Andy Rourke (the Smiths) Talks with Dolores O’Riordan (the Cranberries) for the Talkhouse Music Podcast

The duo have a new song to share from D.A.R.K.

On this week’s episode of the Talkhouse Music Podcast, Andy Rourke of the Smiths and Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries sit down to discuss their new supergroup, D.A.R.K, and we give their song, “High Fashion,” its world premiere.

The new bandmates and old friends talk Dolores’ teenage Smiths fandom, Stephen Street (who helmed production duties on iconic records for both groups), initial reaction from their legendary bands’ diehard fans to the new project, and getting pelted onstage at festivals back in the day by a half-eaten apple and a packet of sausages adorned with the note “Meat is Murder.” Take a listen and subscribe now on iTunes or Stitcher to stay in the loop on future Talkhouse Podcasts.

NB: If you can’t contain your excitement and need to hear “High Fashion” before the talk, skip ahead to 4:30. We don’t blame you.

D.A.R.K. is the unlikely collaboration between Dolores O’Riordan (the Cranberries), Andy Rourke (the Smiths) and Olé Koretsky.
