    2 x recycled 12” 180gsm vinyl (mixture of recycled colours). 12” gatefold sleeve, with four page booklet and 12 song track listing.

    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 to be released on July 8th along with the pre-order-start of the album.
    Since their world-wide breakthrough with “Take On Me” in 1985, they have always pushed forwards. For True North, a-ha decided on a new approach. Their first collection of new songs since 2015’s Cast In Steel is more than a straightforward album –and unique for a-ha. While True North is a new album, it is also a film capturing a-ha recording the songs during November 2021 in Bodø, the Norwegian city located 90km above the Arctic Circle.

    With every album we tweak it, to see if there’s a different way to go about it,” explains Paul.

    Magne Furuholmen shares about the first single “I’m In”:
    ‘I’m in’ is a song about total commitment and a show of support for someone who is troubled. Real commitment is a leap of faith. Everyone knows how difficult it can be to offer commitment and support unconditionally, but this is what it takes to make anything worthwhile happen; love, friendship, change, self-improvement, careers, a better world. Easier said than done of course, but it begins with an attitude, then uttering the words. After this it is all hard work to realize whatever potential your commitment has in the world. without allowing ourselves this attitude everything just gets bogged down with conflicting thoughts, doubts and fear. Just say it: I’m in.
