Dolores O'Riordan of The Cranberries has been taking a hiatus from her band for almost 4 years and throughout the length of time "Are You Listening?" comes out in the other side. Coming to the surface with jet black and shoulder-length hair, Dolores is in the making of her solo career.
The Irish singer recently promoted her solo work in Hong Kong. Speaking upon her record she said, "A lot of these songs just came from day-to-day experiences. And it was a very natural, kind of organic process," she said. She also continued that she tried many different instruments and beats.
Solo career aside, Dolores also indicated the come back of The Cranberries by simply saying "maybe in the future." Pretty much she is still enjoying what she is doing now despite the longing to work with her band mates again.
"Are You Listening?" is due May 4 in Republic of Ireland, May 7 in Europe and May 15 in North America with "Ordinary Day" as the first single to be released in late April.
The Cranberries is an Irish alternative rock band that was popular back in 90s. Though not officially disbanded, they have come to a vacuum since 2003. Each of the members have been pursuing solo career onwards.
