Neuen Album

A-ha setzt auf Synthie-Pop

Die Band a-ha knüpft mit „Foot Of The Mountain" an ihre Erfolge aus den achtziger Jahren an. Auf dem neuen Album widmen die Norweger sich wieder verstärkt dem Synthie-Pop, klingen aber modern genug, um nicht in der Nostalgieecke zu landen. Olaf Neumann traf den a-ha-Sänger Morten Harket in Berlin.
