From the archives

Paul on songwriting:

‘Hi Paul, which of your Savoy albums have you most enjoyed recording and why?’ (Munroe Lewis)

Paul: ‘It has to be “Mountains of Time”.
The songs kept coming. Recording it was easy. Lauren was pregnant. We were giddy and excited.’

Paul on his career highlights:

a-ha.com: ‘What have been the top three career highlights for you in the past five years?’

Paul: ‘1999/2000 was amazing; Savoy released “Mountains of Time” to such a positive reception and 6 months later a-ha was welcomed back from their seven year nap by everyone (or so it seemed at least).’

Paul on song editing and song duration:

a-ha.com: ‘If you’re so inspired, do you sometimes regret that a typical pop song lasts for four minutes?’

Paul: ‘Well, it used to be three minutes (laughs)

No, I don’t regret it. With [Savoy’s latest album] ‘Mountains of Time’, I really got into editing stuff. Most of the songs on that one were like 4.5 to 5.5 minutes at first. Then I chopped off at least a minute on each of them, and they just felt better. So I think there’s definitely a limit. Certain songs need more time, but then you make a point of that. Normally, the more condensed, the better.’
