Watch Arcade Fire Cover Cranberries' 'Linger' in Dublin

Arcade Fire covered the Cranberries‘ “Linger” during their Friday concert in Dublin, Ireland, the home country of the Cranberries and their late singer Dolores O’Riordan.

Win Butler and company performed the chorus of the beloved Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We? single before segueing back into Arcade Fire’s “Everything Now,” Pitchfork reports.

O’Riordan died January 15th in her London hotel room at the age of 46. An inquest into O’Riordan’s “unexplained” but “non-suspicious” cause of death had been scheduled for April 3rd. However, the Westminster Coroners Office told the Express UK that the hearing had been rescheduled to an undetermined date. The singer was laid to rest in her native Limerick following a memorial attended by thousands of fans.

In March, the surviving Cranberries announced they were “pushing ahead” with a planned 25th anniversary edition of 1993’s Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We?

“After much consideration we have decided to finish what we started,” the band said in a statement. “We thought about it and decided that as this is something that we started as a band, with Dolores, we should push ahead and finish it. So that’s the plan, to finish the project and get the special 25th anniversary edition album out later this year.”

Paul Simon's 'Graceland' to Receive Dance Remix Album

Eleven dance music artists and DJs – including Paul Oakenfold, Groove Armada and Thievery Corporation – will rework songs from Paul Simon‘s classic Graceland for the upcoming remix album Graceland – The Remixes.

The Simon-approved remix LP – which features all 11 of the Graceland‘s tracks reinterpreted, including two versions of “Homeless” – is due out June 1st on Legacy Recordings/Sony Music.

Graceland – The Remixes also boasts reworkings by Photek, Richy Ahmed, Rich Pinder and a pair of Joris Voorn remixes, as well as Groove Armada’s nearly unrecognizable take on the 1986 single “You Can Call Me Al.”

“What do you say when someone asks you to remix a classic? Well normally, No!” Groove Armada’s Andy Cato said in a statement. “It’s a rule we’ve managed to follow for 20 years. Until we got a call about remixing a track from Graceland. Here was an album…which had opened our ears to a new world of sound. We decided to break the rule because we could choose a tune. In [“You Can Call Me Al”] was a horn riff which we’d been dropping in our sets ever since we tried it at Fais Do-Do’s Ballroom in LA back in 1998 and it created an electric moment of dancefloor unity. So the remix wrote itself and our ace-in-the-pack Horn Drop is now public property.”

Richy Ahmed, who tackles “The Boy in the Bubble,” added, “To say it was an honor to mix one of Paul Simon’s tracks is an understatement. It is one of my favorite tracks ever.”

The remix album also shared five songs prior to its June 1st release, including Oakenfold’s spin on “Crazy Love Vol. II” and MK’s KC Lights Remix of the title track.

Graceland – The Remixes Track List

1. “Homeless (Joris Voorn Final Remix)”
2. “Gumboots (Joyce Muniz Remix)”
3. “I Know What I Know (Sharam’s Motherland Mix)”
4. “Crazy Love, Vol. II (Paul Oakenfold Extended Remix)”
5. “The Boy in the Bubble (Richy Ahmed Remix)”
6. “You Can Call Me Al (Groove Armada Dub Redemption)”
7. “Under African Skies (Rich Pinder/Djoko Vocal Mix)”
8. “Graceland (MK’s KC Lights Remix)”
9. “That Was Your Mother (Gui Boratto Remix)”
10. “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes (Thievery Corporation Remix)”

Megadeth Plot Extras-Packed 'Killing Is My Business' Reissue

Megadeth are marking their 35th anniversary with an extras-packed, deluxe reissue of their 1985 debut, newly dubbed Killing Is My Business … and Business Is Good: The Final Kill. The remastered album, due June 8th, features a new mix that includes some alternate takes, as well as live recordings and demos.

The album, which was notoriously muddy and raw-sounding because the band spent much of its recording budget on drugs, now supposedly conforms to frontman Dave Mustaine’s vision, save a re-recording of the band’s Nancy Sinatra cover, “These Boots.” Engineer Mark Lewis (Trivium, Death Angel) remixed the album, while Ted Jensen remastered it. During the process, Lewis found a number of previously unheard parts of the songs, including a drum performance that was thought to be lost, which are now present.

One major difference from the original release, though, is “These Boots.” Where the original features dirty, hardly feministic lyrics written by Mustaine, this version features the frontman singing songwriter Lee Hazlewood’s original lyrics. Hazlewood objected to Mustaine’s rewrite in the mid-Nineties, and, for years, the song was omitted from the album; a 2002 reissue restored the song with bleeps over Mustaine’s lyrics.

The reissue also includes seven live recordings, from 1986 to 1990, that were pulled off VHS tapes in Mustaine’s attic and the band’s original three-track demo. It also features new artwork that mimics the sculpture of the original cover, as well as flyers and photos from the band’s archive.

“I am just as much amazed at the music we made as I am at the pure fact that we survived it all,” Mustaine said in a statement.

See Bush's Gavin Rossdale, Chris Traynor Perform 'Glycerine,' 'Comedown'

Gavin Rossdale and Chris Traynor, of the alternative rock band Bush, performed an unvarnished mini-set in the latest installment of Rolling Stone’s ‘Take One’ series. The acoustic treatments showcased Rossdale’s vocal range and the raw emotionalism of their rock ballads, new and old. 

Rossdale began with what he called a “super quiet version” of “The Sound of Winter,” from The Sea of Memories, Bush’s 2011 comeback record after a near 10-year hiatus. The stripped down guitar highlighted the mournful rasp in Rossdale’s voice. 

The pair also revisited and reworked hits from Bush’s classic 1994 debut, Sixteen Stone. On “Comedown,” the acoustic version took on a triumphant, lighter tone than the original, as Rossdale proclaimed: “I don’t wanna come back down from this cloud, it’s taken me all this time to find out what I need.” Their softer rendition of “Glycerine” gave the song a deeper sense of introspection. 

Bush’s latest album, Black and White Rainbows, was released in 2017. The band is currently on tour and will embark on a tri-headlining tour with fellow alternative rock bands Stone Temple Pilots and the Cult, which kicks off in July.
