THE CRANBERRIES - IN THE END
2019 release, the eighth and final studio album by Irish alternative rock band The Cranberries. It is the band's first release since the death of singer Dolores O'Riordan, who died on 15 January 2018. Guitarist Noel Hogan and O'Riordan began composing songs for the album while on tour in March 2017. That June, Hogan spent time in France writing and sending his demos to O'Riordan in New York to add lyrics. Together they wrote and demoed 11 songs that winter, with the final emails from O'Riordan arriving to Hogan hours before she died. The surviving bandmates set aside her vocals for several months following her death and after getting the full support from O'Riordan's family, they brought in Stephen Street-who produced several of their early albums-to complete the recording sessions in April and May. Noel Hogan has confirmed that the remaining members of the Cranberries will disband after it's release.
