In the year since the tragic passing of Dolores O’Riordan, the voice of The Cranberries, the band’s remaining members have been working on completing the unfinished projects that were in progress at the time of O’Riordan’s death. The Cranberries had been working on a new album in 2017, for which O’Riordan had already recorded vocals. The band had plans to finish the album early last year, but it was put on hold until they eventually came to the decision to go ahead with the release. Called In the End, The Cranberries’ eighth and final album will be released on April 26.

Now, Japanese Breakfast’s rendition of “Dreams” has been properly recorded — the band just released the cover as part of the Spotify Singles series. The release also includes a live recording of “Road Head,” off JBrekkie’s 2017 album Soft Sounds From Another Planet. Continue reading →
