new music 02/10/2018

The Cranberries have shared a previously-unreleased track titled 'Iosa', ahead of the 25th Anniversary resissue of their debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We. 

The late Dolores O'Riordan wrote 'Iosa' - which translates to 'Jesus'- as a tribute to her grandfather. It's believed to be the only track the Irish band recorded entirely in Gaelic. 

The box set of the OG album is set to include a number of unreleased tracks, outtakes, B-sides, earlier demos of their hits and a shitload of other special rarities. 

The band have also promised a full new album, as Dolores was in her writing element prior to her tragic death, earlier this year.

The band's guitarist Noel Hogan told The Guardian: "Dolores had an awful lot going on and she was on a roll of being able to write. Lyrically, the new album is very strong."

“She always said she found it hard to write songs when she was happy. She always said, put a bit of misery in her life and it was easier. We will do this album and then that will be it. There is no need to continue."
