the center of the heart is the suburb to the brain
Nina Persson, best known as the lead singer with swoontastic pop combo The Cardigans, is about to release her very first solo longplayer. "Animal Heart" follows a five year break after she released "Colonia" as one half of A Camp. It has been nine years since The Cardigans released their last album, "Super Extra Gravity".
The title track is the first single to be released from the album. It's a glittering, throbbing number with lovely synth flavored ear candy. The vid for the track was shot last year in her current home of New York City.
It's lovely to see Nina return from the wilderness! I wonder how many times they had to shoot that clip?
Fun fact! The Cardigans are from Jönköping, a city in southern Sweden, which is also the birthplace of Agnetha Fältskog, the lovely, golden throated singer from ABBA.
As a bonus, here's "Dreaming Of Houses", another track from "Animal Heart".
