While this doesn’t have a specific date, it’s still quite nice to know that a 25th Anniversary Edition of Everyone Else Is Doing It So Why Can’ We? by The Cranberries is around the corner and planned for “later this year”. The tragic death of Cranberries vocalist, Delores O’Riordan had threatened to derail the project but the band members have decided to go ahead with it to honor their singer.
The 25th Anniversary edition is said to include a remastered edition of Everyone Else Is Doing It So Why Can’ We, as well as an inclusion of previously unreleased materials from the sessions for this now classic album. It’s one we will patiently look forward to until it’s released.
Additionally, Delores O’Riordan had finished vocals for the band’s newest album. This was another album that had threatened to fall due to immense sadness over the high-profile singer’s death. But with a newfound resolve to honor the legacy of Delores O’Riordan, the new album will be finished and released “early next year”.
We still mourn the loss of Delores O’Riordan but I’m heartened to know that she will live on in her music. The 25th Anniversary Edition is a welcome start to that honor. The new album is icing!
When I get word that a date has been affixed to both sets, I will be sure to inform you.
