Sound of the Nation

Salvation.

Salvation.

And the winner is…

In the summer of 2020 we announced a brand new album release for 2021. Titled “Salvation” it is a collection of songs by the Cranberries covered by the very best of contemporary Irish artists including Moncrieff, Sinead O’Connor and Wyvern Lingo and released at home and internationally by Universal Music Ireland, available through streaming, download, cd and limited edition vinyl.

Sales of Salvation will raise funds for Pieta House.

There was just one thing missing.

The artwork for the album cover.

And that’s where you came in…

We asked you to send us in your designs for what you’d like to see on the cover of “Salvation”. And you didn’t let us down. The entries flooded in from all across the country. The standard was incredible. And the pressure was on for judges from Universal Music Ireland and from The Cranberries.

But… we have a winner!

The artist who wins the prize of seeing their artwork on the sleeve of “Salvation” is… Sam Dermody. 

He’s 20, hails from Freshford in Co. Kilkenny and he’s a third year graphics student in Waterford IT.

STUNNING work!
