The Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan has died in London at the age of 46, her publicist has confirmed.

"The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session," her publicist Lindsey Holmes said, reports the Associated Press. "No further details are available at this time."

Holmes also included: "Family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time."

The Cranberries rose to international fame in the '90s with the release of their debut album, Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can't We?, featuring one of their biggest singles, "Linger."

They have sold over 40 million albums worldwide and are best known for their now classic songs including "Zombie," "Dreams," "Ode To My Family" and more.

The band split up in 2003 but reunited several years later.
