Singer Julee Cruise, best known for her work with David Lynch on ‘Twin Peaks’ and ‘Blue Velvet’, has died aged 65.
Cruise’s husband, Edward Grinnan, confirmed the news in a Facebook post Thursday evening.
“She left this kingdom on her own terms,” he wrote of his late wife. “No regrets. She’s at peace. I played her [the B-52s song] Roam during his transition. Now she will wander forever. Rest in peace, my love, and I love you all.”
Grinnan later told NPR that his wife died by suicide and battled “lupus, depression, and alcohol and drug addiction.”

Lynch shared a video on YouTube when he heard the news of Cruise’s death on Friday.
“I just learned that the great Julee Cruise passed away,” he said. “Very sad news. So maybe now is a good time to appreciate all the great music she’s made and remember her as a great musician, a great singer, and a great To be human.”
Cruise was born in 1965 in Creston, Iowa and worked with Lynch for her album “The Voice of Love”, released in 1993. She then took a break from music and her next album, “The Art of Being a Girl, “was only released in 2002.
