Like you, I’ve been mourning the sudden passing of The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan all week long. Songs like Linger, Dreams, Zombie, and so many more are timeless classics, and they’ve inspired so many other artists and bands we love today. Her voice was a blessing, one of the most extraordinary and unique rock voices to have graced our existence. Dolores O’Riordan was about to hit the studio with Los Angeles alt rockers Bad Wolves to re-record a new version of hit single Zombie, but we’ll never get to hear how that would’ve sounded. We do, however, get to listen to Bad Wolves’ cover of Zombie, which they’ve now released in her memory, with all proceeds going to O’Riordan’s three children. 

“It was the greatest honor to know she liked our version and wanted to sing on it,” says Bad Wolves singer Tommy Vext. “We’re deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Dolores and by the fact that she’s leaving behind three children so we are donating the proceeds from the song to her kids.” Bad Wolves’ electrifying nu-metal styled rock cover emphasizes the original’s sheer power and ferocious strength. Stream/purchase and support the track, here. Bad Wolves will be releasing a debut album later this year.

I’m sure you all remember Natalia Kill’s wicked hit Zombie from 2011, right? I mean, it’s a sick tune, and there really aren’t many songs about loving a Zombie (whether you want to take it figuratively or literally). AGLORY, a Parisian production duo who’s fresh on our radar, affords us a re-visit of the song with their total rework of song. Tell me this these breakdowns, that dirty bass, and those booming beats aren’t ravishing. Turn it up with some good speakers or headphones and you’ll feel this buzzing, sawing, and whirring track move right through the whole of your being. Industrial meets tech house and gritty grime meets electro on this gripping adaptation. Check out more of these French visionaries’ music on Soundcloud, here.

I’m pretty sure I lost a part of myself in Austin, Texas newcomer Missio’s debut single I Run To You late last year. The song is laced with such exquisite emotion and brilliant, spacious production. Lose a part of yourself within that song below, too, but make sure you also check out Missio’s latest bewitching offering, a cover of The Cranberries’ Zombie. His ghostly rendition of the song is millions of light years away from the classic original. The slow crawling, forlorn track is skin tingling, shiver inducing haunting, on top of gut wrenching beautiful. 

OFFICIAL VID: Cat Power – Cherokee

Chan Marshall has made a huge statement with her return to the scene. Latest album Sun sounds mind blowing good so far. I’ve yet to pop the full album in for a listen from start to finish, so I reserve final judgement, but I’m digging each song that has been previewed up till now. Today, Cat Power released a self-directed video for wonderful, soulful lead track Cherokee. Her husky, folksy vocals are heavenly on the melancholic tune. The artist decided to go with current pop culture trends and create a zombie related video.
