On March 1, 1993, The Cranberries released their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We? Now, the band has announced it will release a special, 25th anniversary edition of the album—which will include previously unreleased material—sometime later this year.

The original plan was to release the reissue around the same time as the album’s anniversary, but the project was delayed after frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan’s sudden passing this January.

According to a Facebook post, the band explained that O’Riordan had not only been working with them on this anniversary reissue since Summer 2017 but she also recorded vocals for a new Cranberries album. The surviving members of the band have decided it’s best to “push ahead” and finish both projects.

The band is aiming to have the Everybody Else reissue out sometime this year, with the new album being (hopefully) released sometime early next year. See the full statement below.
