Cardigans singer readies second solo album

Nina Persson to bring out A Camp album

The Cardigans frontwoman Nina Persson is to bring out her second solo record under the name A Camp.

The first, self-titled A Camp record came out in 2001 and was produced by Sparklehorse’s Mark Linkous.

Speaking about the new album she said: “Right now I’m super-inspired by Adam & The Ants trying to recreated their wet dream drum-sound on my coming solo record.


“I’m even thinking about making a cover of ’Prince Charming’ I love it. From childhood all I remember is a poster with Adam Ant and thinking he was cool.”

She is working on the album with producer Niklas Frisk and husband Nathan Larson.

Persson says that the album will not be as country influenced as the ‘band’’s last outing.

She told Swedish paper Dagens Nyheter: “I don’t dig in my country drawer anymore. Right now what amuses me most is girl-group from the 60s, 80s punk and David Bowie.”
