October 13 2007

The vocalist of the famous Irish group The Cranberries Dolores O'Riordan is traveling to Moscow on November 10. She will present a new program, which includes songs from the debut solo album, «Are You Listening?», Which appeared in May this year.

"This album - a new chapter in my life - said Dolores. - Now my life is not like the one I led 10 years ago, it has more wisdom and understanding. It's time to return to the music. "

As noted by the singer, describes the new album more experimental sound than the fact that you could hear on albums by The Cranberries. The work on «Are You Listening?» Used a variety of tools and bits. Of the 32 new songwriting for the album were selected by only 12. Performer for a long time preparing for the release of the album: A total of work on it took over 4 years. Perhaps you can explain it to Dolores employment, because in addition to the musical career she has to devote time to children. The singer not only spends much time with his family, but even working as a volunteer in the school where her children attend.

Recall that the last album, The Cranberries «Wake Up And Smell The Coffee» was released in 2001, and in 2004 the band announced the departure on leave. Many said, that in fact the collective collapse. Since then, Dolores made itself felt only a few times: recorded the song «Ave Maria» movie "The Temptation of Christ" and wrote music for the film Evilenko. She also took part in the recording plate magnificent singer Zucchero «Zucchero & Co» (2005). In 2006, the singer played a cameo in the film Frank Korac "Click: remote control for life" where she sang one of the most famous hits of The Cranberries early period - «Linger».

Responding to the concern of many fans of the team The Cranberries, Dolores says, that does not exclude the possibility of reunion, but still enjoys solo work.

Critics say the new record was remarkably successful: "The album develops as a fascinating novel - no one like the track, the atmosphere and the mood always changing. Along with the minor songs on the album lacks the dynamic tracks with sharp guitars in the spirit of the best hits of The Cranberries. Drama and romantic charm of the new songs Dolores does not concede to the old - the years her talent did not faded. "

Album «Are You Listening?» To be very personal, because it is based on significant events in the life of the singer. The song "Black Widow" refers to the period when her mother in law died of cancer. The song "Apple of my eye" devoted husband of Dolores, and a delightful "Ordinary Day" (Beautiful Girl) was written in honor of the birth of her third child - daughter, Dakota.

In the disc recording participated very good musicians, incidentally, not last names in the music world. This is Steve Demarchi (Steve Demarchi) - guitar, backing vocals (ex-Alias), Marco Mendoza (Marco Mendoza) - bass, backing vocals (ex-Thin Lizzy), Graham Hopkins (Graham Hopkins) - drums, percussion, backing Vocals (ex-Therapy?), Danny Demarchi (Denny Demarchi) - keyboards, guitar, flute, backing vocals. Is it possible to write a bad album, in collaboration with musicians? ...

Eyewitnesses have had time to attend concerts of the former soloist of The Cranberries, argue that since the group's existence, nothing has changed: Speeches Dolores still represent incredible action on energy. So, Dolores Mary Eileen O'Riordan Burton (namely, the name sounds so full singer) will perform in the capital on November 10. In addition to songs from the debut solo album "Are You Listening?" the concert will be performed and well-known hits from the legacy of The Cranberries.
