Brody Dalle's new album, "Diploid Love," hits stores on April 29th via Universal's Caroline imprint. In anticipation, the LP is streaming in full via NPR. The album cover is below.

As Consequence of Sound notes, "Diploid Love" is the solo debut for Dalle, formerly of the Distillers and Spinerette. Co-produced by Alain Johannes (Them Crooked Vultures, Arctic Monkeys), the nine-track effort features collaborations with Queens of the Stone Age's Michael Shuman, the Strokes' Nick Valensi, Warpaint's Emily Kokal, and Garbage's Shirley Manson. It is preceded by the singles "Meet the Foetus / Oh the Joy" featuring Manson, "Parties for Prostitutes" and "Don't Mess With Me."

Discussing the aural inspiration for the album with Time Out Melbourne, Dalle cited "'The Ghostbusters' soundtrack on tape. I haven't heard it since I was little," she explained, "but whenever I do electronic drums I imagine the sound comes from that movie from the '80s. Same with Limahl's 'Never Ending Story.'" She also pointed to an animal muse: "Red tail hawks are my animal obsession, we have them around our house; I could watch them all day."

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing.

    "the same sort of heat as her famous husband do." Can we just fire the entire UG team of journalists and try to get slightly more literate people to do the job? I mean 90% of it is copy/paste and they still find a way to consistently **** it up.
    "...Her famous husband do." Disregarding the grammatical error, Brody Dalle is pretty ****ing famous, and her career with The Distillers is among the best punk I know of from the 00's.
    The three singles I've heard from it, 'Meet The Foetus/Oh the Joy', 'Don't Mess With Me' & 'Blood In Gutter' are all extremely unique from each other and individually fantastic listens. I'm gonna be restraining myself from listening to the streamed version until I have the CD in my hands.
    I would think a good stand in for Kurt Cobain if Nirvana... come on Ultimate-guitar readers now give out to me
