Lena Hall Sings the Cranberries in New Obsessed EP

Hall celebrates the memory of Dolores O'Riordan in the fourth installment of her musical series.

SKB Records has announced the fourth installment of Lena Hall's Obsessed series, which will pay tribute to the Cranberries in a four-song EP to be released on Friday, April 6.

Obsessed: The Cranberries opens with "Zombie," written for the band's 1994 album No Need to Argue, followed by two lesser-known songs — "Free to Decide" and "Salvation," from the group's third album, To the Faithful Departed. Closing the EP is "Linger," from the Cranberries' 1993 debut studio album. The songs have music and lyrics by the band's late lead vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, with the exception of "Linger" and "Salvation," which feature music by O'Riordan and Noel Hogan.

Previous releases in Hall's Obsessed series have focused on Elton John, Peter Gabriel, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, in which she gave her breakout, Tony-winning performance as Yitzhak in the 2014 Broadway revival. Obsessed will ultimately consist of 12 EPs, each released on the first Friday of every month. Performance music videos have been created for all 54 songs in the series, and a new music video will premiere every week in 2018.

Watch below for a preview of the new EP, available for preorder here.
