The Cranberries have revealed that they will finish their new album, as it’s what Dolores O’Riordan would have wanted.
The singer was found dead in London last month, and since Dolores was laid to rest in Limerick – her bandmates have released a statement thanking their fans for all their support over the last few weeks.
Taking to their Facebook page, the remaining member of the band – Noel, Mike and Ferg – wrote, “Firstly we would like to thank everyone for their support and kind words over the past few weeks.”
“As you can imagine this has been a very sad and difficult time, not only for us, but also for Dolores’ family. Reading though the messages you all sent has been amazing.”
“To see how much of a positive impact Dolores had on people’s lives is so lovely and gives some comfort at this very difficult time. A lot of people have been asking what does the future hold for the band? We have been discussing this over the past few days.
“Over the past few months, the writing process for a new Cranberries album had begun with a lot of new songs already quite well developed.
“Dolores had already recorded vocals on these tracks so we have decided to finish them as it is what she would have wanted.”
“We don’t know how many tracks will make the final album right now but it was Dolores’ wish that we complete the recording of the album and release it so we going to do just that in the coming months.
“As well as finishing the new album there are a few more Cranberries projects that were already underway. We will look at each as time permits.
“Again, thank you all for your support. We will try our best to keep you all up to date on things as they unfold,” they added.
