BWW Exclusive: Watch Lena Hall Belt Out The Cranberries' 'Linger'
Check out this new video of Lena Hall singing "Linger" by The Cranberries -- brought to you exclusively by BroadwayWorld!
The fourth edition of the groundbreaking new music and video series Lena Hall Obsessed from the Tony Award winner and Grammy nominee. Obsessed: The Cranberries - exploring the lyrical songs of the Irish rock band - is now available at www.LenaHallObsessed.com as well as iTunes and Amazon. A special trailer for the new EP is available HERE.
A singular artist who authentically and explosively brings the worlds of Rock and Broadway together, Hall is releasing a monthly series of EPs over the course of 2018. Obsessed will consist of 12 EPs, one released on the first Friday of every month, and each featuring stripped-down, emotionally-intensive covers of one artist or band with whom Lena is "obsessed." Performance music videos have been created for all 54 songs in the series and a new music video will premiere every week in 2018. Obsessed is produced by Justin Craig, Lena Hall and Kurt Deutsch.
Obsessed: The Cranberries features four introspective but passionate tracks from the beloved band. The collection starts with the blockbuster "Zombie," written for their 1994 seven-times platinum Top 10 sophomore album No Need to Argue. Two lesser known songs - "Free to Decide," a plaintive ballad, and "Salvation," a scintillating guitar jam - originate from the group's third album To The Faithful Departed from 1996, another Top 10 recording. Closing the EP is another of their signature numbers, "Linger" from The Cranberries' 1993 debut studio album. The songs have music and lyrics by the band's late lead vocalist Dolores O'Riordan, except for "Linger" and "Salvation" which feature music by O'Riordan and Noel Hogan.
Lena will celebrate Obsessed with a New York performance at Pianos on Monday, April 30 at 7:00 PM. Tickets are available HERE.
