissued on green vinyl in 2 days (August 3rd) and today the first images of the sealed front cover with its sticker appeared on the internet on Instagram here and here. No image of the green vinyl itself for now but it should appear pretty soon. You can still pre-order the album now as this limited edition colored vinyl is not yet sold out. It’s available almost everywhere, for example on Amazon.com
UPDATE – AUGUST 2
Pretty soon indeed! Here comes the first photo of the green vinyl. Thanks to Instagram user patric_sea and to Isaac for the link.

The first images of the limited edition “No Need To Argue” blue vinyl just appeared on the internet (on eBay). This is a new color made by Runt and now in stock and available on their website for $29.98
Not to be confused with the Clear & Blue version already released a few months ago.
It seems that this version replaces the Pink & Orange one supposed to be released on May 4, 2018 and which never saw the light. Indeed the old Pink & Orange page now displays this Blue vinyl.
The Hogan brothers spotted last Friday (13 July) at “Live at the Marquee” in Cork with The Coronas frontman Danny O’Reilly. This was shared today by the 4th man on the photo and Instagram user banogueman, Willie Ryan as known as The Owl.

Two days ago the Catholic Voluntary Secondary School for girls Laurel Hill Coláiste FCJ based in Limerick published on Facebook a photo of a bench they unveiled last week as a tribute to their former pupil Dolores O’ Riordan.
Our Comhairle na nDaltaí unveiled a bench in memory of our past pupil Dolores O’Riordan last week. It is placed in our 6th year garden with lyrics of her music to provide inspiration for years to come. Míle buíochas for such a beautiful and fitting tribute.
The bench features three lines in Gaeilge and English: a quote from the song “Ordinary Day” along with Dolores O’ Riordan’s name written in Irish as the school is a school where Irish is the medium of instruction.
1971 DOLORES NI RIORDAIN 2018
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF ALONG THE WAY
LIVING THROUGH THE SPIRIT OF YOUR DREAMS
We do not know yet whether the bench is in a private space reserved for students or if it’s accessible to all who’d like to come and visit. A great tribute, for sure!
Yesterday, websites like elusivedisc.com, indievinylden.com, musictap.com and many more published information about a green colored vinyl 2 LP Set of The Cranberries album “Something Else”. The limited edition vinyl will be released by BMG on 3 August 2018 and you can already preorder it now. Price is more or less $29, depending on websites.
Also available on Amazon.com
As you may know, the first (standard) edition of “Something Else” on vinyl has been sold out for months.
