On the one-year anniversary of the death of Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, the surviving members of the band announced their final album, Rolling Stone reported.
"In the End" is the band's eighth album and is a collection of songs O'Riordan worked on before her death in a London hotel room on Jan. 15, 2018. She was 46. O'Riordan died by drowning due to alcohol intoxication, according to an inquest at Westminster Coroner's Court, the Limerick Leader reported.
The group shared the new album’s first single, “All Over Now.”
In a Facebook post, band members Mike Hogan, Noel Hogan and Fergal Lawler said the album was being released "in honor of our dear friend and bandmate, Dolores."
"I can't think of a more fitting way to commemorate the first anniversary of Dolores' passing and to celebrate her life than to announce to the world the release of her final album with the band," said O'Riordan's mother, Eileen O'Riordan, in a statement to Rolling Stone.
O'Riordan and the Cranberries rose to fame with their 1993 album, "Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?" which sold more than 40 million records.
Riordan and band mate Noel Hogan began working on the songs that would ultimately appear on band’s final album while touring in May 2017, the magazine reported.
"In the End" can be preordered and will be released April 26 via BMG, according to Rolling Stone.
