COURTNEY LOVE Denies Scrapping New Album

May 21, 2008

The Pulse of Radio reports: Courtney Love has posted a message at her MySpace blog denying rumors that she has scrapped the solo album she's been working on for the past three years, according to Billboard.com. Love has been writing and recording material with producer-songwriter Linda Perry, who has worked with James Blunt, Alicia Keys and Celine Dion. Love wrote, "No 'scrapping' is going on, simply a few retakes, especially since all those recordings were leaked to the Net... Don't assume you know any songs on this album. Some may sound somewhat familiar or even have the same titles and arrangements. A few are just precious diamonds I wouldn't touch, but there's TONS of NEW ones which you haven't a clue about."

Love said that the album will be turned in to Perry's Custard label by mid-July.

The singer also added that she was "playing" with former FAITH NO MORE keyboardist Roddy Bottum, but did not go into any further detail.

One rumor had her replacing the Perry-produced disc, which is tentatively titled "Nobody's Daughter", with a "band" album that she was writing with her touring guitarist, Micko Larkin.

Love's first solo effort, "America's Sweetheart", came out in 2004.

She continues to claim that she is the victim of massive identity fraud, with unknown perpetrators allegedly draining funds from the estate of her late husband, NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain.
