Former Hole singer Courtney Love is reported to be in advance talks with Virgin about a new record deal.

Billboard reports that Love's new album will be called 'America's Sweetheart' and includes tracks she co-wrote with 4 Non Blondes' Linda Perry, who also has worked with Pink.

Virgin declined to comment on reports of the talks.

Love recently cancelled planned appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals in August to continue work on her new record.
