“Analyse” and “Panis Angelicus” at the Vatican released as singles

November 8, 2019  |  2 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Dolores O'Riordan

Out of the blue and just on time for Christmas, the songs “Analyse – Christmas at the Vatican” and “Panis Angelicus – Christmas at the Vatican” both recorded live on the 15 December 2001 at the 9° Concerto di Natale in Vaticano were released as singles a few days ago, on the 24 October 2019, on almost all streaming platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Amazon Music, Google Play…)
Not available on iTunes/Apple Music (yet?)

Both songs were already released last year (26 October 2018), “Analyse” on the album “A Very Merry Christmas”

and “Panis Angelicus” on 2 different albums, “Christmas at the Vatican” and “The Perfect Christmas”.

It looks like there is no physical releases for all these singles and albums, they are only available to stream or download.

Thanks to Dan Steward for the info.


EDIT: Also available on a few platforms (Google Play for instance), the album “A Joyful Christmas” released last year on 25 October 2018 which includes the songs “Analyse” and “Little Drummer Boy” still from the same Vatican show in 2001.  “Analyse” being credited to Dolores O’Riordan and “Little Drummer Boy” to The Cranberries (!?)

…and still on a few platforms, the song “Little Drummer Boy” is available as single. It was released on the 24 October 2019 and credited to The Cranberries & Westlife (!?)

Another Dolores O’Riordan mural in Limerick city: The Ark Tavern

November 5, 2019  |  5 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Other News

There is another Dolores O’Riordan mural in Limerick city. These kind of things happen… 2 murals done in the same city more or less at the same moment.

While the mural by artist Aches is still in the making (stopped because of torrential rain these last days), Instagram user Bold Details (@bold_details) posted today a few photos of another Dolores mural recently completed for the pub “The Ark Tavern” located on Corbally Road, exact location on Google Street View.

Great tribute!

EDIT: The following comment was posted on Facebook by The Art Tavern, thanks to them for the details, “The Ark Tavern was relaunched on the 12th of Oct, the mural of the late Dolores O’Riordan was spray painted by local art student Cormac Dillon a week before the 12th as well as many other great musicians. They can all be seen on the walls of the events/function room in the The Ark Tavern.”

PDF: Full chat from yesterday’s video countdown

October 4, 2019  |  1 Comments  |  by Axl  |  The Cranberries

Read the (almost) full chat with Fergal Lawler from yesterday’s video countdown. Only missing a couple of lines of fans chatting together at the very beginning, before Fergal was here.

There was also a bug/freeze in the chat window during the countdown before the launch of the video and a couple of lines might be missing there as well, or more likely appearing in the wrong order.
