The Courier recently spoke to Nina Persson about her record with James Yorkston and the Second Hand Orchestra, The Great White Sea Eagle. When asked about what attracted her to the project, the Cardigans’ frontwoman said, “Well firstly it was attractive to me that I got a request that involved more than one song, because I get a lot of requests singing on peoples’ music – duets or little collaborations that I’ve done some of. But I’ve decided to not do that as much because it makes me feel like I am spreading myself thin and not necessarily developing as an artist or relationships by doing that. This was nice because it was a project with more meat on the bones… it ended up being a whole record collaboration.I think that’s more worthwhile in a way because that’s what takes me places… This was really like a whole new project that involved some investment in time, in artistry.” Read the entire interview here.
