Why now available on Spotify

As of this morning, you can add the album version of Why to your Spotify playlists.

Here's hoping they make the radio version available as well. I like them both but I'm leaning toward the other.

ETA: The radio edit has been officially uploaded to youtube:

World Radio Premiere of "Why" on BBC Radio 2 today!

Will be interesting to see if there is a radio edit as the song clocks in at over 5 minutes.

Listen Here!

ETA: It just aired, yes it is a radio edit. Much more compact with a little more production. Most of the intro is gone and it ends with Dolores' voice. I really like it! Very radio friendly!

Also, new image from the band's official twitter (possible single art preview?).

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The Cranberries are once again included on a few Paddy's Day lists and playlists.

10 songs to celebrate Patty’s Day

9. The Cranberries – “Zombie”
Did someone say party? If it’s the 90’s, The Cranberries are there. However the year doesn’t matter in the slightest when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day. This band is Irish to the core! Heck, they’re even from a city called Limerick. If that (and “Zombie”) doesn’t scream Irish, nothing does. “Zombie” is such a good song!.
How can we forget the brooding sounds of this band that was at their peak in the '90s? Some may shy away from the tone of lead singer Dolores O'Riordan's voice, but you cannot deny its uniqueness. If they've been absent from your playlist for years, throw them back in the mix and listen with a strong cocktail — should help get those memories flowing.
Download/Stream This: "Zombie"

4. The Cranberries

A hallmark of '90s alternative/pop rock, The Cranberries are one of the rare Irish bands to make an auspicious run on US music charts with singles like "Zombie," "Linger," and "Ode to My Family." With singer Dolores O'Riordan's unique vocals, the Hogan brothers' grungy guitar and bass and Fergal Lawlor's drums The Cranberries are one of the most successful rock acts of the '90s and have sold over 40 million records worldwide. The band has achieved four top 20 albums on the Billboard 200 chart and eight top 20 singles on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.

It's also available on Spotify, and, I'm sure across all other music sites (I'm too lazy to check).

The Cranberries get a shout out on The Real O'Neals

ABC's recent love affair with our favorite band continued tonight. According to several twitter users a joke was made about The Cranberries being responsible for unplanned pregnancies in the 90's. The band even got a shout out from the show's official twitter account, see link.

It's unclear if any songs were played in the episode, Ill be checking it out when it hits on demand.

ETA: Finally watched it. No songs were played in this episode. The joke was a throw back to a previous episode that indeed played Linger when two characters... conceived a baby. So that's 3 for 4 on ABC's Tuesday lineup. Dreams on American Housewife, Zombie on Fresh off The Boat and Linger on The Real O'Neals. Will The Middle make it 4 for 4 before the end of the season?

Rolling Stone premieres the orchestral version of Linger

If you pre-ordered the album through the official site, this will be available for download after March 16th.
