The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan has died suddenly at the age of 46, her publicist has confirmed.
The Irish musician, originally from Limerick, led the band to international success in the 90s with singles including Linger and Zombie.
A statement from her publicist said: "The lead singer with the Irish band The Cranberries was in London for a short recording session.
"No further details are available at this time."
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said the police were called to a hotel in Park Lane at 09:05 GMT on Monday, where "a woman in her mid-40s" was pronounced dead at the scene.
The police have confirmed that the death is not being treated as suspicious and said a report was being compiled for the coroner.
Her current band mates in The Cranberries - Noel Hogan, Fergal Lawler, and Mike Hogan - paid tribute to the lead singer on social media.
The message said: "She was an extraordinary talent and we feel very privileged to have been part of her life from 1989."
Her publicist added: "Family members are devastated to hear the news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time."
The parish priest from her home town Friarstown, in Limerick, said her funeral would take place in Ireland.
"Her family are still waiting for more details to come from London about her death," said Ballybricken and Bohermore parish priest Fr James Walton.
"The plan is for her to be buried here at home. When that will be will depend on when her body is released."
