A-HA – I’Ve Been Losing You.

downloadA-HA was invited to perform at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in 1998. Paul wrote „Summer Moved On” especially for this performance. They also performed „The Sun Always Shines on TV.” This performance was A-ha‘s comeback into the world of music, yet the band’s set was controversially omitted from a programme of highlights from that concert that was televised in the UK. Nevertheless, the band returned to the studio. Those recording sessions resulted in 2000’s Minor Earth Major Sky, an international tour, and a webcast performance of the band opening the new Vallhall Arena in Oslo on the 24 and 25 March 2001. That webcast was the third most-viewed webcast concert ever with 3.6 million hits, along with the longest average viewing time—28 minutes. Only webcasts by Madonna and Paul McCartney, also produced and filmed by Chris Frampton’s international webcaster MediaWave, recorded more hits. A-ha‘s video for „I Wish I Cared” was one of the first fully web-based animated flash music video to be made available. (The first was Duran Duran’s flash video for the 2000 song „Someone Else Not Me”.) The album reached platinum status, with sales of 1.5 million copies, and spawned four singles: „Summer Moved On”, „Minor Earth Major Sky”, „Velvet” and „The Sun Never Shone That Day”. „Summer Moved On” went to No. 1 in 17 countries. With the music video for the song „Velvet”, A-ha received criticism for flirting with necrophilia.Paul has said of the comeback album, „We made a demo very quickly and intuitively, and that gave us the contract. But then we were at the next stage: is it a record? There wasn’t any panic, it was only about the final most difficult fractions, coming up with the finishing touch. In fact, some of the songs were untouched since New York. I think we did a good job.”
