A-ha plans comeback after 30 years

Aha

A-ha, the Norwegian band that topped the Billboards with their hit "Take on Me" in 1985, has planned a reunion 30 years after their international break-through.
 A-ha confirms that the band is planning a reunion, and has committed to a cooperation. The agreement ensures that all three band members, Magne Furuholmen, Morten Harket and Paul Waaktaar-Savoy, will be working together for a period of two years.
 
Waaktaar-Savoy says that he already has prepared a couple of "killer-songs." The idea of a reunion came about when he wanted to test a few tunes together with Harket. 
 
"When Morten and Paul started talking about working together again I basically had three options: "To refuse it alltogether, to let them go ahead without me, or to join them," Furuholmen explains.
 
The reunion happens on the 30th anniversary of the year that Aha climbed to the top of the Billboard list with their international hit "Take on Me.
 
On Wednesday the band will attend a press conference at the Norwegian Embassy in Berlin, where the reunion most likely will be made official.
