In an exclusive Q&A for the a-ha mailing list members, a-ha’s manager Harald Wiik responded to questions submitted by fans. Some of the info was interesting, the rest not really. But let’s stick to the interesting info we gathered from it.

A ‘True North’ tour featuring a-ha’s upcoming album is in the works for the summer of 2023 possibly with the Arctic Philharmonic joining the band on some of the shows.

Coming up as well is a vinyl box of the first 5 albums as well as a 6 album super deluxe “Hunting high and low” release. Also planned are deluxe editions of “Analogue” and “Foot of the Mountain”.

The rest of the answer were kinda tongue in cheek. For instance when asked how he coped with the bandmembers’ very different personalities he simply answers: “I don’t cope. I just go straight to the offending.”

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. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

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. Thank you.
