Unreleased songs, recent public appearances and participation on a Christmas movie soundtrack…. Dolores’ so very expected comeback now seems to be a thing!
Being a fan of Dolores O’Riordan means uncertainty. In a good way. We can have no news for months, and then have a crazy week in which new performances, unreleased songs, or old pictures unknown to the fans so far will appear all of a sudden, at the same time. This is what these recent days looked like.
On Sunday we could share with you all the amazing news of Dolores’ performance at Billboard holiday party, where she performed “Linger”: https://www.instagram.com/p/BcvMy9Qli-h/ This is the first time Dolores hits the stage after the cancellation of Something Else European and North American tour, and we are over the moon to see her back and with such a fresh, healthy, youthful look.
This was not the only news, though. As we have already mentioned at our socials, Dolores is singing for the soundtrack of Angela’s Christmas, a Christmas film which will be broadcasted on RTÉ One on Christmas’ Eve and on Christmas Day. You can listen to a fragment of Dolores’ song for the movie in the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gI5nhZkn3Dc&feature=youtu.be
But the big news came today: On Monday, December 18th our team at Dolores O’Riordan Spain found a beautiful unreleased song by Dolores (as JETLAG.NYC ) called “Illusion”, at Soundcloud. It is a sentimental, nostalgic kind of ballad in which Dolores sings accompanied only by an acoustic guitar and whose ending seems to point at the introduction of some innovative, experimental sounds that provides the track with an ultimate personality. At the end of the song we can hear her say “OK, that’s the idea”, for which we can deduce this could be an improvised demo version of some unfinished idea. We are not sure how old this track is, since it was uploaded at Souncloud but published under the signature of “Jetlag.NYC”, for which at first we thought it could have been written months, even years ago. However, after just a few hours from its discovery, the song was removed from Soundcloud. Does this mean we have discovered something new to be released, and which therefore we were not supposed to find yet? Are we witnessing Dolores’ comeback to the music? And, most important: is this comeback closer than we think? It seems that 2018 promises to be a great year for us her fans.
