Courtney Love has confirmed that her new album is on the way. The album, tentatively titled "Died Blonde", is coming on December 25. In a recent interview with Canada's JAM! Music, the controversial rocker said that the follow up to her 2004 solo album, "America's Sweetheart", would sound "epic", "amazing" and "great".
"But it's really hard work," she told the site. Love went on to reveal that she worked with fellow Hole member Micko Larkin in the new album. "It's mostly Micko. So Micko's doing like early pre-production and then we'll have somebody else do other production. But he's exceedingly well educated and very well trained in the studio."
In another interview with Billboard, Love said that her album already had "eight recorded songs" in it. She also revealed her plan to release a double A-sided single that will feature songs "Wedding Day" and "California".
" 'Wedding Day's, like, two minutes and 59 seconds. It's a perfect punk song. I wish I had written it when I was 19," she said of her song. "And 'California' is my final bid to write the perfect California song," she added before describing the song as a "really tight punk-pop song" with "a little bit of a [Red Hot Chili Peppers] tinge to it."
In the interview, Love also talked about her forthcoming memoir, reportedly entitled "Last B***h Standing". Love told fans that she wouldn't talk about her sex life in the memoir, which is set to be published by Harper Collins on the same day her album comes out.
"There's some salacious things about myself, but there's certainly no kissy-telly. I don't do kiss-tell. It's not that. In fact, you'd think I was the Virgin Mary from his book so far -but that doesn't mean there's not juicy parts in it. It's just juicy parts about ME, not other people," she explained.
