LISTEN: New Cranberries single
'Show Me' is the band's first new song in over a decade.
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 19 Oct 2011
Having gone remarkably quiet following 2001's Wake Up And Smell The Coffee, The Cranberries returned last year for a worldwide reunion tour and finally that long-awaited six studio album is on the horizon. Roses is set for release on February 10 but before getting our hands on the long-player, we can enjoy first single 'Show Me' now.
Dolores O'Riordan and co have just made 'Show Me' available as a free download for two weeks. You can check it out for yourself below.
Speaking of their return, Dolores says: “Having recorded two albums with various different musicians during our hiatus, I could clearly see that Noel and Mike have a unique way of creating chords and Ferg keeps it together in a subtle way. We had a blast in the studio, Stephen was in his zone and it came together rather quickly. There is a sense of rejuvenation in the group, a freshness.”
Guitarist Noel Hogan added, “I always had the attitude that there would be another album. Over the last six years, Dolores and I were sending each other ideas on and off.” During the reunion tour, the band began working on new music during sound-checks. “The icing on the cake was to work with Stephen Street again who helped us re-discover our sound.”
