Rock chick Courtney Love is on the lookout for a new label deal - and is currently in talks with a host of companies willing to take her on.

The former Hole frontwoman is in talks with EMI, VIRGIN's V2, SANCTUARY, and several other interested companies.

Love is in the process of recording her next album AMERICA'S SWEETHEART in France, which is expected to be released this autumn (03). It will be her first release since Hole's 1998 long player CELEBRITY SKIN.

Love is already signed to POPTONES/TELSTAR in Britain.
