Courtney Love has confirmed the release of a brand new AA single, You Know My Name/Wedding Day, released May 4, 2014.
The new songs were produced by Michael Beinhorn and recorded in Los Angeles, California and are the first new solo material Courtney has released since 2004"s America's Sweetheart. You Know My Name is an undeniable slice of perfect punk pop and Wedding Day a visceral onslaught of guitar riffs with Courtney's customary impassioned vocals. Both tracks Courtney cites as some of the best music she has made in years.
The single will be released on May 4 via digital download with a limited edition 7" vinyl to follow.
Courtney Love has confirmed that she will be returning to the UK in May 2014 for a 9 date tour starting with two consecutive shows at London's Shepherds Bush Empire on May 11 and 12 and finishing at Newcastle Riverside on May 22.
This will be Courtney's first UK tour in 4 years having not played here since May 2010.
The UK is a second home to Courtney and she is thrilled to be returning explaining: "I feel most at home in the UK and can't wait to catch up on TOWIE and play in my second and hopefully, inevitably my first home. I grew up half a British citizen and I just miss it. I can't wait to play for my Brits".
The multi platinum selling, Grammy and Golden Globe nominated recording artist will be joined on stage as part of her band with her friend and UK cult legend Ginger Wildheart of The Wildhearts.
As front-woman of Hole and solo artist in her own right, Love's stage presence that John Peel once described as "verged on the heroic. generating a tension which I cannot remember having felt before from any stage" has the presence and lyrics to make her a significant iconic figure in music & pop culture.
