The Cranberries announced earlier this week a new deal with Cooking Vinyl, who will release the band’s new record, their first studio album since 2001.

The band split in 2003 but started playing together again after reuniting for an acoustic performance when frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan received an honouree degree at Dublin’s Trinity College in 2009. The new record will be called ‘Roses’ and is set for a February 2012 release. Cooking Vinyl will handle distribution worldwide with the exception of the US, where it will be released by Downtown Records.

O’Riordan told CMU: “Having recorded two albums with various different musicians during our hiatus, I could clearly see that Noel and Mike have a unique way of creating chords and Ferg keeps it together in a subtle way. We had a blast in the studio, [producer] Stephen [Street] was in his zone and it came together rather quickly. There is a sense of rejuvenation in the group, a freshness”.
