The Cranberries have an utterly distinctive sound, not least due to the instantly recognizable vocal of Dolores, which on this album is brought to the forefront due to it's unplugged nature. As such, Something Else offers a fantastic opportunity for a reintroduction to the band, with some of their most familiar tracks being present on this selection of songs.
Something Else is the seventh studio album by alternative rock band The Cranberries, released on 28 April 2017, through BMG. The album, which features “unplugged” and orchestral versions of ten previously released singles and three new songs, was recorded with the Irish Chamber Orchestra at the University of Limerick. The album cover is a re-enactment of the photo that features on the band’s 1994 LP, No Need to Argue; with the four members each in exactly the same positions. The backdrop, however, is a darker green as opposed to No Need to Argue’s stark white and the band is sitting on a different sofa.
The lead single from the album, an acoustic version of the band’s 1993 hit “Linger”, was released on 16 March 2017. The same day, “Why” was also released.
Something Else is the band’s final album released during lead singer Dolores O’Riordan’s lifetime.
