El-P of Run The Jewels, Steve Albini and others have shared tributes to Low's Mimi Parker after it was revealed yesterday (6 November) that she died aged 55.

Yesterday (6 November) Mimi Parker's husband and Low bandmate Alan Sparhawk revealed on socials that "she passed away last night, surrounded by family and love, including yours." Parker was 55, and had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2020.

Sparhawk added, "Keep her name close and sacred. Share this moment with someone who needs you. Love is indeed the most important thing."

Last month Sparhawk shared a statement cancelling Low's UK and European tour dates in November due to "recent developments and changes" with Parker's cancer treatment.

Following Parker's passing, El-P of Run The Jewels, Steve Albini, Mogwai's Stuart Braithwaite, Okkervil River's Will Sheff, Ben Watt, Maxïmo Park's Paul Smith and more have paid tribute to the late musician on Twitter.
