Dolores O’Riordan: Irish and international singer of The Cranberries

Statement released by her publicist confirms The Cranberries frontwoman died suddenly, aged 46, while in London for a recording session

Irish singer, songwriter and musician Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today, at the age of 46. A statement released by her publicist confirmed The Cranberries frontwoman was in London for a short recording session, but that, “No further details are available at this time.” The statement went on to say that: “Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

Irish alternative rock band The Cranberries found worldwide commercial success in the 90s with their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?, which featured the single Linger. The follow-up No Need To Argue became their best-selling LP, propelled by its lead single Zombie, which topped the charts in five countries.

Songwriting offer our condolences to Dolores’ family and friends. We had the pleasure of interviewing the singer last year, when she told us about her extraordinary career and approach to writing songs.
