The Cranberries will mark the one year anniversary of Dolores O'Riordan's death by releasing the first song from their new album.

The album, titled In the End, features vocals from O'Riordan which were recorded before her sudden death on January 15, 2018.

Band members Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler and Mike Hogan said that they will release the first track from the record on Tuesday.

Writing on Facebook, they said: "After Dolores' devastating and unexpected passing in January 2018, we took some time out and put all plans on hold. As time passed, we began to think about how we might best honour our close friend and bandmate.

"This was a very painful process. We remembered how Dolores had been so energised by the prospect of making this record and getting back out on the road to play the songs live, and realised that the most meaningful thing to do was to finish the album we had started with her. We felt that this is what she would want. We spoke with Dolores' family and they agreed."

They continued: "It was a very emotional process for us. Knowing that we would never get to play these songs live made it even more difficult. There was also an overwhelming sense of finality knowing that this was the last time that we would be in the same studio together working on a Cranberries album.

"We dedicate this album to our dear friend and bandmate Dolores. She will always be with us in her music."

The first song from the new album, All Over Now, will be released on January 15.

The Cranberries band members and O'Riordan's mother Eileen and siblings attended the singer's first anniversary mass in Limerick on Sunday (January 13) along with hundreds of fans from around the world.

The emotional ceremony was held in St Ailbe’s Church, Ballybricken Co Limerick.
