The Cranberries share a new single titled In The End. Available for download and streaming, the band’s latest track is the title track for their forthcoming album. In the End” was the final song the Cranberries recorded and closes out their swan song album.
The band began working on the album in May 2017 and had recorded the demos for songs that would eventually comprise In the End before O’Riordan’s death. The single itself is an emotional gut punch with O’Riordan lamenting, “Ain’t it strange, when everything you wanted, was nothing like you wanted? In the end.”
“What a way to finish the record. To have ‘In The End’ as the last song is just perfect,” Cranberries drummer Feral Lawler said in a statement. Guitarist Noel Hogan added: “Lyrically it is self-explanatory. It speaks for itself, it just is a lovely feeling and it’s a gorgeous song.”
“Dolores was so energized by the prospect of making this record and to getting back out on the road to play the songs live,” Hogan said in a statement. “I remember talking to her that summer and she said ‘I’m starting all over here’ and a lot of the songs discuss that.”
