In an interview with The Scotsman, James Yorkston sheds light on his recent collaboration with Nina Persson of The Cardigans. “I always get embarrassed when I say this in interviews, but I loved one of her albums when I was younger,” he told the paper. “Pre-internet, me and my friends used to swap cassettes and one of them was a Cardigans album called Life. I thought we should ask Nina because I felt I had some connection with her… We both wear woolly hats.” The excellent result, new LP The Great White Sea Eagle, was recorded with The Second Hand Orchestra and is at radio now from Domino.
