Eventually, the project turned into more than one production, and they were joined by the talented Norwegian orchestra Arctic Philharmonic. What emerged from these sessions is a beautiful album, and accompanying film, which details the band’s vision of a collective connection to the environment.

“‘True North’ is an a-ha letter, from the Arctic Circle, a poem from the far north of Norway,” Furuholmen said.

Since their worldwide breakthrough with “Take On Me” in 1985, a-ha has continued to adapt and evolve. Now, with what is both their 11th studio album and the documentation of its creation, a-ha has entered a new phase.
