The Cranberries Release Their Final Album, “In The End”
The Cranberries were already in the process of making their next album when Dolores O’Riordan tragically passed away in January 2018. Now the remaining members – guitarist Noel Hogan, drummer Fergal Lawler, and bassist Mike Hogan – have finished and released what will be their final album, called In The End.
O’Riordan’s vocals were used from the demo tapes she was making with Noel. They were edited and then supplemented by the band’s former backing vocalist Johanna Cranitch. The rest of the band filled out the album by recording in the studio, which proved to be an emotional process.
“When we were doing the recording of the album, the first few days were a bit strange,” Mike said in an interview with the Daily Mail. “Then once we got into it we just got into it and got the work done, but we kept expecting Dolores to come through the door and say it wasn’t right, or something.”
Each of the members agreed that the Cranberries name will be retired after this album. They released the first single, “All Over Now,” on the one year anniversary of the singer’s passing. The song features Hogan’s bass prominently supporting the chord structure.
