When Joshua Ray Walker started working on his upcoming album ‘What Is It Even?’ – his tribute to some of his favorite female artists and songwriters, out August 4th, 2023 via Soundly Music – he didn’t expect that Tenacious D’s Kyle Gass would appear on the record. It was probably even less likely that Gass would provide a recorder solo on the track. But that’s exactly what happened on Walker’s take on The Cranberries’ certified classic. Walker’s other-worldly voice shines on the track, Adam “Ditch” Kurtz’s pedal steel adds some twang, and Gass’ recorder solo mirrors the original’s slide guitar solo.
30 years after forming in Limerick (initially as The Cranberry Saw Us), The Cranberries are set to release their 8th and final album, ‘In The End’. With Stephen Street once again taking producer duties, the eleven-track record brings a remarkable career to a fitting and powerful closure. Announcing the album, the band has shared the first single ‘All Over Now’ that blends rock, alternative and catchy almost pop-sounding melodies to deliver a classic Cranberries sound.
