'Nobody's Daughter' is the fourth studio album by alternative rock band Hole, released worldwide on April 27, 2010 (see release history) through Mercury Records. The album was originally conceived by Hole frontwoman Courtney Love as a solo project titled How Dirty Girls Get Clean, following her poorly-received solo debut America's Sweetheart (2004). Much of the material featured on Nobody's Daughter originated from studio sessions of How Dirty Girls Get Clean, which was conceived in 2006 after various legal issues and rehabilitation sentences-stemming from several years of cocaine and opiate addiction- which had left her "suicidal".
In 2009, Love announced that the album would be released under the band name Hole, along with guitarist Micko Larkin, bassist Shawn Dailey and drummer Stu Fisher. It is the first Hole album to be released in twelve years, since 1998's Celebrity Skin, and also the group's first release to, aside from Love, not feature any of the original band members.
