In their January issue, on sale this Thursday 17th December, Dazed heads to New York to spend a couple of days with the legend that is Courtney Love, as she gets ready to unleash new Hole album ‘Nobody’s Daughter’ early in the New Year.
Photographed by Yelena Yemchuk and styled by senior fashion editor Karen Langley, the first lady of rock talks exclusively to Dazed about why London has the best musicians, how she overcame her demons, and why her name will always split a room. Watch out on DazedDigital for more Courtney Love exclusives.
Elsewhere, fashion takes grunge as its key inspiration, with shoots by William Selden, Benjamin Alexander Huseby and Andrea Spotorno.
