News: IHSAHN releases stunning A-HA cover ‚Manhattan Skyline‘ ahead of EP release

Shapeshifting progressive metal pioneer IHSAHN has once again pushed the boundaries of unconstrained creation, with the release of his striking single/video tribute to Norwegian pop pioneers A-HA. ‚Manhattan Skyline‘ is taken from his new EP Pharos, out 11th September on Candlelight Records, and features the phenomenal vocal talents of Einar Solberg (LEPROUS).

‚Manhattan Skyline‘ was originally released in 1986 by A-HA and reached number 13 in the UK Singles Chart. With a refresh for 2020 IHSAHN has produced a delicate but true-to-the-original tribute, combining a soft ballad-like verse that explodes into a bombastic rock chorus featuring all of the melodramatic grandeur of the original.

Directed and filmed by Troll Toftenes, the video sees IHSAHN at his most passionate and embracing. With the breath-taking landscape of Norway as the backdrop, IHSAHN plays his Aristides T/0 Lilac Pearl Satin Guitar atop Gaustatoppen, the highest mountain in Norway, at sunset whilst Einar Solberg’s (LEPROUS) earnest and emotional vocals soar to other worldly levels of brilliance. The spectacle never relinquishes its hold on the viewer.

IHSAHN admits that his love of A-HA is not new, revealing: “There are some hints of A-HA even on the second Emperor album!”
