Julee Cruise, a singer whose ethereal music made David Lynch's movies more dramatic, has died at the age of 65.

Edward Grinnan commented on Facebook: "She departed on her own terms." None. She's calm... During her transformation, I played Roam. She'll forever roam. Rest, my love.”

Lynch penned lyrics for Cruise's vocal version, which hit No. 7 in the UK, Europe, and Australia.

Falling, created by Angelo Badalamenti, was the theme of David Lynch's 1990 TV show Twin Peaks.

It was on her first album, which came out in 1989 and was called "Floating Into the Night."

1956-born Cruise began working with Lynch on Blue Velvet, which featured her Badalamenti collaboration Mysteries of Love.

Her albums were sporadic: The Voice of Love (1993), The Art of Being a Girl (2002), and My Secret Life (2011).

Her songwriting skills have won her a passionate cult following, who are drawn to Cruise's innocent and pure delivery.

In 2018, she said she had been diagnosed with lupus and that she was in pain all the time.
