The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan has died in London at the age of 46, her publicist has confirmed. “The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session,” her publicist Lindsey Holmes said, reports the Associated Press. “No further details are available at this time.” The Cranberries rose to international fame in the ’90s with the release of their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, featuring one of their biggest singles, “Linger.” They have sold over 40 million albums worldwide and are best known for their now classic songs including “Zombie,” “Dreams,” “Ode To My Family” and more. The band split up in 2003 but reunited several years later. Scotland Yard announced on Tuesday that the sudden death of 46-year-old Dolores O’Riordan is “not being treated as suspicious.”
The Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan died in London on Monday just hours before she was scheduled to record vocals on a version of her band’s 1994 hit “Zombie” by metal act Bad Wolves. Bad Wolves will release their debut album on Eleven Seven later this year, and lead singer Kovac sent their cover of “Zombie” to O’Riordan for consideration. The Cranberries singer offered to lend her vocals to the tune.
