a-ha Drops New Music Video for “True North”
Back in October, Norwegian pop band a-ha, consisting of Magne Furuholmen (keyboards/guitar/bass), Morten Harket (vocals) and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy (drums/guitar), released their eleventh studio album “True North”, and a new film of the same name.
It is their first project in seven years since the 2015 album “Cast in Steel”.
The album comprises 12-track, 6 songs by Magne Furuholmen, and 6 songs by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy.
The band recorded with the Norwegian Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra in Bodø, Norway in 2021.
It is a filmed live performance and includes scenic clips from Norway's nature, set in landscapes of northern Norway.
From the album, the band has dropped a new music video for “True North” directed by Stian Andersen.
“First, we had the idea to record a studio session live,” Paul Waaktaar-Savoy explained. “Then, to film a studio session. That grew into more of a production with the Norwegian orchestra, the Arctic Philharmonic, who we have collaborated with.”
- Magne Furuholmen said of the album and the film, “True North is a letter from a-ha, from the Arctic Circle, a poem from the far north of Norway.”
The film combines with Norwegian orchestra, Arctic Philharmonic, to weave a narrative showing our collective connection to the environment.
The film ollows this narrative arc through actors portraying life in the North as well as documenting Magne, Morten and Paul recording music over two days in Bodø, Norway.
The film “True North” was in selected cinemas worldwide on September 15.
