Courtney Love has said that she will release her "amazing" new album this Christmas.

According to Jam, the former Hole frontwoman's LP has a working title of 'Died Blonde' and will be put out towards the end of 2013 to coincide with the release of her memoir, which reportedly has a working title of Last Bitch Standing.

Asked how the new record was shaping up, Love replied: "It sounds epic. It’s amazing. It’s great. But it’s really hard work." Discussing the progress of her autobiography, meanwhile, she said: "I have a co-writer now so it’s actually much easier. I think his name is going to be on it but, I don’t know, if I can avoid his name being on it I will happily do that. Basically he sits there and I talk and then somebody transcribes what we talk about and then I go attack what’s on the written page and make it more literate."

In May of this year, Love revealed that she had advertised for a bassist on internet listings site Craigslist and had received only one response. "I put an ad on Craigslist that said, 'Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur," she said. "I got exactly one response. There's just not a lot of chick bass players."

The singer's new album will be released under her own name rather than as Hole, like she did with her 2010 album, 'Nobody's Daughter'. She said: "My name symbolises a lot of things, and I have to sit in these rooms with lawyers and be called a 'brand' often, so I was just like, 'Fucking name it after me!' I don't care." Her debut solo studio LP, 'Nobody's Daughter', was released in 2004.
