Dreams Cover on US commercial, and taking a personal break

Hello all, I apologize for not updating in a while. I am in the process of buying a house and that has been consuming most of my time. Once everything is settled I will resume regular updates.

Wishing Dolores a speedy recovery and hoping the tour gets back on track.

In the mean time a saw this commercial for University of Phoenix (an online College in the US) the other night theat uses a cover version of Dreams that I wanted to share.


Wowza, this is now my favorite Cranberries cover. According to Wikipedia this is Jeff Whalen's version with vocals by New Terot. I had previously reported about this cover. Gorgeous.

The Cranberries finally announce US tour


No South Florida!? Again!? But... it's been 15 years! booooo

Sigh, well they did say in a few separate interviews that there would be 18 dates, and they only announced 14. So maybe there's still hope... September 14th or 15th could fit after Atlanta...

Otherwise it looks like a 9 and 1/2 hour drive in the middle of the week for me to Georgia.

"Everybody..." standard vinyl from Analog Spark gets June 16th release date


ETA: A user at the vinyl collective message boards contacted Analog Spark regarding the Barnes and Noble release and whether it will be the same but only red. "I contacted Analog Spark and they confirmed it's based on their mastering."

Signed copies of "Something Else" sold out from official store. Dolores signed copies available from Newbury Comics

In case you missed the band signed copies from the official site. You can still order Dolores signed copies from Newbury Comics.

Many fans will remember Newbury selling signed booklets for No Baggage and Roses. (I've ordered signed booklets from them for years for various other artists).

"Why" radio instrumental version shared

A reader at Cranberries World was kind enough to share the track here! 

Much thanks to Cranberries World and their unnamed reader!



The Cranberries fan community has always been very generous and I'm proud to be a part of it. Hoping I get the opportunity to share something unique one day.

The Cranberries sign with US indie record label "The End Records"



The band was quietly added to the labels website last night. See here

Likely for the wide US distribution of "Something Else". (Up until this point it appeared that the US was just getting imported copies from the UK). This might be a good sign for preorder sales for the States, that they would need a more local distribution.
