Place of recording: The Alabaster Room, Rainbow Studios, Boogie Park Studios
Time of recording: 1998-2000

On March, a-ha will release the single "Summer Moved On", to be followed by the album "Minor Earth, Major Sky" on April. This is the first new music from the Norwegian trio since 1993, and marks the beginning of a new chapter in the a-ha saga.
After having enjoyed massive international success in the 1980's, the three members of a-ha - Morten Harket, Pål Waaktaar, Magne Furuholmen - spent much of the following decade working on individual projects, ranging from Furuholmen's acclaimed paintings to Waaktaar's band with his wife, Lauren Savoy. "We needed to establish ourselves on our terms", the band says of the time spent apart from each other.
Having done just that, the three now bring a whole range of new elements and qualities to "Minor Earth, Major Sky". While their melodies and arrangements are as lush and majestic as ever, the band's growth and evolution is evident in ways both subtle and obvious throughout the album's x songs.
"Having had the sort of success we've had, we don't really have anything to prove in the commercial sense," feels Morten Harket. "Rather, this is about us finally proving what we're capable of as artists and musicians. And the astonishing thing is that, in every way you could think of, we're simply better than ever..."
