Rest in peace, Dolores O'Riordan. 

The Cranberries singer died suddenly in London, England, on Monday, ET confirms. She was 46. 

In a statement to ET, O'Riordan's rep said that she was in London "for a short recording session." 

“The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session. No further details are available at this time,” the statement reads. “Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

O'Riordan, who enjoyed success with The Cranberries with 90s hits like "Linger" and "Zombie," performed for the last time in December. In November, she recorded the theme song for Angela's Christmas, a short film which aired on Irish TV the next month. 

The Cranberries canceled a string of shows last year, revealing on social media that O'Riordan was having a tough recovery from an ongoing back problem. However, on Dec. 20, the singer tweeted from the band's official account that she was "feeling good." 

Stars like James Corden, Josh Groban and more took to social media to pay tribute to the legendary Irish singer. 

O'Riordan is survived by her three kids, 20-year-old son Taylor, 16-year-old daughter Molly and 12-year-old daughter Dakota.
