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."
Hi All, Dolores here. Feeling good! I did my first bit of gigging in months at the weekend, performed a few songs at the Billboard annual staff holiday party in New York with the house band. Really enjoyed it! Happy Christmas to all our fans!! Xo
Stars like James Corden, Josh Groban and more took to social media to pay tribute to the legendary Irish singer.
I once met Delores O’Riordan when I was 15. She was kind and lovely, I got her autograph on my train ticket and it made my day. She had the most amazing voice and presence. So sorry to hear that she’s passed away today x
My first time hearing Dolores O'Riordan's voice was unforgettable. It threw into question what a voice could sound like in that context of Rock. I'd never heard somebody use their instrument in that way. Shocked and saddened to hear of her passing, thoughts are with her family.
Absolutely shocked to hear about the passing of Dolores O'Riordan! @The_Cranberries gave us our first big support when we toured with them around France years ago! Thoughts are with her family and friends
