Their final album with late singer Dolores O'Riordan
Contains songs that O'Riordan worked on prior to her death
One year after the death of Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, her band mates have announced their final album In the End, a collection of songs O'Riordan worked on prior to her January 15, 2018 death. The Cranberries also shared In the End‘s first single, the catchy "All Over Now."
"I can't think of a more fitting way to commemorate the first anniversary of Dolores' passing and to celebrate her life than to announce to the world the release of her final album with the band," Eileen O'Riordan, Dolores' mother, said in a statement.
"I miss her awfully, specially today, as does the entire family. She was very excited about this new album and was really looking forward to its release. I have no doubt that she is happy now and would be delighted with today's announcement."
O'Riordan and band mate Noel Hogan began working the songs that would ultimately appear on In the End while touring in May 2017, with the duo writing and demoing 11 songs that winter. "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 in a statement.
However, before the Cranberries could play the demoes for their record label BMG, O'Riordan died in a London hotel room following a "tragic accident." Following months of mourning, her Cranberries band mates listened back to O'Riordan's vocals for the album and, after receiving the full support of O'Riordan's family, enlisted producer Stephen Street — who worked on four Cranberries album, including their breakout Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? — to help complete the album.
