During the first show in Cancún tonight Dolores announced before the last song (Dreams) that the band did a photo shoot yesterday, Thursday February 9th in Puerto Morelos, and the picture will be used for the cover of the next album. It is unclear whether this picture will be used as the cover of the greatest hits album with the Irish Chamber Orchestra or the completely new one that is expected afterwards?
Amazing fact, earlier today, an amateur photo of this photo shoot appeared on the internet. Facebook user Cesar Enrique Vera, the guy who took it randomly, didn’t know what was at stake when he captured this moment, he was just there at the right place, at the right time. Masterpiece!

Cranberries Mexico was lucky enough to talk about the photo shoot with Fergal, who mentioned that the picture was taken by none other than Andy Earl (who’s very famous in The Cranberries world in case you don’t know) and that they’re not sure whether the photo will be the cover or not, though it should definitely be part of the artwork.
