According to The Guardian, Cruise’s husband, Edward Grinnan, shared the news in a Facebook post late Thursday.

“For those of you who go back, I thought you might want to know that I said [goodbye] to my wife, Julee Cruise, today,” he wrote to members of a B-52s fan group. “She left this realm on her own terms. No regrets. She is at peace.”

Although Grinnan’s post didn’t specify how Cruise died, The Guardian reported that she had lupus.

In 1986, Cruise collaborated with Lynch for the first time on “Blue Velvet,” according to the newspaper. She later sang a vocal version of the “Twin Peaks” theme “Falling,” for which Lynch wrote the lyrics, and two songs on the 1990 TV show’s soundtrack, NME reported. She released four albums during her career: “Floating Into the Night” (1989), “The Voice of Love” (1993), “The Art of Being a Girl” (2002) and “My Secret Life” (2011).

Cruise also gained fame as a B52s tour stand-in for band member Cindy Wilson from 1992 to 1999, Rolling Stone reported.

“Having had such a varied music career, she often said that the time she spent as a B filling in for Cindy while she was having a family was the happiest time of her performing life,” Grinnan wrote on Facebook. “She will be forever grateful to them. When she first stepped up to the mic with Fred [Schneider] and Kate [Pierson], she said it was like joining the Beatles. She will love them always and never forget their travels together around the world. I played her ‘Roam’ during her transition. Now she will roam forever. Rest In Peace, my love, and love to you all.”
