Courtney Love Streams New Song “You Know My Name”

Courtney Love will be releasing two new songs, “You Know My Name” and “Wedding Day” on May 4 through digital retailers. You can stream “You Know My Name” after the jump.

The song is just about what you’d expect from the Hole frontwoman, delivering a 3-minute grunge-rock jam with lyrics that are all too personal to Ms. Love. It’s cocky and awesome, and impressive for an artist who is quickly approaching the fifty-year-old milestone. Say what you will about her personal life, but you can’t deny that Courtney Love is still giving us good tunes, some thirty years after her …

The band released an apologetic, yet firm statement in regards to the cancellation earlier today on their Facebook page:…
