The Cranberries released the final song recorded with their late singer Delores O’Riordan prior to her unfortunate passing in last year. The track ‘In The End’ was the final recording of O’Riordan prior to her tragic death, and it’s final song their upcoming album of the same name, due out on April 26th. You can stream it below.
“What a way to finish the record. To have ‘In The End’ as the last song is just perfect,” says drummer Fergal Lawler in a statement on Consequence of Sound. “Lyrically it is self-explanatory,” adds guitarist Noel Hogan. “It speaks for itself, it just is a lovely feeling and it’s a gorgeous song.”
The song is immoderately moving and touching considering now that O’Riordan has passed, as the song is so self-reflective. It shows off her graceful tones, lyrical reach, and ability to capture the human spirit in such a sincere way.
