Nina Persson is one of my favourite singers. She is best known for her work with The Cardigans who have become one of the most successful bands to come out of Sweden in recent years racking up more than 10 million album sales worldwide. Nina has also released material as part of A Camp and as a guest vocalist with the likes of Manic Street Preachers, Sparklehorse and David Arnold. She’s never shied away from tackling cover versions and in almost every instance delivers something quite different from the original:-

mp3 : The Cardigans – The Boys Are Back In Town
mp3 : A Camp – Boys Keep Swinging
mp3 : Nina Persson & Nathan Larson – Losing My Religion

Nathan Larson is, like the bloke featured yesterday, yet another musician whose CV indicates I should know a lot more about him other than the fact he works with his other half every now and again. Click here for more info.

Tomorrow will bring another in the Saturday series from Scotland, then its more from The Undertones on Sunday before another week of covers.
