Dolores O'Riordan was scheduled to record vocals on our rendition of “Zombie” on the very day of her unexpected passing. This is an incredibly personal song & she loved our version. A portion of the proceeds from the song will go to her children. https://t.co/4KYTYxHIVb— Bad Wolves (@badwolves) January 19, 2018
The video, accompanying the single, features an unreachable woman fully-realized in O’Riordan’s iconic gold from the original “Zombie” video.
Throughout the clip, she and frontman Tommy Vext try to touch each other but cannot. As they are doing so, she leaves golden handprints with each attempt to touch.
The video has now been viewed over 3.5 million times.
