Irish rockers The Cranberries said they would go ahead with a new album despite the sudden death of singer Dolores O’Riordan in January.

The surviving three members of The Cranberries said that O’Riordan had already recorded vocals for a new album, which the band now hopes to finish and release in early 2019.

The Cranberries said that they also would move forward with a 25th anniversary reissue this year of their debut album, Everyone Else is Doing it, So Why Can’t We?, after putting work on hold following O’Riordan’s death. “After much consideration we have decided to finish what we started,” the band wrote on Facebook.

“We thought about it and decided that as this is something that we started as a band, with Dolores, we should push ahead and finish it.”

The 1993 album proved to be an international success led by Linger, a wistful song about a first kiss.

The reissued edition will be re-mastered and feature previously unreleased material from the era, the band said.

O’Riordan was found dead in a London hotel on January 15 at age 46.
