The Cranberries are releasing their eighth and final album in less than a month, and on Tuesday, the band shared another song off In The End. “Wake Me When It’s Over” sees the Irish rockers’ late singer Dolores O’Riordan declare in the chorus, “Fighting’s not the answer/ Fighting’s not the cure/ It’s eating you like cancer/ It’s killing you for sure” before pleading, “So wake me when it’s over.”
“Wake Me When It’s Over” is the third offering from the upcoming album, following “The Pressure” and “All Over Now.” In The End is slated for an April 26 release.
The Cranberries were hard at work on the album when O’Riordan tragically drowned in a hotel bath tub in London on January 15, 2018. Her band mates agreed to release the record following her passing; however, decided to call it quits after it came out despite people suggesting they continue on with a new singer.
“It’s come up as well, ‘Well, find another singer,’” lead guitarist Noel Hogan recently told Rolling Stone. “I don’t think people who say that fully get it. Maybe they think they’re being nice or something. It’s not something we’re ever going to entertain. I think the band accomplished a lot, and I think we’ll leave it on a high with this album.”
