This song will be featured on a covers album I’m releasing later this summer, but I wanted to share this particular track now as a tribute to one of my favorite singers of all time, Dolores O’Riordan.
I hope I’ve done it justice.
You can get it here now if you’d like:
We recorded it in an abandoned church in Brooklyn. Even though “Zombie” is a heavy song, I wanted to record it light and slow, because it’s such a sad song to me.
My sister gave me the ‘No Need To Argue’ CD when I was in the sixth grade. “Zombie” was the first song I learned to play on guitar. I listened to the song on repeat, morning noon and night, and I was entranced by Dolores’ vocals and the way the lyrics made me feel both powerful and vulnerable at the same time.
Rest In Peace, Dolores.
