a-ha reswizzle their next single

On September 21, a-ha will release the second single from the album, "Foot Of The Mountain", in the UK. "Nothing Is Keeping You Here" is not only a bold remix of the album track, it also appears that the lyrics have been altered and a new vocal recorded. It might very well be a completely new recording.

Praise be to the interwebs. After rummaging around a bit, I stumbled across this clip of the track on YouTube moments ago.

It appears they eschewed the more understated, rock elements of the original and replaced it with a chunky, electronic soundscape. It still maintains the grand, dramatic flair of the original. Morten loves to hit those lung crushing, high notes. Bless his heart. The whole thing sounds like it was sprinkled with bits of "The Sun Always Shines On TV".
