Audio sample

"When You're Gone" is a rock ballad recorded by Irish band The Cranberries. It is the third single from their third studio album To the Faithful Departed (1996). The music video was directed by Karen Bellone and was released at the end of 1996. The song was first played during the North American leg of the No Need to Argue Tour in Autumn 1994. In 2017, the song was released as an acoustic, stripped down version on the band's Something Else album.[1] The song was played at the end of Dolores O'Riordan's funeral on 23 January 2018, following her sudden death a week before in London at the age of 46.[2] It was also played by the majority of Irish radio stations at the same time during the funeral [3]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Karen Bellone. It is mostly in black and white.[4] It features the "yellow room" from the album cover burning over a body of water.
