THE CRANBERRIES — Something Else

THE CRANBERRIES have just released “Something Else” featuring re-worked renditions of their stellar hits, as well as new material, including the single: “Why.” [Listen below]

Something Else – The Cranberries

The Cranberries, formed around lead singer Dolores O’Riordan, with guitarist Noel Hogan, and bassist Mike Hogan, plus drummer Fergal Lawler developed a following in the 1990’s with debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? which only became a commercial success on the band’s tour supporting Suede when they came to the attention of MTV and their second single “Linger” was picked up.

The Cranberries are one of the most successful rock acts of the 1990’s and sold over 40 million records.

The Limerick indie-popper’s new album is available this weekend via BMG on digital and CD formats and includes familiar hits such as  “Linger” plus “Zombie” “Dreams” and “Ode to My Family.”

These numbers are all newly re-recorded with fresh orchestral & acoustic arrangements and celebrate the band’s 25th anniversary.

Why” [released this March] is a powerfully potent piece of ghost-theatre.

With O’Riordan’s vocals delivered like whisper-like icy shivers amongst the silvery-sweet and abundant richness of incredible orchestration.
