(USA TODAY) Courtney Love, who is currently on a solo tour, is working on a new album for early 2014 and an as-yet-untitled memoir that's due around the holidays in December, according to Billboard.
The album is tentatively titled Died Blonde and she says she already recorded eight songs for the album. She plans to release a double A-sided single featuring the songs California and Wedding Day, which she calls the perfect punk song, to coincide with the release of the memoir. California, she says, "is my final bid to write the perfect California song, and I think I did."
Love says those songs and her other new material "is not my usual (style). I don't have any Fleetwood Mac references on it. Usually I always have a Fleetwood Mac reference as well as having, like, a Big Black references. These are very unique songs that sort of magically happened."
As for her book, which is being published by HarperCollins, Love says that "there's some salacious things about myself, but there's certainly no kissy-telly. I don't do kiss-tell. It's not that. In fact, you'd think I was the Virgin Mary from his book so far - but that doesn't mean there's not juicy parts in it. It's just juicy parts about ME, not other people."
Love will also be seen soon in the video for Fall Out Boy's Rat A Tat from their new Save Rock and Roll album.
