Courtney Love is worried about crying on stage.

The Hole singer - who is set to make her long-awaited live return in London later this month - is unsure whether she will be able to keep her emotions in check when singing her new song 'Honey', which is about her late husband Kurt Cobain.

She said: "'Honey' did have a vibe that was very different - but now it's straight up about Kurt. It's the first song I can say that about, ever. Other than 'Celebrity Skin's 'Northern Star'.

"I've thought about performing it lots because I cry a lot on stage anyway. But I don't wanna cry onstage! So I don't know what to do about that. I love doing 'Northern Star' but when I sing it still kills me. It's one of those empathy songs."

Courtney claims the song is so emotional, no one she worked with on new album 'Nobody's Daughter' failed to be moved by it in the recording studio.

She added: "It's a beautiful song, it made everyone cry in the studio. Every song Micko and I were trying to write was either Oasis' 'Wonderwall' or The Verve's 'Bittersweet Symphony', and Radiohead's 'Black Star'.

"'Honey' started out as being 'Wonderwall', and it was more jaunty. "
