The Cranberries have announced they plan to move forward with a new album that was in the works before vocalist Dolores O’Riordan died in January. She recorded her vocals last year. They also plan to reissue their debut album, Everybody Else is Doing It So Why Can’t We to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
“After much consideration we have decided to finish what we started,” the band said in a statement. “We thought about it and decided that as this is something that we started as a band, with Dolores, we should push ahead and finish it. So that’s the plan, to finish the project and get the special 25th anniversary edition album out later this year.”
O’Riordan died January 25 in London where she was to record vocals for Bad Wolves’ cover of the Cranberries’ hit “Zombie.” At the time, no cause of death was released. A few days later, the London coroner’s office released a statement saying it would not release details regarding her death until April.
