The 46-year-old Irish singer was in London to record vocals for a cover of Cranberries hit Zombie by Los Angeles rock band Bad Wolves.

Dan Waite of music label Eleven Seven said O’Riordan left him a voice message early Monday saying she was looking forward to the recording. He said, “she sounded full of life, was joking and excited to see me and my wife this week.”

The Cranberries’ 1990s hits included Dream, Linger and Zombie.
