In the Studio With Courtney Love: Exclusive Photos

November 17, 2009 4:30 PM ET

Last week, Rolling Stone brought you highlights from our Courtney Love story in the November 26, 2009 issue (on stands now). We caught up with the Hole leader in the studio, where she revealed her long-in-the-works Nobody's Daughter explores themes of greed, vengeance and feminism.

"There's a lot of maternal instinct on there, and probably my favorite lyric is: 'Nobody's daughter, she's never was, she never will be beholden to anyone. She cannot kill. You don't understand how evil we really are,' " Love tells RS. "I don't even know what that really means, but I know it's something to do with my daughter and it's also to do with me."

Here's an extra Love bonus: exclusive photos of Courtney in New York's famed Electric Lady Studios, hard at work on the follow-up to 2004's America's Sweetheart:

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
