Come Clean was the first album to be released by the British band Curve following their temporary split in 1994 and reformation in 1996, and their third all-new studio album in all.

Musically, the album marked a shift to a style more influenced by electronic and dance music than Curve's earlier records. Significantly, the commercial success of and critical acclaim for Come Clean (at least relative to the reception that the group's harsher and less accessible 1993 record Cuckoo had received) encouraged Curve to continue recording.

The working title for the album was, according to several interviews executed in 1996: Magic Music Medicine. In the fall of 1997 the bands American record company circulated a promo cassette titled Curve: Unmixed, Unmastered And Not Sequenced, which featured 12 of the songs from Come Clean. The tape had the tracks appearing in a different running order and some of them appeared in different versions.
