In a recent conversation with WTF podcast, Courtney Love boldly proclaimed that out of everyone she had ever encountered in the music industry, only Kurt Cobain and Lana Del Rey were “true musical geniuses.”
the HOLE singer is prepping her upcoming record–her first studio album since 2010’s Nobody’s Daughter–with former DIRTY PRETTY THINGS guitarist Anthony Rossomando and frequent collaborator Justin Parker.
“Lana and Kurt are the only two true musical geniuses I’ve ever known and by that I mean they can Spielberg anything,” she said. “She’s got the integrity that Kurt had. The only two people I know that I can say [that about]. By the way, Stipe? Bono? Yes, these are people that I know and love. Billie Joe, sure. But Lana? She’s got a magic thing. And she’s not even f**ked up!”
Lana Del Rey is also preparing a new album, Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, due for release in March 2023.
