Earlier today, at 3:00 PM (CET), the authors of the comic biography “Dolores” appeared on twitch.tv for almost an hour chat with Andrea Rock. If you missed it, replay is available now.
MEET THE AUTHORS!
If you are in Italy this month you can meet the authors and purchase the volume during special presentations in Milano (5&6 September), Treviso (25 September) and Roma (29 September). More details on edizionibd.it
Read the article about the comic biography “Dolores” (out today) directly on tg24.sky.it
In Italian obviously, however English translation via Google Chrome or Google Translate works very well for this one.
The Italian publisher Edizioni BD announced on Facebook last 5 July, a comic biography (!?) about Dolores O’Riordan to be released after the Summer.
Not much information for now, except a sample drawing (
or could it be the front cover, edit: it’s not!) and the names of the authors: Micol Beltramini for the text/words (in Italian obviously) and Francesca Ciregia for the drawings.
No price and no pre-order for now. To be continued…
New book to be released on Dolores’ birthday either titled “The story of The Cranberries in the newspapers” or maybe “The story of The Cranberries through newspapers”
Publisher Don’t Let The Music Die (from Spain) shows previews of both titles on the website dontletthemusicdie.com where you can pre-order the book now for €39.95
98 pages in color. 24 x 32 cm
A new 12-minute video interview with Noel Hogan was uploaded on YouTube today by user Off The Ball. Recorded yesterday in the streets of Limerick, Noel is mostly interviewed about, as title says, The Cranberries connection with Limerick hurling (Irish sport) and the song “Dreams”.

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

Yesterday, Hot Press informed fans that they had started shipping the “Why Can’t We?” book orders, showing on Instagram the platinum edition.
They shared on the occasion the first pictures of the Platinum Edition:
At the moment, only fans who have ordered the Deluxe Platinum Limited Edition exclusively have received the below email.
Those who have ordered both Special Gold Edition and Deluxe Platinum Limited Edition are still awaiting for their order to be shipped.
Thanks to Jennifer for the screen shot.
UPDATE – NOVEMBER 10 – 4:50 PM (UTC)
Those who ordered the Gold Edition are now receiving shipping confirmation as well today.
It seems the last who will get the email will be fans who ordered both editions at once.
UPDATE – NOVEMBER 14
Fans who ordered both editions are now receiving their shipping emails as well.
Hot Press also shared new pictures on their Instagram account stating “deliveries are going out every day”, everyone should therefore soon be getting their order.

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
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.ie, spindizzyrecords.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:
Yesterday evening, fans whose pictures have been selected to feature in the Hot Press “Why Can’t We?” book that documents the history of The Cranberries have been informed in an email of the good news:
Greetings from Dublin!I’m delighted to let you know that your photo will feature in thehardback deluxe copy of the Cranberries book!
Hot Press emphasizes that those fan pics will only feature on the Deluxe Platinum Edition of the book, not on the Special Gold Edition.
They also remind fans that the deadline to get the name of the people who preorder the Deluxe Platinum Edition listed as Executive Producers in the book, initially set on Sept 30th, has been pushed back so as to allow more fans to get this chance.
If you haven’t pre ordered that edition yet and want to feature on the list of Executive Producers, do it fast as they’re about to close this opportunity!
