The Cranberries Unveils New Song “In The End”
- Irish rock band The Cranberries unveiled the title track from their forthcoming final album “In The End” on April 15th.
It is a chillingly-beautiful farewell ballad for the late band frontwoman Dolores O’Riorda.
Dolores O’Riordan and guitarist Noel Hogan began working on all the songs on the new album before O’Riordan’s death last January.
After several months of mourning, Noel Hogan and producer Stephen Street, who’d previous helmed four Cranberries records, to help them finish the album.
“What a way to finish the record. To have ‘In The End’ as the last song is just perfect,” the band drummer Feral Lawler said in a statement.
Noel Hogan added, “Lyrically it is self-explanatory. It speaks for itself, it just is a lovely feeling and it’s a gorgeous song.”
“Dolores was so energized by the prospect of making this record and to getting back out on the road to play the songs live,” Hogan said. “I remember talking to her that summer and she said ‘I’m starting all over here’ and a lot of the songs discuss that.”
The album “In The End” is set to be released on April 26th via BMG. It is available to pre-order here.
