[Free MP3] The Cranberries - Show Me The Way

After almost a decade The Cranberries are releasing Roses, a new studio album in February. The band worked on much of the new record in Limerick and Toronto with producer Stephen Street. Lead singer Dolores O'Riordan tells Billboard, "It's kind of picking up where we left off... The whole thing was very lovely. It really came together really nicely. A lot of the tracks were written without really thinking about it. They just came." "It's really cool, the chemistry," O'Riordan continued. "It's really just right. There's something there when we're together that's really good. It's not something that money can buy. It's not really something anyone can really emulate. It's got to do with energy and chemistry and that kind of thing. It's like putting on a perfect pair of shoes. It just fits." Expect Roses to drop on Valentines Day 2012. Grab a free download of the first single Show Me The Way below.
