Woohoo!

Please be brilliant… of course it will. The last one.

Não vejo a hora de escutar esta música…

Wow I mustn’t have been paying attention as this is the first I’ve heard of this :)
I was so gutted that Foot of the Mountain was the final album without us noticing it and hoped the boys would do something new before the end – maybe a whole EP?… Can’t wait to hear the new song.

Yes!!!! uih…..how it will probably sound??
excited!!! :-)
On monday, I will check the page every minute to catch it.
Realy the last one??? can’t believe, feels strange….

I’m pretty anxious to hear this song :)

Wow, this is GREAT news!

Guys, even better would be for you to call-off calling it quits. Keep making the music that is the soundtracks to our lives.

Hei gutter:)
Hope u r gonna have an authograph session coming along with it too:))) as I missed accidentely the last 2… :(((
Cant wait 2 hear the new song!
Masse klemmer,

i CAN ONLY SAY OOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGG

Well, the word “last” again (and again and again…). I’m gonna hate this word and also “end” after this year! Kind of tiring hearing it all the time… Butterfly is a beautiful name, the rest of the tittle is just something a little annoying for many fans.

Can’t wait for new single!

Wow – how can that ‘Best Of’ be coming out so fast? There’s nothing even mentioned among the online retailers…

Why is it only be available for download to fans in Norway when there’s so many of us around the world who would like access to it on the same day?

This always happens guys!!:-(

Love the name though!

CAN’T WAIT TO HEAR THE NEW SONG THE TITLE SOUNDS WONDERFULL. HOPE I CAN BUY IT ON LINE SOON. JO X

I can’t wait !!!!!! A-ha 4-ever xxxx

Will it not be available on (for example) i-tunes for everyone? That’s a pity… :-(

Can’t wait to listen to it…

Wonderfull!
Will they do Farewell Tour’s Dvd?
Thanks!

That’s great! The DVD is a must-to-release! :)

Fantastic !!!
But why “the last hurra”, I hope it won’t be so…
I am dying for hearing it….

I am going mad trying to hear your new song but I don’t speak Norwegian so it’s a bit hard to guess where Ihave to click… Anybody could help me ?? :(

Great song, interesting sound coherent with the songs on Foot of the Mountain. Pity this is the last song from a-ha, especially when one can easily say that the Foot of the Mountain is one of the most successful albums from the last string of albums released.

We are going to miss you guys. You made the soundtrack of our life. Thanks for your music.

I love it! It would have fit perfectly in the FOTM album…

So, are you rethinking the split? :)

It’s a wonderfull song!
The music, the lyrics, Morten’s voice and the backing vocals are all just perfect!

What a great song to celebrate/end a-ha with!

Greetings from Amsterdam,
Karin.

LOVE IT!! So upbeat and uplifting – can’t wait to sing along to it at the concerts!! xxx

I knew I could trust Paul to write a-ha’s last hurrah.

This is seriously one of the greatest song ever made by a-ha.

I hope they’ll include it from now on to the concert’s setlist.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLANT!!!

I love the song. Thank you so much for writing this last song! It is amazing. Cannot wait to hear it live in concert, too.

Ahi puedes escucharla tanto como quieras… :)

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY I LOVE THE NEW SONG. CAN’T WAIT TO BUY IT. !!!!!!!!!! JO X

Gracias OUTOFBLUE, ya lo he escuchado decenas de veces desde que he vuelto del curro. ¡Qué gustazo! Me encanta esta canción súper pegadiza, una maravilla :)

HI FORGOT TO SAY LAST NIGHT THE ART WORK FOR THE NEW SONG IS WONDERFULL & MAGIC. JO X

Absolutely love it! A typical A-ha tune and what a fitting way to say farewell

I was sooooooo happy when I read on this website at the weekend about a-ha’s new single, I was absolutely delighted and the news really made my weekend and I woke-up today with this song in my head! :)
I’ve already posted 3 comments on the post re the link for this fabulous new song) :)
I really hope this song will be included in the live concerts, especially the UK :)
I agree it’s really sad that this is their last song, though I can honestly say they’ve saved the best for last!
Pure genius is this song and marvellous Morten’s amazing vocals make the lyrics soar! :)
A million thanks guys for this masterpiece :)
I love a-ha, forever in my heart XX

I mentioned some of the poignant lyrics in the previous topic…”Left without a reason to stay”…
I’m sure all of us devoted a-ha fan’s can give our guys several reasons to Stay On These Roads, a-ha represent the Real Meaning of amazing songs and music, a-ha – You Are The One and Morten’s voice is as beautiful as Velvet.
I will sign off now as I don’t want to take up all the room on these pages with my comments!
See you guys (a-ha) in November :)
(Amanda) xx

Thanks for this gift. It’s awesome. The melody is magic
Can’t wait to see you in Zürich .

It’s absolutely fantastic!
And I can’t help crying…
This is it. The dot. The end.
And I wish I could kiss you guys goodbye…
At least I still have the last concerts in Oslo!
Remember, Morten, that after the soundcheck in Bauru, I told you: -“I hope to see you in Oslo!”
I’ll be there for the 3 of you.
As a huge fan since the early days, I couldn’t and I won’t miss it…

Wonderful job by Pal,Magne and Morton! You guys work so well together so why stop a good working relationship? Just take a looooong vacation and rethink the whole thing because you and the music you make really matters! The world still needs the music that only you can produce. Save us from all the other stuff that is out there that is simply aweful. This is truly a lovely song,a lot of energy,imagination and soul that are the driving forces to this wonderful composition. I now have it stuck in my head and I am singing it everywhere I go! Wish you guys the best and God blessings upon you all!

Linda como todas as outras músicas do grupo
A-HA,inconfundível e para sempre…Não teremos outros, são extremamente diferentes, Morten é especial em seu olhar para nós, em sua voz que responde dentro do peito…Paul nos abraça com suas músicas e Mags é apaixonante com sua versatilidade no palco.Bjs a todos, inclusive a equipe. Nelma Alves-Recife.

WOW,what can i say, so much i want to say.I’ve been listening over and over and i cant sum up how i feel in 1 comment.I have tears in my eyes.’Butterfly butterfly’ sums up my whole 25 years of being a beloved a-ha fan,this is why i love aha so much.Pals beautiful words Magne’s fantastic keyboard and of course Morten’s beautiful angelic voice.Such an emotional song for me because it means its so final which i’m still finding hard to get my head around.It seems such a shame to be ‘ending on such a high note’with this poignant song.This just shows how much you still have to show the world.I will treasure this song for ever.Thank-u so much for your beautiful music which has seen me through my life and still will long after you end your path together.Please reconsider it seems so sad to end it now x your music has touched and moved your fans all over the world and still will for ever .Thank you from the bottom of my heart .I love A-ha xx
(please dont go x )
