A-ha - Foot Of The Mountain

A-Ha return, hot off the back of their massive hit album ‘Foot Of The Mountain’, with their brand new single "Nothing Is Keeping You Here" on 21 September 2009 released on Universal Music Record Label (UMRL).

The keyboard driven rhythmic opening of "Nothing Is Keeping You Here" quickly gives way to Morten Harket’s trademark, rich and troubled vocal as A-ha explore the melancholy of potential loss. Swathed in beats and deep orchestration, the new single mix of the track is a stark contrast to the more measured instrumentation of the album version. The single was remixed by Steve Osborne (New Order, Placebo, Suede, Elbow).

Commenting on their return to their synth roots, Morten Harket explained, “The challenge is to figure out what direction to take. A song like The Sun Always Shines On TV is a good example. It’s essentially a ballad but we put a pounding beat to it – it turned into a power track. With this album, we tried different versions of the songs, but in the end we came back to synths. It’s how we started out in the ‘80s before we became more interested in acoustic and analogue instruments. This is a return to synth-based thinking.”
