TMZ.com recently obtained a copy of a voice message that Cranberries lead singer Dolores O’Riordan left for her friend and label executive Dan Waite which was timestamped at 1:12am on January 15th in London. The singer was scheduled to hit the studio a few hours later to record a cover of the Cranberries’ “Zombie” with Bad Wolves. Unfortunately O’Riordan passed away and fans are still waiting for answers as a coroner is yet to release an official cause of death.
The singer, who was 46 years old, was upbeat during the 30 second voice message and was excited to record the cover. She said, “Hi Dan, it’s Dolores, I’m in London. I’m at the Park Hyatt Hilton . . . Actually, I think it’s f**king awesome! It sounds f**king terribly good!”
The singer also invited Waite to come to the studio later that morning to hear the finished product and asked him to say, ‘Hi,’ to his wife, Irene.
The Cranberries plan to release a new album which was recorded with O’Riordan later this year as well as a 25th anniversary reissue of their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It So Why Can’t We?.
