    Norwegian synth pop greats a-ha have returned with their first new album in seven years. Entitled True North, the 12-track collection is out today alongside a companion film.

    The trio of Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket, and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy recorded True North in November 2021 in Bodø, the Norwegian city located 90km above the Arctic Circle.

    In the companion film, a-ha perform the album’s material with the accompaniment of Norway’s Arctic Philharmonic. Interspersed throughout the picture are scenes of actors portraying life in the north. “True North is a letter from a-ha, from the Arctic Circle, a poem from the far north of Norway with new music,” explained Magne in a statement.

    Stream True North via Apple Music and Spotify below. The film is now available for rental and purchase via VOD platforms.
