New Courtney Love Album to be Released Around Christmas
In a recent Jam interview, Courtney Love revealed her upcoming solo album – her second, if you’re keeping track – is scheduled to drop around Christmas. The release, tentatively titled Died Blonde for now, comes out the same time a memoir, with a working title of Last B-tch Standing, hits stores.
About how Died Blonde may sound, Love told the magazine: "It sounds epic. It’s amazing. It’s great. But it’s really hard work."
It’s hard to say which release from the grunge star this follows. Love put out her first solo album, America's Sweetheart, in 2004, and toward the end of the decade, she intended to put out a second release, one called How Dirty Girls Get Clean. Although tracks that Love reportedly wrote in rehab surfaced, the album never came out. By 2010, Hole’s latest lineup – which had none of the original members – put out Nobody’s Daughter.
For Died, Love didn’t assume all songwriting duties: "I have a co-writer now so it’s actually much easier. I think his name is going to be on it but, I don’t know, if I can avoid his name being on it I will happily do that. Basically he sits there and I talk and then somebody transcribes what we talk about and then I go attack what’s on the written page and make it more literate."
Close to a year ago, the mid-1990s Hole lineup (who recorded Celebrity Skin) reunited to perform at Public Assembly in New York. Love with Melissa Auf Der Mauf, guitarist Eric Erlandson, and drummer Patty Schemel played a few of the band’s well-known hits for showing of documentary Hit So Hard.
