Tomorrow night, Courtney Love will make her debut on the new Fox hip-hop drama Empire as an aging star attempting to revitalize her career. She’s already called the performance “a tribute to Whitney Houston,” so sounds like it’ll be — at the absolute least — fascinating to watch. In advance of her Empire arc, Love has dropped an emotional, raspy, uptempo cover of Al Green’s “Take Me to the River.” Stream that below, and check out a trailer previewing the Hole singer’s upcoming return to the small screen.
