A Camp, New Album due in April.

Side project of Cardigans singer Nina Persson, A Camp has announced the release of the second album "Colonia". It has already been released throughout Scandanavia, and now Europe, but Americans can expect to see it on April 28th from Nettwerk Records.

A Camp is a collaboration of Nina Perrson and her husband Nathan Larson (a music producer who often works on films), and fellow musician Niclas Frisk. What makes A Camp stand out from The Cardigans (whom I love, by the way) is their interest in Americana. The bluegrass and Americana revival is going strong not only in our own country, but abroad. The band has been nominated for many Swedish Grammys already, and performed their newest single on this year's show.

Their first single from the album "Stronger Than Jesus" is available as a "free gift" if you sign up for their e-mail mailing list (you can do that by following the link above to their website). In the meantime, you can listen to more at their MySpace page and download some tracks at A Plague of Angels.
