A-Ha are back, hot off the back of their massive hit album ‘Foot Of The Mountain’, with their fab new synth pop single ‘Nothing Is Keeping You Here’ which is out now on Universal Music.
Commenting on their return to their synth roots, Morten Harket explained, “The challenge is to figure out what direction to take. A song like The Sun Always Shines On TV is a good example. It’s essentially a ballad but we put a pounding beat to it – it turned into a power track. With this album, we tried different versions of the songs, but in the end we came back to synths. It’s how we started out in the ‘80s before we became more interested in acoustic and analogue instruments. This is a return to synth-based thinking.”
Following their triumphant show at Camden’s Roundhouse in July as part of the iTunes Live festival, A-ha will return to the UK in November for a UK tour:
Mon 2 Nov - National Indoor Arena – Birmingham
Tue 3 Nov - Manchester Evening News Arena – Manchester
Wed 4 Nov - O2 Arena – London
