a-ha feat. Ingrid Helene Håvik – The Sun Always Shines On TV (MTV Unplugged)

From no other artist I attended as many ‘farewell tours’ as from a-ha. And luckily, they decided to extend their career even further.

Last summer, on 22 and 23 June, the band played MTV Unplugged sessions at Øygardshallen (Giske Harbour Hall) on the Norwegian island of Giske, which will be released 6 October on the live CD/DVD/Blu-ray Summer Solstice. A-ha was accompanied on stage by Ian McCulloch (Echo & The Bunnymen), Ingrid Helene Håvik (Highasakite), Lissie and Alison Moyet.

Among the 21-song setlist were two brand new tracks (one of which, This Is Our Home, is released as a single) and stripped down performances of all of the band’s classic tracks. One of these, a re-arranged version of The Sun Always Shines On TV, featuring additional vocals by Ingrid Helene Håvik, has been released as a single as well.

Following these MTV Unplugged sessions a-ha will go on an acoustic tour throughout 2018. Their third farewell tour? ?
