It seems that a new limited turquoise colored version of the NNTA vinyl is going to be released on October 20th by Plain. Limited edition: 1000 units.
Price is $29.98 which is exactly the same price as the other colored versions already released by the label before.
Great and interesting work done by lipecran concerning 3 (now 6) Cranberries videos. Thanks to him and The Cranberries Brasil.
First the comparison between all 3 versions of “Dreams” on the same screen. The Cranberries Brasil note: “At the top of the screen, the first version, from 1992. Below, to the left, the second version of 1993, and to the right, the third, filmed between 27 and 29 January 1994 in Dublin, Ireland. Although some other videos of the band also have other versions, dreams is the only one with completely different versions of each other.”
Secondly, in the same style, the comparison between all 3 versions of “Zombie”. Some people only knew the existence of 2!! It seems this one just been censored for copyright reasons… The Cranberries Brasil note:“On the top of the screen, is the most common version, with the song in full length (“No Need To Argue” album). Under it, at left, the version known as “UK Limited Edition” surfaced in early 2000’s and at right the “Alternate”, released in 2009 at VEVO channel of the band. These other two versions have the same lenght, so at some point, the screen will show only the common version, during the missing sound part of these other versions. The common and Alternate versions are very similar while the “UK” shows a lot of differences.”
And last the complete and quite rare alternative version of “Free To Decide”. Brilliant!
Now the comparison between both versions of “Free To Decide”
…and between both versions of “Ridiculous Thoughts”. Great job guys!
One more, “When You’re Gone”
And last, “I Can’t Be With You” and “Zombie” censored on YouTube and reuploaded on Vimeo.
A fan just sent us the picture below off a german magazine called “Petra” dated from 1999. Same photo session, almost the same pose. The session then can’t be from the year 2000 and was probably from early 1999.

June 20, 2017 | Comments Off on “Love Letters From Limerick” featuring a new track by Fergal | by Axl | The Cranberries
“Love Letters from Limerick” is a short film (approximately 4 min. long) which was shown at the LIT presentation last Friday where the “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” giant sign was donated and unveiled. It showcases the creation of this inspiring project.
The film is now available on Vimeo and features a new track by Fergal Lawler simply called “Love Letters”
And as Tom Collins says about the sign: “I love where it is now, it’s on a great blue wall, it looks like a big cloud on a blue wall, it’s a happy cloud”
Everybody Else is Doing It So Why Can’t We?
Texas based sign painter and illustrator Sean Starr collaborated with Limerick sign painter Tom Collins to create a 10ft high 15ft wide hand painted sign placing the title of The Cranberries debut album centre stage on a large cloud. This video showcases the creation of the sign and its installation in a permanent home where it’s elevating message can inspire future generations. Featuring a new track by Fergal Lawler of The Cranberries.
For those who wanted to see the giant sign “Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” in the streets of Limerick it’s too late! The sign has now moved and found a new home at the Limerick Institute of Technology also known as LIT.
Last Friday, June 16 at 4pm, there was a special presentation/ceremony with special guests Tom Collins (the local artist who created the sign) and a famous drummer named Fergal Lawler to unveil what has become the new sign on LIT’s campus.
