Swedish alt-rock songstress Nina Persson, whom you may know from her days as the lead singer of The Cardigans, is eager to share her first solo album with the world. Titled Animal Heart, the album will be available Feb. 11 (in North America) via The End Records. The album was written by Persson with husband Nathan Larson (A Camp, Shudder To Think) and Eric D. Johnson (The Shins, Fruit Bats). Details about an international tour in support of Animal Heart will be available soon.
Nina Persson is one of Sweden’s biggest pop stars. In addition to her time spent as a member of The Cardigans, Persson formed a previous solo project called A Camp, with Larson and Niclas Frisk. A Camp birthed two critically acclaimed albums (A Camp in 2001 and Colonia in 2009).
