Tomorrow

Songfacts®:

  • After taking several years long break to pursue solo careers, Irish rock band The Cranberries reunited in 2009. Following a North America and European tour the quartet recorded their sixth studio album, Roses at the Metalworks Studios in Toronto (Canada) with producer Stephen Street, who previously collaborated with the band on their first, second and fifth sets.
  • This is the first single from the album. The song finds frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan reflecting on how we should follow our instincts more and was inspired by real-life concerns of parenthood and mortality. "It's about the way we sometimes hyper over-escalate things in our minds, overthink things when sometimes spontaneity and just jumping in is better," she explained to Billboard magazine. "Tomorrow you might not have that moment back again. So it's really about moving on and also about kind of looking at the younger generation and how they worry about all kinds of silly things. They don't think they're silly, but when you're older you know better."
