MTV Unplugged – Summer Solstice (2017)

Entre os fãs do a-ha, era quase unanimidade o desejo de ver a banda fazendo um álbum acústico. Ao longo dos anos, a banda brindou seus fãs se apresentando dessa forma em algumas ocasiões específicas, e então finalmente o momento chegou.

O a-ha MTV Unplugged – Summer Solstice foi gravado na ilha de Giske, Noruega. Em entrevistas, a banda chegou a cogitar a possibilidade deste álbum ser gravado no Brasil, porém, o destino escolhido acabou sendo mesmo em território norueguês.

Pål Waaktaar-Savoy: “Escolher Giske foi como a maioria das coisas que fazemos: Foram 50% de chance e 50% planejamento. Estávamos discutindo muitos lugares diferentes para fazer esses shows especiais – entre eles, Manaus na selva amazônica, Berlim, Londres e Nova York. No final do dia, foi o estúdio Ocean Sound Recordings em Giske que fez a diferença. Sabíamos que podíamos ensaiar sem perturbações e uma qualidade de som extremamente boa “.

O álbum conta com 21 músicas, entre elas, quatro faixas nunca antes lançadas pela banda. Duas faixas inéditas, “This Is Our Home” e “A Break In The Clouds”, “Sox Of The Fox” que é uma regravação da música “The Vacant” dos Bridges (Banda de Paul e Mags antes do a-ha) e “The Killing Moon”, clássico do Echo & The Bunnymen.

Além de Ian McCulloch (Scoundrel Days e The Killing Moon), o projeto contou com as participações de Lissie (I´ve Been Losing You), Ingrid Helene Håvik (The Sun Always Shines on TV) e Alison Moyet (Summer Moved On).

This Is Our Home

(Magne Furuholmen)

It matters what you do
It matters what you say
It matters that you lead the way

It matters what you think
It matters what you know
There is no other place to go

For this is our home
This is our home
This is where we belong

It matters what you say
It matters what you do
It matters what I put you through

For this is our home
This our home
This the place

This is our home
This is our home
This is the place where we belong

For this is our home
This is our home
This is where we belong


A Break In The Clouds

(Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

Ah, I’m on again

A momentary set-back
Well, you know

And like before
I’m hiding
More than I show

But I
I just wanted you to know

A break in the clouds
Means something to me
Means something to me
I don’t know what
A shot in the dark
Means something to me
A lot

Ah I’m back again
A temporary shut-down
Well, you know

And like before
We’re making up the story
As we go

And I
I just wanted you to know

A fork in the road
Means nothing to me
Means nothing to me
I don’t know why
A turn of events
Means nothing to me
Inside

And I do appreciate you being there for me
I can’t make it any other way

Yes, I
I just wanted you to know

A break in the clouds
Means something to me
Means something to me
I don’t know what
A shot in the dark
Means something to me
A lot


Sox Of The Fox
(Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

Tired socks
Tired shoes
Made two many footprints
Broken too many news
I’m the fox
You can’t catch me with your dogs

I run too fast
Move too quick
Bite too hard
I know all your tricks
I’m the fox
You can’t catch me with your dogs

I cannot have no chains
I can’t make no friends
Can’t show much love to you
But don’t you look at me
Maybe you’ll catch me with your eyes
Maybe you’ll catch me with your eyes

I’m the fox
You can’t catch me with your dogs


The Killing Moon
(Ian Stephen Mcculloch / Leslie Thomas Pattinson / Peter Louis Vincent De Freitas / William Alfred Sergeant)
Under blue Moon I saw you
So soon you’ll take me
Up in your arms
Too late to beg you or cancel it
Though I know it must be the killing time
Unwillingly mine
Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him
In starlit nights I saw you
So cruelly you kissed me
Your lips a magic world
Your sky all hung with jewels
The killing Moon
Will come too soon
Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him
Under blue Moon I saw you
So soon you’ll take me
Up in your arms
Too late to beg you or cancel it
Though I know it must be the killing time
Unwillingly mine
Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him
You give yourself to him
Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him
