Courtney Love‘s latest gig has her rocking more than her usual guitar.

The Hole frontwoman is headed to Fox’s Empire – and PEOPLE has an exclusive first look at her bedazzled appearance on the new hit show.

Empire stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson as the patriarch and matriarch behind a a successful record label. And Love, 50, will have a recurring role on the series as “a hard rock powerhouse, who is part of Empire Entertainment s stable of artists,” according to FOX.

Though Love – who recently walked the red carpet at Sundance with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain to promote their new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck – is known for her music, this isn’t the first time she’s shown off her acting skills.

Love has starred in the films Sid and Nancy and The People vs. Larry Flynt, and most recently guest-starred on FX’s Sons of Anarchy.

The singer’s first episode of Empire airs Feb. 11 at 9 p.m. on Fox.
