“Morning Becomes Eclectic”, fans become ecstatic!

November 19, 2011  |  1 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

Santa Monica-based radio station KCRW is now streaming back on the Web the 1993 performance The Cranberries offered on the Morning Becomes Eclectic show, which features an acoustic version of rare track, False.

The recording, which was no longer available on Internet for more than a decade, was posted back on the radio station website after a few demands. 🙂

The show features interview segments between the four songs performed in acoustic format.

This performance is one of the most praised in the fan community because of its track list and the laidback attitude of the band performing the songs and during the interview.

Here’s your first chance to hear this recording in high quality!

Track list:
1. Linger
2. False
3. Sunday
4. I Will Always

Two-disc edition of “Roses” to be released

November 17, 2011  |  Comments Off on Two-disc edition of “Roses” to be released  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

A two-disc edition of Roses will be available to purchase on February 13, according to Amazon UK. But don’t get too excited about the bonus material…

The second disc will contain live material recorded during the Reunion Tour in Madrid (Spain) on March 12, 2010, where they played most of their past singles. Tracks are to be confirmed.

This seems like an odd choice for a second disc content, considering the possibilities with more recent material (live stadium versions of “Tomorrow” and “Schizophrenic Playboys”, six non-album tracks recorded for Roses, demos from the 2003 recording sessions, acoustic versions of Roses tracks, etc.).

Live stadium versions of past singles, such as “Dreams”, “Zombie”, “Salvation” and “Promises” to name a few, were already proposed on many CD-singles in the past, as bonus material on their last studio album, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee and their 2002 Greatest Hits, Stars, as well as on a 2010 live compilation, Bualadh Bos, and a 3-disc live album, Live in Paris 2010. The latter was a reissue of a series of limited edition albums proposed to fans after European shows of the Reunion Tour, which also included the Madrid show.

November 17, 2011  |  Comments Off on Worldwide release date for “Tomorrow” in December?  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

According to Amazon France, “Tomorrow” will be available to purchase in digital format on December 5. Will this be the official release date for all regions of the world?

The song is already available on the UK Amazon site as well as on iTunes in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Another interesting bit of information from the Amazon France:

Copyright: (c) 2011 Timeless Solutions Ltd in association with Shamrock Solutions Ltd under exclusive license to Cooking Vinyl Ltd for the World except Canada

Does this mean that the album will be released on a different label in Canada or that it will be distributed by Downtown Records, as for the U.S.?

More to come soon…

Good start for “Tomorrow” and “Show Me the Way” on U.S. radio

November 7, 2011  |  3 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

“Tomorrow” arrived at number 8 of the “Taking Off” chart (Triple-A radio format) in the U.S. for the Oct. 31-Nov. 6 period, due to significant spins on WXRT (Chicago).`

 

As for “Show Me the Way”, the song made top 20 list of the “Taking Off” chart in the Alternative format for the Nov. 1 -7 period. Other alternative songs debuting on radio this week didn’t made the list.

TAKING OFF is a format-by format look at up to the Top 50 currents sorted by the most new spins showing detections for the first time (minimum of 6 detections required).

The Cranberries might appear on a future Peel Sessions compilation

November 4, 2011  |  1 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

Back in January 1992, The Cranberries recorded a four-track studio session for the John Peel show, more than a year before the release of their first studio album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?. No songs from that session were ever commercially released, but things might change in the next months…

EMI, in partnership with the BBC, released the first volume of a series of Peel Sessions compilations this week. There are no words yet about the release date for the volume covering the early 90’s, nor if a track from The Cranberries will be included.

For their Peel Session, The Cranberries recorded slightly different versions of “Linger”, “Wanted”, “Waltzing Back” and “I Will Always”.

Few years ago, a medium-quality tape recording of this session was featured on an unauthorized bootleg entitled Be with You. Slightly better quality audio files – but nothing compared to the real thing – also circulate in the fan community. Here’s a link (no longer available) for those Cranfans who want it!

For almost 40 years, emerging artists and bands recorded sessions specially intended to be broadcasted on the John Peel show at the BBC. To learn more about the Peel Sessions, visit the Keeping It Peel website.

In Ireland, radio host Dave Fanning from RTÉ (Irish public service broadcaster) gave a similar opportunity to emerging musicians. The Cranberries recorded two sessions for his show in 1991 and 1993. These sessions were (sadly) never commercially released neither. The 1991 session was broadcasted a couple of times in the last few years on the Dan Hegarty show.

“Tomorrow” already a “hot pick” on two U.S. radios

November 3, 2011  |  2 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

According to allaccess.com, KMTT (Seattle) and KINK (Portland, OR) radio stations have already selected “Tomorrow”, The Cranberries first single for Triple-A radios, as one of this week “hot picks” more than 3 weeks before its official radio release date.

Brad Savage, Program Director at WCNR (Charlottesville, VA), also told The Cranberries Press that his station already began airing “Tomorrow” as well. WCNR made a lot of Cranberries fans happy today by posting on its website an acoustic set that Dolores O’ Riordan performed in December 2007.

As for “Show Me the Way”, WRFF (Philadelphia) has been airing it since October 23.

“Tomorrow” and “Show Me” to team up on U.S. radios

October 27, 2011  |  Comments Off on “Tomorrow” and “Show Me” to team up on U.S. radios  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

After days of speculation about The Cranberries’ first single for Roses, it looks like we are starting to get some answers. At least, for the U.S. market…

According to Allaccess.com, the band will release “Show Me” under the Alternative radio format on November 8 – as reported yesterday, while “Tomorrow” is to be sent out to radio stations two weeks later (November 21), under the Triple-A format (Adult Alternative).

It looks like Americans will get lots of Cranberries, just in time for Thanksgiving. Turkeys, beware!

“Show Me” on U.S. radios in two weeks?

October 26, 2011  |  Comments Off on “Show Me” on U.S. radios in two weeks?  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

Just when we thought that The Cranberries had finally selected their first single for Roses, things became a bit more uncertain today!
After several reports indicating that “Tomorrow” will be the official comeback single for the band, Allaccess.com now lists “Show Me The Way” for a radio release on November 8 under “Impacting Songs”.

Is this a change in the marketing strategy due to the many positive reviews of “Show Me The Way” online since its giveaway release? Is North America getting a different single than the rest of the World? Too many questions, so few answers…

Forgotten version of “Zombie” comes back from the grave

October 22, 2011  |  5 Comments  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

Halloween is just around the corner and it looks like zombies are crawling back from the grave! We have found today a slightly rougher studio version of The Cranberries 1994 hit, “Zombie”, which seems to have been forgotten by most of us.

The Radio 1 FM Sessions Volume 2 – Cassette artwork

Recorded for a BBC Radio 1 Evening Session in 1994, this version of “Zombie” was released in 1995 on a giveaway cassette (yes, cassette!) with UK magazine Vox. To our knowledge, this is the only release of this Evening Session version.

Back in 1995, two other songs from the Evening Session (“Empty” and “I Can’t Be With You”) were released on an “I Can’t Be With You” single. The Cranberries’ Evening Session was first broadcasted on September 26, 1994 on BBC Radio 1.

Here is a downloadable mp3 file for the fans to enjoy!

“Conduct” becomes “Conduct Yourself”; “Raining in my Heart” is reggae-infused

New bits of information on some Roses tracks

Cooking Vinyl has just updated its site with a section about The Cranberries, in which new information is revealed about some tracks from Roses. Here are some interesting excerpts:

The result is Roses, 11 new songs from The Cranberries. Produced by the band’s old friend and collaborator Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur and more recently Kaiser Chiefs) the songs on Roses sound like nuggets buried deep inside The Cranberries’ soul harking back to the freshness and acoustic originality of the band’s first two albums, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Cant We? and No Need To Argue.

The songs vary in pace and mood, from the soft and summery “Fire and Soul” to the reggae infused “Raining In My Heart” and the sweeping storm that rages within “Conduct Yourself.”

Some of the songs from the latest album date back to the days before they paused The Cranberries in 2003, like “Astral Projection” and “Raining In My Heart”. Others come from the sound checks in 2010, like “Serendipity,” “Conduct Yourself,” and the seize-the-day themed first single “Tomorrow.” But there were still a few surprises at the last minute during recording at Metalworks in Toronto in April and May of 2011. On an evening off as Dolores was going in to watch the movie Limitless, she listened to a melody Noel had saved for her. She loved it instantly and later that night wrote the lyrics to it calling the song “Roses”.

“Show Me The Way” is not the first “Roses” single

October 20, 2011  |  Comments Off on “Show Me The Way” is not the first “Roses” single  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

In a tweet message today, Noel Hogan confirmed that “Tomorrow” will be the first official single from the Roses album and that “Show Me The Way” is only a free-download track. Some media falsely reported yesterday that SMTW was the first single of the upcoming album. Thanks to Dolitsa for asking Noel.

Earlier today, Hogan posted the first review of “Show Me The Way” published online on Indie Rock Reviews, which is quite positive:

If you have just recently crawled from under a rock then you might have missed that Ireland alternative rock legends, The Cranberries, are back and offering up “Show Me The Way”, their first single from the bands new album ‘Roses’, which comes out Valentines Day, 2012. Their 3 previous track samples have been quite the tease, but now they’ve gone and given us a proper dosage of pure Cranberries genius. ‘Roses’ is shaping up to potentially be one of the best albums The Cranberries have ever released and should have the band back in the limelight, and that’s just where we want them.

Half disappointing night for Cranfans

October 18, 2011  |  Comments Off on Half disappointing night for Cranfans  |  by The Cranberries Press Archives  |  The Cranberries

While everyone in the Cranberries community was expecting the 1993 Dave Fanning Session tonight, RTÉ 2fm broadcasted the 1991 session, which was partly known from the fans.

Besides from “Dreams” “Uncertain” and “Reason”, which had been broadcast on Dan Hegarty’s show in 2010, the Irish radio host dug out of the vault “Put Me Down” for the first time since its first broadcast in 1991.

It looks like there was a bit confusion on the RTÉ 2fm site, which previously announced the broadcast of the 1993 session last Thurday.

Radiohost Dan Hegarty was kind enough to clear out the situation on air and told listeners that he will try to find the 1993 session and broadcast it eventually.

The 1993 Fanning Session includes two unreleased tracks entitled “False” and “Like You Used To”.

You can listen to the complete 1991 Session on the Fanning Sessions Archive website.
