The surviving members of The Cranberries, UMe/Island Records, and the estate of the late Dolores O’Riordan are celebrating the legacy of the band’s frontwoman on what would’ve been her 50th birthday.
Remembering Dolores is a specially curated 15-track streaming-only compilation of songs from the band’s eight album catalog.
“To mark the occasion, we have, together with some of Dolores’ closest friends and family, chosen a special playlist of 15 songs from our catalog — songs that remind each of us in differing ways and for differing reasons of Dolores — and rather than choose songs from the hits, we decided to choose from some of our favorite lesser-known songs,” say remaining band members Fergal Lawler, and brothers Mike and Noel Hogan in a statement.
Today — September 6, 2021 — at 1 pm ET, Fergal and the Hogan brothers will present a livestream event on the band’s Facebook page to discuss the significance of each track with Hot Press‘ Stuart Clark.
Additionally, following the livestream, The Cranberries will premiere a new music video for “Never Grow Old,” created from never-before-seen footage of the band from assorted photoshoots, outtakes, and b-roll from their popular videos “Linger,” “Free to Decide,” “Ode to My Family,” and “Zombie” and others.
