Big day today in the Cranberries world, the band just updated their official website cranberries.com as well as all their socials with the cover of their new – and last – studio album “In The End”, along with a long statement to explain the process of the album. No release date has been announced yet, hopefully soon… (possibly Spring 2019)
Also, to mark the first anniversary of Dolores’s passing, they will be releasing the first single “All Over Now” on the 15th of January.
In The End – album cover
You might recognize Noel’s son, Dylan, holding a guitar on the left, where his father is used to standing on stage. Although the other 3 kids are not yet known, we can imagine they are kids from Fergal, Mike and Dolores’ family.
EDIT: The little Emma is indeed the daughter of one of Dolores’ nieces and the name of little boy on the bass is William, son of Tommy O’Carroll and Kay O’Carroll. No more details about his link with Mike yet; family? or friend? or else?

UPDATE – MARCH 11th
More about the kids on the cover…
Emma, alias Dolores O’Riordan, is the daughter of Elaine O’Riordan. Elaine is one of Dolores’ nieces and is the little girl with Dolores in the majestic horse and cart on Dolores’ wedding day.

Dylan Hogan, alias Noel Hogan, is Noel’s son. To illustrate, a photo from Noel’s private Instagram account (the one and only time).

William O’Carroll, alias Mike Hogan, is Mike’s nephew. Remember the name of Mike’s wife, Siobhan O’Carroll (Thanks to Mat in the comments below). On 18 January 2019, the Meelick National School posted a great photo on Facebook.

In the role of Fergal Lawler, the name of the little boy is still unknown and the only detail that surfaced yet is that he is Fergal’s nephew.
The Cranberries shared on Instagram a photo of the test pressing of the new album “In The End”. A vinyl version will definitely be available! The album is to be released probably in Spring 2019. The exact date is not known yet. Hopefully soon…
Yesterday The Cranberries posted on Instagram a photo of their invitation to the “Conferring of an Honorary Degree of The University of Limerick on The Cranberries”. The band didn’t give any other info at the time, such as the date of the ceremony nor if this was going be a public event or not…etc.
Some fans then commented it could be an Honorary Doctorate.
The ceremony will take place on Friday 18 January to honor all band members. Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler and Mike Hogan will receive honorary doctorates while a posthumous award will be made to the family of the late Dolores O’Riordan.
The University of Limerick awards honorary doctorates to “individuals who have shown outstanding achievement, nationally or internationally, in the arts, sciences, business, industry, the professions, sport, social service or public service.”
It looks like ceremonies at the Limerick University are reserved to invited guests only, and that dress code applies. All details can be found on the “general information for invited guests” page of the UL’s website.
For those who are not invited to attend, the UL ceremonies seem to be live streamed on this link. For now, there’s no information whether the ceremony in which The Cranberries are part will be available for watching or not.
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” !!!
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)
Crazy Heart (O’Riordan/Hogan)
The Pressure (O’Riordan/Hogan)
In The End (O’Riordan/Hogan)
Summer Song (O’Riordan/Brodbeck)
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!!
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…
As Ireland just entered 2019 a few minutes ago, The Cranberries official website updated their home page to reveal what should be an artwork linked to the release of their upcoming – and last – album “In The End”, due in 2019.
If the exact release date isn’t known to this date, BMG is likely to release the album in Spring as September/October might be devoted to the 25th anniversary of the No Need To Argue album.

The CW Team would like to use the occasion to send our fellow grieving fans our best wishes, hoping that this new year will bring everyone peace and closure.
Tomorrow on Irish TV RTÉ One at 6.20pm (Irish time), the series “Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” will include the late Dolores O’Riordan in a Christmas Special. The show dives into the RTÉ archives to rebroadcast some of the very best musical performances over the years.
St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir accompanied by the James Last Orchestra, The Corrs, Colm Wilkinson, Jerry Lee Lewis, the late Dolores O’Riordan and Bring Crosby in conversation with reporter Aine O’Conor in Dublin in 1976 are expected on tomorrow’s show. Monday 24 December 2018. Duration: 60 minutes.
Don’t forget to record and share!
And for those outside of Ireland you can watch RTÉ One by clicking this link.
The show rebroadcast a small part of the “Kenny Live” show from December 1993. It was quite easy to guess as that particular “Pat Shortt’s Music From D’Telly” was a Christmas Special and the performance at Kenny Live back in 1993 was recorded a few days before Xmas near a Xmas tree in the TV studio.
Only a small part of the interview and an edited version of Linger were rebroadcast. Unfortunately The Cranberries performance was the very last of the D’Telly show which implies end credits on it 🙁
Also, the image was upscaled to 16:9 instead of the original 4:3 format.
Definitely not the most interesting rebroadcast especially as most of the fans already had the complete appearance in pretty good quality. A small improvement though!
And for those who don’t have it, the original version is still available on YouTube:
“Rapturous Reception For The Cranberries 1993″
Following a hugely successful American tour supporting Duran Duran, The Cranberries return to Limerick and receive a Mayoral reception.

On the Cranberries Italia Facebook group, Niall Quinn wrote, “That’s my dad Dolores is talking to at 0.37”
(Actually… the guy receiving an autograph, how cool!)
Great rare photos taken by Anne O’Connor during the recording of Everybody Else and posted by The Cranberries on Instagram yesterday.

On Thursday 22 November 2018, John Hennessy, Ber Angley, Máire Keary-Scanlon and Shane Curtin were honored by the city of Limerick for their contribution to the musical landscape of the city. People from the music community came out in support at the mayoral reception at City Hall and Noel Hogan was one of them.

The Cranberries are mentioned in the part concerning Ber Angley, who is synonymous with events at University of Limerick since the 1980s:
Professor Eoin Devereux spoke about Ber’s achievements.
“He had the capacity to imagine and dream and say ‘why can’t we do things like this?’.”
Ber also played a part in getting Limerick’s most successful music export signed to a major label. He played a very significant role in the history of the band, booking them for The Stables Bar and rostered them on national tours of the colleges in their early days.
Ber booked The Cranberries for a Rag Week gig at The Jetland on Ennis Road. (where Dunnes Stores / Woodies is now).
Prof Devereux told the audience, “There were 32 A&R men from the record industry hoping to sign The Cranberries.
At that gig a man called Denny Cordell of Island Records made a deal with The Cranberries. It was a historic night in the history of the band that went to global success.”

The day after, Ber Angley published on Twitter a photo of his award and a ‘thanks everyone’ message:

Dolores O’Riordan literally rules the Billboard chart’s History as top female artist in the alternative songs chart according to the article published earlier today on billboard.com
The Cranberries frontwoman counts 8 entries in the chart (Linger, Dreams, Zombie, Ode To My Family, Ridiculous Thoughts, Salvation, Free To Decide, Promises) including a pair of number 1s. Brilliant!
Thanks to ‘The Cranberries Newspaper’ on Facebook for finding the article.
Billboard.com just published a new interview with Noel Hogan featuring the track “Shine Down” that should be the “Nothing Left At All” cassette version of the song that we know (impossible to tell as their player does not seem to be working at the moment).
Noel interestingly mentions that he hopes the other Cranberries albums will be given the same anniversary treatment as Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We. However he notes that it “would be harder to find (bonus) things because with (Everybody Else…) we had all the years of build-up for us to get to that point, a lot of stuff between demos and gigs and things that we were able to include. The problem going forward is that album came out and became very successful, so everything we did after that was released or used straightaway. To find rarities may be a bit of a struggle — though I could be wrong. Things could pop up that I may have forgotten about“.
Definitely something fans should be able to help with 😉
Noel also confirms that the final Cranberries album, In The End, should be “very emotional, because of all the things that were going on in Dolores’ life“, and reasserts that “she was psyched about doing the album“, which makes “her death” something “very, very unfair” as “she was very, very positive” : “when she started writing this album it was all very positive and she couldn’t wait to get into the studio or back on the road again“, especially as the band was planning to tour in China in March.
