Courtney Love has ruled out a future Hole reunion.

The singer, who recently released a new solo double A-side single 'Wedding Day'/'You Know My Name', said that while she is working with Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson again, she doesn't want to tour with her old band.

"I don’t want to get on the oldies circuit," she told the Philippine Daily Enquirer. "I don’t need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today."

"[Being] one of the last chicks in a rock 'n' roll band is a weird place to be," she added. "It's tough to put Hole back together and make sure that it's relevant."

Love recently said that she hopes filming will start on a mooted Kurt Cobain biopic within the next year and that she won't be deciding who will play her late husband.

"The biopic should start within the next year or so," she said. "I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blonde, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts. There's a ton of those. Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces. I don’t want to be the person who makes that decision."

She also said that her and Cobain's daughter Frances Bean, along with the surviving members of Nirvana, will all be involved in the project: "I do have a say in it. So do Frances, and Krist (Novoselic) and Dave (Grohl), for that matter, if it touches on Nirvana — and it will. I am leading the charge because it’s time to do this."

Love previously revealed to NME that she has ambitious plans for her late husband's legacy, including a documentary and stage play. Love stated that it has been fans' reactions to the possibility of a stage production involving Cobain's story which has made it now "very likely" to happen.
