Believe it or not, Nobody’s Daughter, Courtney Love‘s former-solo-album-turned-Hole-“reunion”-LP, managed to catch one label’s eye. Set for release on April 27th, Mercury/IDJ will issue the highly anticipated LP that’s been in the wood work for nearly five years. How about that?
The LP has stirred up some controversy in the past, as it originally was slated for Love’s solo career comeback. However, last June, Love announced plans to reunite Hole, which (predictably) resulted in her just using the name. (Sound familiar?) Instead, Love now finds herself surrounded by new members to piss off. These fresh faces include guitarist Micko Larkin, bassist Shawn Dailey (of Rock Kills Kid), and drummer Stuart Fisher. However, one rock veteran managed to offer a hand in the studio, former Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam drummer Jack Irons, who laid down drum tracks for …Daughter.
Love cites three figureheads as collaborators on the album: Linda Perry, Billy Corgan, and producer Michael Beinhorn. Don’t get too excited on the last name. According to Spin, Beinhorn, who produced Hole’s last album, abandoned Nobody’s Daughter after only a year, saying, “She had a lot of things going on in her personal life that made it impossible to do the sort of work that I wanted.”
If anything, this should be “interesting.” We’ll see April 27th.
