A-ha return with their upcoming film and album, ‘True North’


A-ha are back with their upcoming film and album, True North. 

A multimedia experience with a powerful narrative, hear the band perform songs from the new album for the first time in the True North film, coming to selected cinemas on Thursday 15 September only.

The original idea for True North was for the Norwegian trio, formed of Morten Harket, Paul Waaktaar-Savoy and Magne Furuholmen, to record their first session in the wonderous studio location just 90km above the Arctic Circle then to film it.

Eventually, the project expanded into more of a production, and they were joined by the talented Norwegian orchestra, Arctic Philharmonic. What spawned from these sessions is a magnificent album, and film to match, that details the band’s vision of a collective connection to the environment. “True North is a letter from a-ha, from the Arctic Circle, a poem from the far north of Norway,” says Furuholmen.

Since their worldwide breakthrough with ‘Take On Me’ in 1985, a-ha have continued to adapt and evolve. Now, with what is both their 11th studio album and the documentation of its creation, a-ha have entered a new phase.

‘I’m In’ is the first single from the trio’s new album, which will be released on 21st October 2022, along with the film, ‘Truth North’, being available for rental and purchase on the day of the album release.
