Published Jan 06, 2009If you're one of the few people out there eagerly awaiting Courtney Love's second solo album, it appears you'll have to wait even longer - it's been pushed back due to problems with, um, gerbils and ghosts.
According to a post by Love's anonymous MySpace administrator, the follow-up to 2004's American Sweetheart was to supposed to drop on New Year's Day but the record hit several roadblocks, with "paranormal technical issues" slowing down the process, as well as "gerbils in [the] room," the Guardian quotes Love as saying.
But don't worry, Love's MySpace tells us the new album is being sponsored by "a prominent feminine hygiene/menstrual company" and a tequila company.
In the words of the MySpace administrator:
Here are some reasons why the album was delayed (and we are not sugarcoating it kids).
The Studio that Courtney and her band were using to record had some paranormal technical issues and had to be moved from one studio to another studio right around the holidays due to some technical sound issues that everyone, including Beinhorn who is a master and a genius was not happy with. Courtney and crew could not hear between guitars. Sound and vocal mixings have to be completed still to perfection.
if Courtney had it her way she would have it the studios sound checked first but it was originally use as a hip-hop rap studio so the acoustics were all fucked up.
The Artwork is pretty much done. Courtney has 30 million dollars in sponsorships, from a prominent feminine hygiene/menstrual company and a prominent tequila company??? and Courtney doesn't even understand that part! and many more companies, etc.
Courtney will keep you updated on her album release, but don't worry the wait at the DMV will always be longer.
To check out more ramblings about how Love is not a "cooky cherry koo koo bananas kinda person" and rather a "sober, clean, classy and very elegant" individual (because being sponsored by menstrual and tequila companies is oh so elegant), you can read the full post here.
