a-ha Celebrate 25th Anniversary With Final Tour & First 2 Albums Deluxe Extended Editions!

| On 07, Jun 2010

After nine albums, an iconic music video, and sales of more than 36 million records worldwide, a-ha celebrate their 25th anniversary and final farewell year with the release of their first two albums as deluxe extended editions. Both ‘Hunting High and Low’ and ‘Scoundrel Days’ will mark this momentous anniversary when Rhino releases them on 12 July 2010.
 
a-ha’s debut album ‘Hunting High and Low’ sold more than eight million copies worldwide and delivered  four  top 10 UK hits including a number one spot for The Sun Always Shines On TV. In the fall of 1986, Take On Me and The Sun Always Shines on T.V. were nominated for 11 MTV Video Awards together, finally winning eight. This expanded deluxe edition uncovers several rare and unreleased treasures, including original 7” version of Take On Me, an early demo of Lesson One, demos for The Sun Always Shines On T.V., Train of Thought and title track Hunting High and Low. This massively extended version also includes a demo of fan favourite B-side Driftwood. Full tracklisting follows below.
 
Scoundrel Days’, a-ha’s second album, was originally released in 1986 and sold over five million copies around the world. The expanded deluxe edition contains demos or alternate versions of each track on the album. And that’s not all, the album will also feature unreleased live performances of Train of Thought, I’ve Been Losing You, Blue Sky and Cry Wolf, all recorded at a show in Croydon, England. Full tracklisting follows below.
 
The road has been long in a-ha’s growth, from hanging out in a cold cabin in Asker, Norway, and condemned flats in London, to their status as world superstars, the multi-million selling Norwegian trio will also mark the 25th Anniversary of their groundbreaking and breakthrough, debut album ‘Hunting High And Low’ when they perform the album in full for the very first time at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday 8 October 2010. This SOLD OUT Royal Albert Hall Show precedes a-ha’s ‘Ending On A High Note’ final farewell tour, announced in February this year and coming to the UK in November (see full dates below).
