The Cranberries started their Italian promo tour last weekend in Sanremo. The band performed two songs “Zombie” and “Tomorrow” at the 62 Festival di Sanremo on Saturday night. This was a playback performance with live vocals!

Monday, the band were guests at KISS KISS Radio and Radio Deejay in Milano.
On Tuesday The Cranberries will record a 4-song performance on TV show London Live 2.0 (Rai 2) then be on radio show The Flight (RTL 102.5).

Below an interview with the three lads done in the last days with a reporter from Blogosfere.

EDIT:

It seems the “London Live 2.0” TV show supposed to be recorded today (Monday 20) was postponed & should be recorded TOMORROW MORNING at 9:00 am. For now we have no information on why it was cancelled today. Anyway The Cranberries are still planned to play 3 or 4 songs. So if you are in Milano tomorrow you still have your chance to be part of the show as entrance is free (first come first served). Address: studi Rai in Viale Mecenate 76, Milano.

Canadian 2-CD edition of ‘Roses’ to include bonuses?

February 18, 2012  |  Comments Off on Canadian 2-CD edition of ‘Roses’ to include bonuses?  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

The Canadian 2-CD edition of “Roses” might get some international attention in the fan community…
According to the Archambault.ca website, the Canadian 2-CD edition might include “Always” and “Perfect World” as bonuses as well as the live version of “Dreams” from the Madrid show. This could be the only way to get those three tracks on CD.

Note that this information has not been confirmed by any other site and that this could be a simple mix up between the CD and digital editions of Roses.

More to come soon…

Do not miss the 30 seconds previews of “Serendipity” and “In It Together” now on Amazon.de.
As you may know, “In It Together” was recorded a first time in 2003 before being re-recorded in 2012 to be included on Roses. This track had already been heard a few times live before in 2003.

The Cranberries on KCSN: “What we found is what we had lost”

February 17, 2012  |  Comments Off on The Cranberries on KCSN: “What we found is what we had lost”  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries stopped by KCSN 88.5 FM yesterday for an interview and a 4-song performance on Sky Daniels’ Afternoon Music Mix.

Interviewed by Sky Daniels, Dolores and Fergal spoke about Roses and how this album was recorded in a happy way without pressure from the music industry, compare the their two previous albums. “I think that, creatively as writers, Noel and I went to a point of just turning out stuff. We were not really writing for the love of it, because we were contractually bound. We had to deliver. […] But with this particular album [Roses], I think that what we found is what we had lost,” told Dolores. She explains that Noel and she have been sharing music ideas now and then since 2005.

Fergal also said that The Cranberries plan to dig in their older songs for the next tour. “It’s great that we have so many songs to choose from, because we can vary the set list every night […] It’s nice to keep it fresh. We’ve found in the last tour that a lot fans come to see like 4 or 5 shows. So, they don’t want to see the same songs every night.”

So, will The Cranberries dare to pic oldies like “Uncertain”, b-sides like “Paparazzi on Mopeds”, “Cordell”, and “Stop Me”, or rarely played live songs like “Yeat’s Grave” and “What’s on My Mind” in the next tour?? Fingers crossed!!

The band played acoustic versions of “Tomorrow” and “Raining in My Heart”, as well as “Linger” and “Ode to My Family”. You can listen to the interview on the 88.5 KCSN Sound Cloud page.

Listen to “Someday” on iTunes Japan

February 14, 2012  |  Comments Off on Listen to “Someday” on iTunes Japan  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

iTunes Japan is now offering a 1:29 preview clip of bonus track “Someday”.
The song, which was written before the band hiatus, is a slow rock effort with political-themed lyrics. “America is waiting for a spaceman to come back / The President is shaking, the oil is running dry,” sings O’ Riordan.

In other news, the Japanese iTunes Deluxe Edition will include “Perfect World” and “Always” as bonuses, but not “Someday” – which is released only on the standard edition.

German “Tomorrow” CD-single? ‘Nein’…

February 10, 2012  |  5 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

It looks like there will be no CD-single release of “Tomorrow” after all…
Even though Universal Germany is still listing a CD-single release of “Tomorrow” for today, no online music retailers has it. A digital 1-track single was released instead today on all major digital music retailer sites in Germany. Germany was one of the last countries to commercially release The Cranberries first single online.

The music industry has changed considerably since The Cranberries last CD-single release (“Stars”, 2002). Lesser and lesser physical copies are sold and record companies tend to not release CD-singles anymore, relying instead on the digital music market.

The problem with digital bonus tracks like the ones on iTunes is that those music files – exclusively released in some countries – are not accessible to buy for fans from other regions of the world, a situation that encourage music piracy. Plus, many music collectors prefer to have a physical copy of bonus tracks, which where previously released on CD-singles in the 90’s and early 2000’s. As a matter of fact, we can see that the passion for CD-singles is still alive, as promo singles of “Tomorrow” were sold on eBay for up to $90.

In other news, there is still no word on that mysterious radio mix of “Tomorrow” by Michael Ilbert, which was intended for the German radio stations. If any German fans heard it, let us know here!

The Cranberries in New York – Recap

February 9, 2012  |  6 Comments  |  by Luc  |  The Cranberries

The Cranberries ended their second day of promotion in the Big Apple tonight. Last night, the band made their first appearance on American TV since 2001 on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. They played a full band version of “Tomorrow” on the show, and “Dreams” as bonus content for the show’s website. Fallon, who is obviously a big fan of the group told the audience how Dolores answered him back to his “I loooove you Dolores!” during a Cranberries concert in the mid 90’s. Funny moment.

“Tomorrow” – Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Today, The Cranberries were guests at “Soundcheck” on WNYC (radio station). Dolores and the three lads performed acoustic versions of “Raining in My Heart” and “Tomorrow” during the show, then “Zombie” as an extra for the radio station’s website. This was the first time that the band played a live version of the heartbreaking “Raining in My Heart” and there’s a video of that great moment:

“Stop Me” on the Canadian iTunes deluxe edition

February 8, 2012  |  1 Comments  |  by Luc  |  Dolores O'Riordan, The Cranberries

Bonus track “Stop Me” will be included on the Canadian iTunes deluxe edition which will be released on February 28. The track was first recorded for O’ Riordan’s “No Baggage” album but was not used on the record or as bonus material. The Cranberries recorded it again in Toronto last year.

Since a short preview of “Stop Me” was put online during the recording sessions of No Baggage, the up-beat song became a fan favorite.
