The press release continued, “In repeated vignettes, the multidimensional film ‘True North’ follows this narrative arc through actors portraying life in the North as well as documenting the band recording music over two days in Bodø, Norway. This is a unique release from a-ha that embodies the spirit of their new songs, with long-time a-ha collaborator Stian Andersen at the helm as director.”

He said, “It has been an honorable task to direct the film ‘True North’. It is also a great pleasure to write and create the narrative to match the beautiful songs of a-ha in this film.”

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