Irish singer-songwriter Dolores O'Riordan, frontwoman of the multi-million selling rock band The Cranberries, died suddenly in London on Monday aged 46, her publicist said. The source added that an official cause of death will probably have to wait for a toxicology report.
O'Riordan died in London, where she was recording, publicist Lindsey Holmes said.
After Zombie, the Cranberries, who were formed in 1989, lost much of their pop audience as their late 1990s albums grew harsher and more concerned with sociopolitical messages than with love songs.
The follow-up, "No Need to Argue", sold in even greater numbers and contained "Zombie", a howl against Northern Ireland's violent troubles that topped singles charts in several countries. O'Riordan's new music project D.A.R.K. had to cancel their first Limerick gig at Dolans Warehouse in 2016, citing her ongoing battle with back pain.

A further set of shows in North America, due to take place in September and October, were cancelled in July.
Irish and international singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly in London today. O'Riordan was known for her lilting mezzo-soprano voice, her emphasized use of yodeling and for her strong Limerick accent.
"Team members acted swiftly to alert the Metropolitan Police and we are co-operating fully with their investigation", a spokesperson said.
Rather than speaking about it, O'Riordon kept the tragic incident to herself, which eventually swallowed her whole into a dark abyss - which translated to depression, suicide, anorexia and bipolar disorder.
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar was among the first to pay tributes, calling O'Riordan "the voice of a generation".
When they met, the Toronto-born Burton was the tour manager for Duran Duran but he wound up taking on O'Riordan's career. The album was released to mostly positive reviews from critics.
Rest In Peace, Dolores O'Riordon - you will be missed.
One of my favorite horror-comedies of the past few decades has been Scott Glosserman's found footage flick Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon. On Boxing Day, she posted on social media that she was headed to Ontario to spend time with her family. They released their latest album, Something Else, in 2017. Her family is very devastated and upset.
The band split in 2003, before getting back together in 2009. "If she wasn't she'd say, 'I'm going to go out for a while, get outside and let you know what I'm doing later, '" Nation said.
