Dublin band Pillow Queens have shared a cover of the Cranberries’ ‘When You’re Gone’, from the 1996 album To the Faithful Departed. Their rendition appears on Salvation – Inspired by the Cranberries for Pieta, a forthcoming collection of Cranberries covers from contemporary Irish artists including Sinead O’Connor, Kodaline, and more. The album is out October 1 via Universal Music Ireland/RTÉ 2FM, with proceeds benefitting Pieta House, a charity that provides free, professional one-on-one therapy to people who are in suicidal distress. Check out Pillow Queens’ take on ‘When You’re Gone’ below.
