Above the Arctic Circle, a-ha recorded their 1st collection of new songs since 2015’s Cast in Steel: True North is a letter from a-ha, and a poem from the far north of Norway. Accompanied by a film, the album combines the band’s visions & the talent of Norwegian orchestra Arctic Philharmonic to weave a narrative reminding us of our collective connection to the environment. This multimedia experience with a powerful narrative is unique for a-ha. The 1st single to be released from the album is the elegiac, soaring, sweeping ‘I’m In’, accompanied by a music video released on July 8th.
For what at once is their 11th studio album and also a very immediate document of its creation, a-ha have entered a new world. Since their world-wide breakthrough with “Take On Me” in 1985, they have always pushed forwards. Allied to this spirit of embracing innovation, True North is also a partnership between a-ha and Bodø, which in 2024 will be a European Capital of Culture – the first Arctic city to be chosen.
Available to pre-order on CD, LP or exclusive Recycled Eco-Mix Vinyl.
