Savoy album release week
In just 11 days, a-ha takes their MTV Unplugged show on the road for a limited series of concerts in Europe. However before all the a-ha activity kicks into full gear, we need to share some big updates from Savoy, who are having a very busy week as they release their first album in more than ten years.
Single: January Thaw
The second single from Savoy's new album is 'January Thaw', which was released on January 5, 2018. To stream on your preferred platform, click this link: http://smarturl.it/JanuaryThaw.
The video for the single was filmed during the solar eclipse in August 2017, and was directed by Jason Brandenberg.
Concert at Parkteateret
Savoy performed together for the first time in nearly ten years last night, to celebrate the release of their new album. The set held some surprises, such as a guest appearance by Zoe Gnecco, who sang on several songs, including 'Under the Makeup'', from a-ha's 2015 album 'Cast In Steel'.
Tears from a stone
I still cry
End of the line
World of trouble
Under the makeup
