Off Shelf Interviews James Yorkston and Nina Persson
In a recent interview with Off Shelf, the Cardigans’ Nina Persson explains why she was compelled to join James Yorkston and the Second Hand Orchestra as they collaborated on the follow-up to their acclaimed debut LP The Wide, Wide River. “James and I have a friend in common with Karl-Jonas [Winquivist, the bandleader of the Second Hand Orchestra]… he’s the one that asked me to join the project. He sent me a couple songs and I really liked them. I felt that it was a good challenge to work with live takes like they do, to sing in a band not as a front person but more like part of the band. And the music and James’ voice really stood out to me.”
Persson and Yorkston are both interviewed about their new album The Great White Sea Eagle, which is at radio now from Domino. Read the whole thing here.
