a-ha releasing ’25’ retrospective in Europe with farewell single ‘Butterfly, Butterfly’

a-ha, '25'

With its year-long farewell tour underway, Norwegian pop trio a-ha this week announced it will release 25 a new 2CD retrospective covering its output over the past quarter century — in its home country later this month.

The 39-track set is due out in Norway on July 19 and “in other territories in the coming months,” although Rhino Records confirms it’s “a European-only release” and will not come out in the U.S. — not surprising, given that Rhino recently released a-ha’s The Singles: 1984-2004 in the U.S. for the first time.

The new anthology includes the a-ha’s just-released single “Butterfly, Butterfly (The Last Hurrah)” — which you can hear below —  plus tracks off each of the band’s albums, with some songs appearing as remixes, single versions or edits (see full tracklist below).

This month also sees the expanded reissue of a-ha’s first two albums, which are being released in the U.S. exclusively via Rhino.com; the label plans to start shipping pre-orders of Hunting High and Low and Scoundrel Days on Tuesday. See full details here.
