The Cranberries / No Need To Argue remastered and expanded

The Cranberries / No Need to Argue deluxe edition

Two-CD deluxe and 2LP vinyl

The Cranberries‘ second album No Need to Argue has been remastered and expanded for a double CD and 2LP vinyl release in November.

Originally released in 1994, the album was the band’s commercial peak, with global sales in excess of 17 million. No Need to Argue contains the single ‘Zombie’ which topped charts across Europe (although interestingly, only peaked at 14 in the UK) and was seemingly played endlessly on MTV at the time.

The two-CD deluxe features, on the first disc, a 2020 remaster of the album (“from the original tapes”), three B-sides (‘Away’, ‘I Don’t Need’ and ‘So Cold In Ireland’), a previously unreleased song ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ (which was recorded unplugged for MTV in New York in 1995), a cover of the Carpenters’ ‘(They Long To Be) Close to You’ and a remix of ‘Zombie’. The second CD in this package features nine unreleased demos and eight live tracks.

The 2LP vinyl edition features the remastered album across three sides and five of the six bonus tracks from CD 1 (no remix of ‘Zombie’) on side four.

Both formats include a 5,000 word essay on the history of the album written by the band’s archivist Eoin Devereux.

No Need to Argue is reissued on 13 November 2020 (was 18 September).  A single CD, album-only option, is also available.
