The premiere of ‘Under The Make-Up’ is this Friday, and reviews are already coming in. Here is a brief look at what’s been said about the single so far, which we’ll update as new reviews are published:


VG (4/6) – ‘Dripping with melancholy, majestic and intense. And impossible to dislike.’

Dagbladet – ‘Morten Harket’s ever-present fervor carries the track forward, while the flashy orchestral arrangement emphasizes the drama of the lyrics.’

Aftenposten (5/6) – ‘Magnificent stadium pop with touches of strings and horns that takes the song to almost symphonic heights. a-ha has always been quick to renew itself without losing the singularity and the unmistakable sound they have built.’

Budstikka – ‘Morten Harket’s voice is like a clear stream..’

German – ‘Comeback mit neuem Song’


Radio Creme Brulee – ‘a-ha’s “Under The Make-Up” brims with melancholy’
