Courtney Love

Courtney Love is in town.

Perhaps you noticed the commotion. The Hole frontwoman turned solo performer played a tiny show in London at the weekend, strumming through hits in the back of Hayden Wylds coffeeshop.

Heading out on the road, new single 'You Know My Name' is now popping up in record shops across the land. Time for a video, then...

Directed by Maximilla Lukacs, the film maker explains that "'You Know My Name' is a very hard hitting punk song and Courtney and I wanted to make a video that would counter that full force with very soft and feminine visuals. We chose an extremely feminine color palette but all the action is anarchic and wild! It has the feeling of being on a female pirate ship. Full of explosions of glitter and lace! It is fearless, raw and beautiful just like Courtney."

Courtney Love introduces the video: "Hey Dolls! This is the world premiere of my music video, 'You Know My Name'. I'm so excited to be getting back to my rocker roots and doing what I love. I had so much fun making it and I hope you all enjoy it!"

Watch it now.
