Listen To Courtney Love’s New Song, Mother, From The Turning Soundtrack
Ahead of the release of the Floria Sigismondi-directed film on January 24, Courtney has unveiled the opening song from its soundtrack – and revealed that it was a “genuine privilege” to work with Floria, as well as Mother co-writer Lawrence Rothman, on the project.
“I’ve long admired her work, particularly The Runaways and the Marilyn Manson videos,” Courtney says. “Floria and Lawrence had a clear vision on what they wanted to achieve and it was an honour to be invited into their studio and to become a part of it.”
