Desertshore is the third studio album by German musician Nico. It was released in December 1970 on the Reprise label.

Desertshore was co-produced by John Cale and Joe Boyd. Unlike its predecessor The Marble Index it incorporates elements from Western traditional pop.

“Janitor of Lunacy” was composed as a tribute to her friend Brian Jones who died the previous year.

The back and front covers feature stills from the film The Inner Scar by Philippe Garrel which starred Nico, Garrel and her son Ari Boulogne. A few of the songs from the album were included on the film’s soundtrack.

Like The Marble Index, Desertshore obtained a small cult following upon its release but was overlooked by most large publications and the public in general. However it has received mainstream praise from critics in subsequent years with AllMusic and The New Rolling Stone Album Guide in particular providing a strong and positive reception. Tiny Mix Tapes rated Desertshore five out of five. The Village Voice was less favorable—giving the album a C rating.

“All That Is My Own” was selected by Morrissey for inclusion on his Under the Influence compilation.

“Le petit chevalier” was covered live by Bjork during her Post tour in 1996 and also by Bat for Lashes in 2007 at the Glastonbury festival. It was prominently sampled by Abu Lahab on his 2013 album Of Heliotaxis and Cosmic Knifing. “Janitor of Lunacy” was covered by Austrian artist Soap&Skin and included in her 2008 debut EP.
