“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 known, we can imagine they are kids from Fergal, Mike and Dolores’ family.
[EDIT: The little Emmal is indeed the daughter of one of Dolores’ nieces. 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?]

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…
Another calendar featuring Dolores O’Riordan is available, this time from Mexico. You can order it now by clicking this link. Price: $59 MXN (approx. $3 US) Size: 21 x 27.5 (cm)
“Calendarock 2019” displays rock star drawings by cartoonist José Hernández in collaboration with Revista El Chamuco. Calendar includes all year 2019 plus the months October, November and December 2018.
Below a few close ups, no need to name the rock stars, you should easily recognize them all. Unfortunately there is no close up of Dolores yet!
Thanks to Miguel Hernández via Cranberries Mexico for the info.
Yesterday The Cranberries posted on Instagram a photo of their invitation to the “Conferring of an Honorary Degree of The University of Limerick on The Cranberries”. The band didn’t give any other info at the time, such as the date of the ceremony nor if this was going be a public event or not…etc.
Some fans then commented it could be an Honorary Doctorate.
The ceremony will take place on Friday 18 January to honor all band members. Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler and Mike Hogan will receive honorary doctorates while a posthumous award will be made to the family of the late Dolores O’Riordan.
The University of Limerick awards honorary doctorates to “individuals who have shown outstanding achievement, nationally or internationally, in the arts, sciences, business, industry, the professions, sport, social service or public service.”
It looks like ceremonies at the Limerick University are reserved to invited guests only, and that dress code applies. All details can be found on the “general information for invited guests” page of the UL’s website.
For those who are not invited to attend, the UL ceremonies seem to be live streamed on this link. For now, there’s no information whether the ceremony in which The Cranberries are part will be available for watching or not.
As Ireland just entered 2019 a few minutes ago, The Cranberries official website updated their home page to reveal what should be an artwork linked to the release of their upcoming – and last – album “In The End”, due in 2019.
If the exact release date isn’t known to this date, BMG is likely to release the album in Spring as September/October might be devoted to the 25th anniversary of the No Need To Argue album.

The CW Team would like to use the occasion to send our fellow grieving fans our best wishes, hoping that this new year will bring everyone peace and closure.
The Swans Bar located in Ballybricken, Limerick, Ireland posted yesterday on Facebook a small message to remember “all our loved ones who are no longer with us”… and especially the most iconic one, Dolores. With the message, there is a photo of her performing in the bar. Actually the post includes 2 photos to show the photo hanging on their wall near the Christmas tree.
There is no details about the exact date or even the year. Obviously this was not part of a show nor a showcase nor anything related to Dolores’ job. The bar being located just a few blocks from where most of her family is living, she was probably just singing for local friends and for fun.
Thanks to Dolores O’Riordan Spain for noticing and sharing.
Tomorrow on Irish TV RTÉ One at 6.20pm (Irish time), the series “Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” will include the late Dolores O’Riordan in a Christmas Special. The show dives into the RTÉ archives to rebroadcast some of the very best musical performances over the years.
St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir accompanied by the James Last Orchestra, The Corrs, Colm Wilkinson, Jerry Lee Lewis, the late Dolores O’Riordan and Bring Crosby in conversation with reporter Aine O’Conor in Dublin in 1976 are expected on tomorrow’s show. Monday 24 December 2018. Duration: 60 minutes.
Don’t forget to record and share!
And for those outside of Ireland you can watch RTÉ One by clicking this link.
The show rebroadcast a small part of the “Kenny Live” show from December 1993. It was quite easy to guess as that particular “Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” was a Christmas Special and the performance at Kenny Live back in 1993 was recorded a few days before Xmas near a Xmas tree in the TV studio.
Only a small part of the interview and an edited version of Linger were rebroadcast. Unfortunately The Cranberries performance was the very last of the D’Telly show which implies end credits on it 🙁
Also, the image was upscaled to 16:9 instead of the original 4:3 format.
Definitely not the most interesting rebroadcast especially as most of the fans already had the complete appearance in pretty good quality. A small improvement though!
And for those who don’t have it, the original version is still available on YouTube:
“Rapturous Reception For The Cranberries 1993″
Following a hugely successful American tour supporting Duran Duran, The Cranberries return to Limerick and receive a Mayoral reception.

On the Cranberries Italia Facebook group, Niall Quinn wrote, “That’s my dad Dolores is talking to at 0.37”
(Actually… the guy receiving an autograph, how cool!)
