'MTV Unplugged - Summer Solstice' Out Now!

'MTV Unplugged - Summer Solstice' is out now! 

For the MTV Unplugged shows, a-ha played 17 songs in completely new arrangements as well as two new songs and two cover versions on vintage acoustic instruments, accompanied by a backing band featuring Karl Oluf Wennerberg on drums, Even Ormestad on acoustic bass, Morten Qvenild on piano and various acoustic keyboards, Lars Horntveth on multiple instruments and Madeleine Ossum on violin and vocals, Tove Margrethe Erikstad on cello and Emilie Heldal Lidsheim on viola and backing vocals. 

Furthermore, a total of four guest stars served as duet partners for Morten Harket. Most notably, Echo & The Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch had been invited by Magne Furuholmen to sing “Scoundrel Days” and Ian’s very own “The Killing Moon” on the first of the two shows. On the second night, a-ha were joined by Alison Moyet of Yazoo fame to duet with Morten on “Summer Moved On”. Highasakite’s Ingrid Helene Håvik guested on “The Sun Always Shines on TV” on both nights, while, last but not least, American singer Lissie did the same on “I’ve Been Losing You”.
