The Cranberries are one of Ireland’s most successful pop-rock acts of the 90s. After a hiatus during most of the 2000s, they’re back with a new album, Roses, which was released in Ireland on Feburary 24, 2012 and globally on February 27. As part of promoting the new release, The Cranberries recently played a small acoustic set at NPR, where they played some of their classics such as “Zombie” and “Linger” as well as two new songs from the album, “Tomorrow” and “Raining In My Heart”. The mix of old and new songs shows that the band isn’t afraid to revisit their past catalog.
The acoustic set is small and intimate, but what impressed me the most was the cohesiveness between the band. It’s as if they never went on a hiatus, and if they did… they still rehearsed frequently. You can check out the set below.
