The late Dolores O’Riordan’s massive vocals truly serve as the centre of the new Cranberries track “Wake Me When It’s Over,” which was released today.
Lead guitarist Noel Hogan describes the track as “very much a classic Dolores song,” according to the Rolling Stone, as her distinctive vocal tone takes the lead. O’Riordan pushes the track forward with her powerful roars as she belts heart-wrenching lyrics that, after her death, almost feel foreboding, such as: “It’s eating you like cancer/ It’s killing you for sure/ Wake me when it’s over.”

Their final album In The End is set for release on April 26th.
