“In The End” – Paris promo day 2

March 29, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Yesterday was the second promo day in Paris for the band. No public event this time!
Mike and Noel (without Fergal who was giving an interview to another media, see below) went to radio station RTL2 for “Le Drive RTL2”.

Then, still without Fergal, they talked to TV channel France 24. We haven’t yet found out if this video has been broadcast already or not, we’ll keep fans updated on this as soon as we shed light on this.
The Cranberries posted 6 photos both on their Facebook and Instagram accounts:

On his side, Fergal gave an interview to Nicky Beckett for Rock Art Fashion (rockartfashion.net), according to Nicky’s Instagram account. The interview should be published soon.

UPDATE:

The Cranberries may have recorded another show when they were at RTL2 yesterday. Radio host Stéphanie Renouvin posted this morning on Instagram a photo with Mike and Noel and, according to the hashtags, the show could be “Pop Rock Story”.
Again, we haven’t yet found out if the show was live broadcast or recorded for a later broadcast.

And last, still on Instagram, a photo posted yesterday by Pierre-Edouard Bellanca, who was the band’s interpreter:

A new week of promo: Dublin, Paris

March 27, 2019  |  No Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries are back on their promo tour. It started on Monday 25 in Dublin, on RTÉ Radio 1. No more information has leaked yet.

Today, the band was in Paris and gave interviews to the press, including radio station Europe 1 and TV Channel BFMTV, according to the following pics:

On the evening, they attended a Q&A with lucky winners for YouTubeMusic and Oui FM. 60 or so privileged fans got to listen to 3 new songs (Lost, Illusion, Crazy Heart) in an auditorium located 7 Rue Ballu in Paris.

For obvious reasons, mobile phones, cameras and any other kind of recorders were not allowed, and for now the only images of the event that surfaced were posted on the band’s Facebook as well as Noel and Mike’s Instagram accounts. Let’s note the band was not in the room while the audience was listening to the new songs, they only joined the crowd for the Q&A and answered questions for approximately 30 minutes.

Afterwards, fans were invited to a cold buffet and also had the opportunity to take a picture with the boys in front of a huge “In The End” artwork background. A very nice surprise for sure!

Noel wrote on Instagram, “we will be doing a few more of these in the coming weeks”.
From what we know, London and New York City are on the list.

Different promo posters specially made for the event were hanging on the auditorium walls, a few lucky fans got the chance to leave with some of them (thanks to @indo_matt and @misterdine):

The event was videotaped and should be broadcast in April on YouTube.
Special thanks to Laurent at BMG France.

In The End – Tracklist confirmed

January 3, 2019  |  6 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

Our team just had a look at the French SACEM website (French professional association collecting payments of artists’ rights and distributing the rights to the original songwriters, composers, and music publishers) where the song titles unveiled yesterday by Itzik are indeed all listed, which confirms that these songs will indeed feature on the band’s upcoming album In The End!
See screenshots below:




Interestingly, when browsing the To The Faithful Departed era on the SACEM website, we also noticed a song we had never heard of before: “Angel” !!!

In The End – tracklist revealed? (UPDATED)

January 2, 2019  |  8 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

A fan called Itzik just posted the below message on our website, revealing the possible “In The End” album tracklist in no particular order (as we already know from a recent Noel Hogan interview that In The End is to be the last song of the album)

The following is a list (in no particular order) of 11 newly registered song titles for the new album.
Please keep in mind that not all might end up on the album and some could be just working titles.

 

All Over Now (O’Riordan/Hogan)
A Place I Know (O’Riordan/Hogan)
Illusion (O’Riordan/Hogan)
Crazy Heart (O’Riordan/Hogan)
The Pressure (O’Riordan/Hogan)
In The End (O’Riordan/Hogan)
Summer Song (O’Riordan/Brodbeck)
Lost (O’Riordan)
Wake Me When It’s Over (O’Riordan)
Catch Me If You Can (O’Riordan)
Got It (O’Riordan)

 

BMG are still planning an “early 2019” release.

Happy new year everyone!!
Itzik

IMPORTANT: We do not yet know what his source is, nor if this is official or not, although it is very likely these information may have leaked on the Internet in the past hours.

More soon as we’re investigating, and a major thank you to Itzik for his comment.


UPDATE – JANUARY 3

Although the source hasn’t yet been revealed, we are inclined to think this tracklist is definitely real as Dan Brodbeck was indeed writing a song with Dolores shortly before she passed as confirmed in his January 2018 CBC interview.
Moreover, the track Illusion does ring a bell as a demo song sharing the same name was accidentally uploaded onto JETLAG.NYC’s Soundcloud account in November 2017…

“Íosa” studio version unveiled

September 27, 2018  |  8 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

History: clashmusic.com just released for the first time ever the studio version of “Íosa” as a teaser of Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? 25th Anniversary Edition.

Known as the only track written by Dolores O’Riordan in Irish Gaelic, “Íosa” had only been known through 1990s live recordings of Cranberries performances that did not enable lyrics to be deciphered. It was unknown whether the song had ever been recorded in studio or not… Today is thus a day to be remembered!

For those who are ready to get spoiled and be overwhelmed, here is the MASTERPIECE:

EDIT#1: Available on Spotify and Apple Music from Sept 28th on… meaning if it’s not midnight yet in your country, you’ll have to wait a couple of hours more!


EDIT#2: Official release date: September 28, 2018
Now midnight in Ireland, it’s available on the official The Cranberries account on YouTube/VEVO:

Our interview with French Director Olivier Dahan

September 17, 2018  |  5 Comments  |  by Webmaster  |  The Cranberries

We may know Olivier Dahan as the director of La Vie en Rose, Le Petit Poucet or Grace de Monaco, but to us, he is the iconic director of four music videos for The Cranberries as well as one from Dolores O’Riordan’s first solo album.

A few weeks ago, Olivier Dahan was kind enough to answer our questions and revisit his fruitful collaboration with The Cranberries.

Cranberries World: First, let’s start by talking about your first project with the band, how was your first collaboration in 1996, on Salvation?

Olivier Dahan: I worked at the time at ‘Bandits’, the production company owned by JB Mondino. The band contacted me and left me carte blanche for this clip. Dolores had sent me the lyrics telling me about the main theme: a song against drugs. At the time I would always start working with preparatory drawings: so I began drawing this scary clown, then other characters that I placed in some frames that made sense with the lyrics of the song.

Two of Olivier Dahan’s drawings he kindly agreed on sharing with us
(More drawings to be uploaded soon on our “Salvation” video page)

CW: How was your work received by the band, specifically Dolores?

OD: Dolores was more involved than the rest of the band, because she was the one writing the lyrics – but also because of her strong personality. At the end of the day, most of my exchanges at the time of the development of the concept were almost exclusively with her. She would then debrief the rest of the band on the ideas that she and I were contemplating.

CW: What were her expectations for the Salvation video?

OD: Beyond the anti-drug theme, one of the first things that she told me when we talked about the concept of Salvation‘s video was that she wanted her bones to be seen. She liked provocative or disturbing things sometimes. I understood that she was ready to go far and, as a matter of fact, our video was censored in some countries: we thus released a “light” version where scenes of violence, like the scene where the parents are tied on a chair, were blurred.
In general, Dolores was very attentive and wanted her clips not to be formatted. She always tended to want to go beyond mainstream.

CW: Your second collaboration with The Cranberries was in 1999 for the video for their fourth album’s first single, Promises. How was this concept born? Tell us about the idea of having the ‘Robins des Bois’ in the casting.

OD: I wanted a gap between the seriousness of the lyrics and an almost burlesque visual. The Cranberries did not know the ‘Robins des Bois’ and, as far as I’m concerned, I had only seen some of their sketchs. I believe they were only starting out back then, but I thought they could fit what I had in mind. That being said, I have been able to work again with Jean-Paul Rouve or Maurice Barthélémy since, who I both really appreciate. Maïwenn is also featured in this video. She plays the role of the scarecrow.

CW: And what about the atmosphere on the set with the band?

OD: The atmosphere was always very pleasant. I was given lots of freedom for creation; and the band would place their entire confidence in me. Their success, at the time, would allow them to be granted significant budgets for their clips and therefore to have lots of fun. They were always very enthusiastic and excited about our projects. We would get along quite well actually, each of them were very friendly. We spent a fair amount of time together later in Toronto when shooting the video for Animal Instinct. We would go out, attend gigs together, etc.

CW: Animal Instinct is quite different from the two other clips we’ve discussed so far. Where did you get the inspiration for that video?

OD: On this third collaboration with the band, I wanted to do something much more down to earth, with a direct link to the lyrics. This time, the shooting lasted for almost a week, in similar conditions to that of a movie, in Toronto. We worked out an entire story, set up a casting to find the actors… I wanted something that looked realistic. When it was broadcasted, we had to submit an alternative edit of the videoclip, a version that did not feature the intro, for MTV. This story with those kids who are removed from their mother was obviously something somehow too harrowing for them!

CW: At last, the band called on you once again in 2002 to work on the This Is The Day videoclip. What was the idea behind this?

OD: The goal was clearly to make a spectacular video with powerful images. In the end, it was not the link with the lyrics that mattered most here, but the aesthetic side with a rather baroque universe.

Preview of the storyboard of “This Is The Day” that Olivier Dahan kindly shared with us
(See more images taken from “This Is The Day” storyboard on the video page by clicking here)

CW: Dolores would always have those looks, and different haircut in your videoclips…

OD: Something was very clear on each of our collaboration: she had to be transformed, change her appearance. These transformations would motivate her a lot. On each of our collaborations, she wanted her look to be completely different from all the previous ones. Actually, among the first questions she would ask whenever we would start working on a new video concept was: “Alright, so what’s my look on this one? Which costume? Which make-up? Which hairstyle?” That would amuse her a lot. Gigi Lepage, the designer I work with, loved working with her.

CW: In 2007, you worked on the videoclip of When We Were Young, from Dolores’ first solo album. How was this collaboration different from those you had experienced with the band?

OD: Actually, it was not any different. The one main difference was the budget! The challenge here was to find some aesthetic ideas that could fit within this limitation. We shot the video in Paris, with sequence-shots, within a day. We made several sequence-shots this way, and chose the right shot together, there was no montage. Shooting started in the morning, and by the end of the day, the clip was done.

CW: Throughout all of these years, did you ever get to see the band play live?

OD: I did, several times! They had even asked me to film one of their concerts back then, though, unfortunately, I was already working on other projects at that time.

CW: Last question, which of these videoclips would you consider your favourite among all of those that we’ve discussed?

OD: The one that marked me most is probably Salvation, because it was our first collaboration and the concept worked very well. This Is The Day was also a beautiful collaboration: I produced this clip with Hervé Humbert, and worked with a graphic designer, Marc Latil, who I appreciate a lot; and I think the result is very powerful, visually speaking. The concept actually evolved throughout the process. During the shooting, we had not yet considered projecting images in space. We only got to improvise this later.
