The Cranberries’ ‘No Need To Argue’ Remastered and Expanded on September 18

The Cranberries' 'No Need To Argue' will be remastered and expanded, including demos and covers, set to be released September 18.

The Cranberries’ second album No Need To Argue will get celebratory treatment this September. Island Records/UMe announce today the release of remastered and expanded versions of the sophomore ’94 LP on September 18. Noted as the band’s biggest selling album, with global sales passing 17 million and holding the acclaimed single “Zombie,” the expanded version provides demos, covers, and much needed closure for fans.

The expanded 2CD and digital versions of No Need To Argue include a remaster of the album and three B-sides: “Away,” “I Don’t Need,” and “So Cold In Ireland” from the original tapes. Also included are 19 previously unreleased tracks including two songs not officially released in any format: “Yesterday’s Gone” — recorded unplugged for MTV in New York in 1995 — and a demo of “Serious,” which until now has only existed as a low quality live bootleg on YouTube. The 2CD edition features previously unseen photographs taken from the album photo sessions.

The expanded 2LP features the remastered album plus three B-sides and extra tracks “Yesterday’s Gone” and a cover of the Carpenters “(They Long To Be) Close to You.”

Both the 2LP and the 2CD sets include a 5,000 word essay on the history of the album written by the band’s archivist Eoin Devereux, who previously wrote the sleeve notes for the reissue of their debut album Uncertain.

And what comes on the heels of another milestone achieved by the band: the video for “Zombie” joined the 1 billion club on YouTube, making The Cranberries the only Irish band to achieve this feat.
