Courtney Love has shared a brand new song called "Wedding Day."

As the NME notes, the song will be released as a double A-side single with the previously revealed "You Know My Name" on May 4. Following the release Courtney Love will tour the UK, playing nine dates, starting with two shows at London Shepherd's Bush Empire on May 11-12, finishing at Newcastle Riverside on May 22.

Speaking about the tour, she said: "I feel most at home in the UK and can't wait to catch up on TOWIE and play in my second and hopefully, inevitably my first home. I grew up half a British citizen and I just miss it. I can't wait to play for my Brits."

Courtney Love also recently said that people "expect a lot more from me" than from Queens of the Stone Age. Speaking to the Quietus, the former Hole frontwoman discussed her writing process, commenting: "Well, you sit and you write like, Queens of the Stone Age drudge for a month, and it's just not happening, and it's not happening - not that Queens of the Stone Age suck, but people expect a lot more from me."

She added that people have set a "higher bar" for her when it comes to songwriting. "Josh Homme can play, like, four notes on his bass and people take off their tops, but I have a higher bar for whatever reason. It has to be just f--king really really good," she explained.

    The irony in this article if you've read the other Kobain/Love related article today...
    It's not irony... Irony: the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.
    It's not so bad. Musically it's nice, I like her vocal delivery, the lyrics are kind of shit but come on, it IS Courtney, I didn't expect a masterpiece. Still, a decent effort, to be fair.
    This article and song title go very well with the latest Cobain article. I wonder if she used his "note" as inspiration for her lyrics.
    Like we don't have enough deranged lunatics living over here already
    But hey at least she can sing well and writes her own stuff. Better than generic X-Factor winner number 12363346
    Nice, but it should've been recorded with a little more rawness. Will definitely rock harder live.
    Good for you Courtney, but do us all a favor, please step out of the limelight now
    Thank god Love has come to save us from all the QOTSA bullshit being brought out these days
    Yes, it's obviously not true that Josh Homme only knows four notes. The problem is that he only plays four notes before he gets bored and decides to **** your mom instead
    Sounds GREAT, really, but the lyrics are kind of.. merh. But then again, i guess most are - so all in all. Myea, this is really good!
    It's a shame that she's using this recent publicity, whether intentional or not, about Kurt to try to promote her own music. Maybe she feels pressured that Krist wants to make music, and she feels she needs to keep up with him.
