Irish alt-rock band The Cranberries, who rose to fame in the 1990s, have announced that they’re readying a new album to celebrate their 25th anniversary. They join fellow groups Hanson and TLC in bringing a touch of ’90s nostalgia to 2017.
The Cranberries revealed earlier this month that their new album “Something Else” , a nod to their 1993 debut album “Everybody Else is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?” , will drop on April 28. The album will feature the band’s old songs, reworked with the Irish Chamber Orchestra.
This week the band shared a first track from the album, an orchestral version of their first major hit, “Linger”: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDK0xdiHB
