OCEAN SPRAY Released June 2001. The title was inspired by the death of James' mother from cancer in 1999. The title refers to the brand of Cranberry juice that she drank in hospital. It is the first recorded James Dean Bradfield written lyric. James says "When people are in hospital they're told to drink lots of Cranberry juice because of infection, and my mum would say "Go and get us some of that Ocean Spray Cranberry juice". There is an indelible strength in the human spirit if you can convince yourself that Ocean Spray will go towards keeping you alive."
