LISTEN: The Cranberries have just released their song to honour Dolores O’Riordan

Olivia Hayes

It’s part of their final album In The End.

Today is the first anniversary of Dolores O’Riordan’s death. The remaining members of The Cranberries have honoured her by releasing a new song All Over Now which features vocals from O’Riordan that were recorded before she passed away.

Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler and Mike Hogan said that they had long considered the most appropriate way to honour their bandmate and friend.

“This was a very painful process,” they said on Facebook.

“We remembered how Dolores had been so energised by the prospect of making this record and getting back out on the road to play the songs live, and realised that the most meaningful thing to do was to finish the album we had started with her.

“We felt that this is what she would want. We spoke with Dolores’ family and they agreed.”

Meanwhile, Dolores’ mother, Eileen said of the new song: “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.”
