“Remembering Dolores” double vinyl to be released in April 2022

January 13, 2022  |  11 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

According to amazon.fr and fnac.com, a double vinyl titled “Remembering Dolores” will be released on 7 April 2022.

Not much information for now!
There is no artwork and no tracklist yet. It might be a French release only as Amazon marked the country of origin as France and some of their other stores, like amazon.it for instance, marked it as import.

Edit: Could it be the playlist pulled together by bandmates, family and friends (to celebrate Dolores’ 50th birthday last 6 September) pressed on 2 LP… Possibly!

Label: Universal Music

“Stars (Best Of)” to be re-released on vinyl on 27 May 2022 (UPDATED)

November 25, 2021  |  7 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

According to recordsonvinyl.nl and bol.com, the best of “Stars” will be re-released on double vinyl on 27 May 2022.

There is no information about the vinyl color yet; and dont pay attention to the image used on recordsonvinyl.com, the black vinyl around the album cover is what they do on all their images.

The only thing for now is that recordsonvinyl.nl states from Netherlands, and bol.com states from Czech Republic. So, who’s right?

Also, will they re-use the same transparent disc released for the Record Store Day edition with slightly different credits on back cover, or will it be a brand new black (or else) vinyl edition?

Hopefully more info soon…

Pre-order is already available now. Price: €37.95 (recordsonvinyl) and €42.99 (bol)

Thanks to Barbara for the info and links!


UPDATE – NOVEMBER 26

bol.com now states BLACK VINYL


UPDATE – APRIL 7, 2022

The Cranberries announced on their socials (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) and by email today, the release of the black vinyl, still on 27 May 2022, and shared a 15-second video for the occasion.


“Salvation inspired by The Cranberries” pushed back for the second time (3 UPDATES)

November 5, 2021  |  12 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

The album was supposed to be released today but was pushed back to 12 November as mentioned on towerrecords.ie

Same for all streaming platforms.

Might be due to Adele’s new LP pressing that is currently triggering shortage – read this article from variety.com

Don’t forget tonight on The Late Late Show, ROE performing her version of “I Can’t Be With You” to coincide with the release of the album… well, not anymore!!


UPDATE – NOVEMBER 5 – 4:00 PM (UTC)

The album is now available on all streaming platforms, it was not the case earlier in the day. Ultimately the physical release does not impact the digital one anymore.


UPDATE – NOVEMBER 6

According to goldendiscs.ie the yellow (edit: black) vinyl will be released on 28 January 2022.


UPDATE – JANUARY 29, 2022

Vinyl pushed back once again!
Supposed to be released yesterday, its new release date is now 18 February 2022, according to many websites such as goldendiscs.iespindizzyrecords.com
On spindizzyrecords.com the mention yellow vinyl is back, which would indeed make more sense.

About the cd, it was released a long time ago, and still available in stores:
