The Cranberries revisited Zombie this year when they re-recorded an acoustic version with the Irish Chamber Orchestra for the band’s reworked greatest hits collection Something Else.
“We did it with a quartet, so it’s a lot tamer but it’s still nice,” says O’Riordan. “It’s interesting to do acoustic versions of your songs because it kind of shows that they can stand acoustically as well:
Is it a good song?
Has it a good chorus? Has it a good verse? Does it have a bridge?
“I think when you’re young you have lots of aggression. When you get older it kind of goes away, you get a bit more laid-back. It was fun to go back to it.”
