In this interview by Amanda Flinner of Songfacts, Nina Persson gives us the scoop on her new album, her songwriting process and the future of the Cardigans.
“After more than twenty years of performing, Nina Persson should be used to the spotlight. She started out as the lead singer for the pop/rock group the Cardigans – one of the hottest Swedish imports of the ’90s – with international hit singles like “Lovefool,” “Erase/Rewind” and “My Favourite Game.”
During a hiatus from the band in 2001, Nina brought her ethereal vocals and poignant lyrics to the side project A Camp with her husband Nathan Larson (novelist, film composer and former Shudder to Think guitarist) and Niclas Frisk, founder of the Swedish pop group Atomic Swing. In all this time, she never released an album under her own name – until now. Animal Heart, scheduled for release in the US on February 11, marks her first solo effort.”
