The guitarist has joined ex-SMASHING PUMPKINS star Billy Corgan in the studio with Love.
Cantrell tells MTV NEWS, "She's (Love) an interesting character. We've gotten together a few times to work on some stuff for her next solo album.
"She's been working with a bunch of people. I know Billy Corgan's been over there. But I threw a few things at her, and I think we've come up with something different."
