It’s that time again: there’s a new release from a-ha.
Given how hugely successful the Norwegian trio remains around the world, it’s always a little amusing to think about how many Americans still view them as only having a couple of hits. In fact, the band just celebrated their 30th anniversary last year, releasing a new album, Cast in Steel, their 10th full-length studio effort to date.
Last month, Phil Collins began the process of giving his fans a gift that’s been 35 years in the making: the deluxe reissuing and remastering of his back catalog of solo albums. Inevitably, the first round of reissues kicked off with the album that’s hitting the big 3-5 this year, 1981’s Face Value, but it was released simultaneously with one of Collins’ more underrated efforts, 1993’s Both Sides.
Today, round two begins, and the offerings will be just as exciting for fans as the first bunch proved to be.
