Courtney Love revealed to Rolling Stone that she will be releasing a new solo single called “This Is War” in February 2013. Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha assists on production, the song may be the lead single for a new solo album. Love discussed the track, “I’d put it out right now because it’s a two-minute, 59-second song and it’s sick, slamming, great. I think it’ll go Number One in the U.K. However, in the United States, who fucking knows? I never thought I’d put out a 130, 135 BPM song. It’s a really fast rock song. I’m telling you, it’s probably the greatest rock song I’ve ever heard.”
Clearly the former Mrs. Cocaine…err Cobain hasn’t heard “Light Me Up” by The Pretty Reckless.
