Courtney Love is one a roll. Last week she released the song “You Know My Name,” her first single since 2010′s “Nobody’s Daughter.” Now, she’s unveiled a new song entitled “Wedding Day.” Check it out below.
The song borrows lyrics from Hole’s “Burn Black,” which was released in 1991. The track will be released as a double A-side single along with “You Know My Name” on May 4. Love will follow the release with a tour of the UK, playing nine dates, starting with two shows at London Shepherd’s Bush Empire on May 11-12, finishing at Newcastle Riverside on May 22.
When speaking of her writing process, Love said “Well, you sit and you write like, Queens Of The Stone Age drudge for a month, and it’s just not happening, and it’s not happening – not that Queens Of The Stone Age suck, but people expect a lot more from me.”
Love believes that the bar is set high for her when it comes to songwriting.
“Josh Homme can play, like, four notes on his bass and people take off their tops, but I have a higher bar for whatever reason. It has to be just fucking really really good.”
Not to get all feminist with you or anything, but this probably has a lot to do with the fact that Love is a woman and Homme is a man. Just saying. Here’s the new track:
