As one of Sweden's biggest pop stars over the past decade, Nina Persson, known internationally as the iconic lead vocalist of the seminal indie pop-rock band The Cardigans, took over the world in the late nineties with the smash hit 'Lovefool'(which reached the coveted No. 1 spot in both the UK and US going on to sell an excess of 2.5 million copies worldwide). She has forever been an artist who dared to push the creative envelope, successfully scaling new heights in the process.
In 2001 following several years of touring with The Cardigans and the release of the group’s fourth studio album,Gran Turismo,Persson formed - A Camp, a project that birthed two critically acclaimed albums (A Camp in 2001 and Colonia in 2009).
Nina Persson released her first solo album 'Animal Heart' and has written everything with husband Nathan Larson (A Camp, Shudder To Think also a noted film composer), and Eric D. Johnson (The Shins, Fruit Bats– Joan Wasser collaborated on “Food For The Beast”), but with a new approach. They "hung around" at their home in Harlem and played the songs with just a drum machine, a guitar and piano before going into the studio.
