2010 release from Courtney Love and Co. Nobody's Daughter is the first Hole album in over a decade since1998's three-time Grammy-nominated Celebrity Skin. It also marks Courtney Love's first record since her solo album America's Sweetheart in 2004. Collaborators on the album include producer Michael Beinhorn, Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins, and Linda Perry. Along with Courtney Love, the new line-up of Hole includes British guitarist Micko Larkin (formerly of London indie rockers Larrikin Love), bassist Shawn Dailey (of Rock Kills Kid), and drummer Stuart Fisher. Jack Irons, formerly of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam, also played drums on the album.
"This record is about greed, vengeance and feminism," says Courtney Love of the ragged rock songs on her first LP in six years - and the first she'll release with a new incarnation of Hole. Writing began in 2005, while Love was strumming raw folk tunes on an acoustic during a rehab stint. But as the songs developed - with help from producer Michael Beinhorn, Billy Corgan and Linda Perry - Love says, "S**t got darker, I got meaner, and the tracks got hard and big." -- Rolling Stone, March 8, 2010
