In further a-ha news, Ørjan Nilsson’s book, “Hjemkomst” (The Homecoming), will be launched September 26th. The book covers the years 1993–1998 when a-ha’s frontman Morten Harket enters the stage as a solo artist and political activist, releasing new material (“Wild Seed”), while revealing a fiery political involvement in issues ranging from climate crisis to the liberation of East-Timor.
It’s not yet sure if an English version will be released, but you can expect it to happen as a-ha has quite a strong following outside Norway as well. Below is the frontcover for said book.
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute.
