Hole unveils cover art, tracklist…


Nobody’s Daughter could have been just another Courtney Love solo album. We know how that worked out last time. Fans swept it under the bed (if they even listened) and Love chiseled her way further down the spiral. Things seem different this time around, and no, it’s not because she’s branding it a new Hole record. It’s more than that. Love seems earnest and the tunes exhibit that. “Samantha” sounds brilliant, “Skinny Little Bitch” brings back the grime of Live Through This, and her recent performances only solidify that she still knows how to rock. Face it, there are plenty of reasons to be excited.

To add to the excitement, the album’s cover art and tracklist surfaced today. While the broken glass heel was pretty cool (and somewhat consistent with the band’s previous artwork), this new cover fits just as well. Now, having taken a gander at the tracklist (featured after the jump), one has to be pretty psyched to hear what “Loser Dust” might discuss or whether “Letter to God” is more or less a post-it note to estranged daughter Frances Bean. This might just be wishful thinking, but does anyone else think “Pacific Coast Highway” might be a sequel to “Malibu”? We’ll see.

Also, if you weren’t in Austin for Hole’s performance (or you were, but couldn’t get in), some videos have surfaced on YouTube. Once again, the band’s in top form, though would it have killed them to find another female for the backing vocals? Anyways, here’s a wicked cut of my personal favorite…
