TMZ has obtained a voicemail late Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan left for her longtime friend and label exec, Dan Waite, on January 15th — the day she unexpectedly passed away — which also happened to be the day she was set to record a cover of The Cranberries’ song “Zombie” with Bad Wolves.
TMZ were told the voicemail’s time stamp was 1:12 AM GMT in London … and, as you can hear, Dan — who set up the collab — is clearly mentioned in the audio. Dolores also says she loved Bad Wolves’ version of “Zombie” … adding it “sounds f****** terribly good.”
Clearly, she was excited to get in the studio — but, unfortunately, she never made it. As we reported … The Cranberries singer was found dead just hours later in her hotel. Her cause of death has yet to be released — police have only said she died suddenly.
Reports surfaced Dolores may have taken her own life, especially because she had extreme bouts with depression. If it turns out to be the case, it would be eerily similar to Chris Cornell’s death … where his wife said he was in a great mood hours before he died.
