(C) 1999 The Island Def Jam Music Group
"Promises" is a rock song by Irish band The Cranberries. It is the first single from the band's fourth album, Bury the Hatchet, released in 1999. The song was the only single from the album to chart in the US and the last single before their hiatus. The song, which has a heavy rock beat with strident lead guitar, deals with the subject of divorce.
A music video involving a cowboy confronting a witch/scarecrow hybrid, directed by Olivier Dahan, was released to promote the single.
It became their ninth and last UK Top 40 hit, charting at number 13.
