i found out dolores o’riordon died when i was visiting new orleans, and i was in the midst of preparing for a huge video shoot and a show. i texted jherek the minute i found out. this moment called to us, loudly. jherek had already done an arrangement of “zombie” a few years ago, and my mind was made up before even considering which songs to pick, and before going to the internet to ask for people’s favorites: “zombie” and “no need to argue”. these two songs were the perfect pieces of music to cry goodbye to this incredible woman. read the full backstory here.
100% of proceeds from digital downloads go to Chernobyl Children International (www.chernobyl-international.com), a charity close to dolores’ heart. read more about the making of these songs and support the creation of MORE ART on patreon:www.patreon.com/posts/quartet-for-no-16600841
