a-ha / MTV Unplugged: Summer Solstice issued across multiple formats
http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/ ... e-formats/

a-ha‘s long promised MTV Unplugged album – subtitled Summer Solstice – will be released next month in no less than seven physical formats.

The concert was filmed in Norway in June and features 21 tracks, including two new songs (This Is Our Home and A Break In The Clouds) and guest performances from the likes of Alison Moyet, Ian McCulloch and Lissie.

This is not a release where fans can complain about lack of choice, since this is available as a 2CD audio set, 2CD+Blu-ray or 2CD+DVD combo packs, 3LP vinyl, individual DVD and blu-ray and a ‘fanbox’ which includes a hardcover book, poster, badge, wristband and what SDE is pretty sure is 2CD+Blu-ray+DVD. This may or may not be available only in Germany.

This release is a springboard for the newly titled MTV Unplugged Tour 2018 which kicks off in January in Germany and ends in London’s O2 on 14 February.

MTV Unplugged: Summer Solstice will be released on 6 October 2017.

Robbie wrote:Official charts analysis: Liam Gallagher debuts at No.1 with more than 100,000 album sales
Starting in 1989, MTV Unplugged was both a popular programme for the MTV network and a potent chart force with many artists enjoying big sales from albums recorded for the series. Its effectiveness and the frequency of such programmes has declined considerably since then but Norway's veteran pop trio A-ha's MTV Unplugged: Summer Solstice – which includes guest vocals from Alison Moyet and Ian McCullough among others – powers to a No.6 debut on sales of 6,982 copies this week. The first such album to chart since 2012 – when Florence & The Machine's MTV Unplugged debuted and peaked at No.27 – it delivers A-ha its seventh Top 10 album and 16th Top 75 album some 32 years into their recording career.

Rewinding the Charts: In 1985, A-Ha's 'Take on Me' Hit No. 1, Thanks to MTV
http://www.billboard.com/articles/colum ... ing-charts
10/19/2017 by Keith Caulfield

On Oct. 19, 1985, the Norwegian trio ruled the chart with the help of an imaginative music video

In 1985, MTV, already known for making stars of such visually driven music acts as Duran Duran and Madonna, added another notch to its belt: A-ha’s ascension to the top of the Billboard Hot 100.

The Norwegian trio — Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, who were 22, 26 and 24, respectively — released its debut album, Hunting High and Low, in 1985, and shot an eye-catching video for lead single “Take On Me.” Directed by Steve Barron (Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”), the clip’s combination of pencil-sketch animation and live action earned it heavy rotation on MTV, and the track reached No. 1 in its 15th week on the chart, making A-ha the first Norwegian group to top the Hot 100.

The video won six MTV Video Music Awards in 1986 and helped A-ha nab a Grammy nod for best new artist. But A-ha charted only two more singles on the Hot 100, “The Sun Always Shines on TV,” which hit No. 20, and “Cry Wolf,” which reached No. 50. However, the act sold 36 million albums worldwide (according to its official website) and released eight more studio sets before disbanding in 2010.

“Take On Me” returned to the Hot 100 in 2013, as interpolated by Pitbull’s “Feel This Moment,” featuring Christina Aguilera, which hit No. 8. Harket sang the track with Pitbull and Aguilera at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards and told Billboard backstage, “Take On Me” is “a resilient thing [that] lives its own life.”

As further proof of that resilience, the song returned to the charts two years later, thanks to a remix by producer/DJ Kygo. The new version hit No. 25 on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart in September 2015.

The song has been reworked once again, as an intimate, acoustic ballad, on A-ha's new release, MTV Unplugged Summer Solstice, recorded in June in Norway.
