Leon Russell, the songwriter behind some of rock music’s top hits like “A Song For You” and “Delta Lady,” has died. He was 74. 

Russell’s official website confirmed that the musician “passed away in his sleep” in Nashville on Sunday. 

Though an official cause of death has not been released, Russell underwent surgery after suffering a heart attack this past July and was reportedly still in recovery, according to The Associated Press. In 2010, he was also treated for heart failure and underwent surgery for a brain fluid leak. 

The AP noted that Russell had planned to continue touring in January, citing a representative for the musician.
