Cranberries Singer Dolores O'Riordan Dies at 46

Dolores O'Riordan—singer of The Cranberries—died today at 46 years old. O'Riordan's publicist released a short statement confirming the Irish singer's "sudden" death in London, where the band had been recording, but no other details have been released at this time.

The Cranberries were one of the most popular and successful bands of the '90s, having achieved four top 20 albums and selling over 40 million records worldwide. You can hear O'Riordan on the band's biggest hits, like "Linger" and "Zombie," as well as on the two solo albums she released during The Cranberries' early-2000s hiatus.

This is a developing story. We'll update this page as more information becomes available.
