Analogue

Song Information

"Analogue (All I Want)" is a song by the Norwegian band a-ha. It is the title track of their eighth studio album, which was released in 2005. The song itself was released as a single (30 December 2005 in Germany, 23 January 2006 in the UK, and 30 January 2006 in Norway). The song was re-written and re-recorded after it was first recorded. The original version of the song was titled "Minor Key Sonata (Analogue)", and (like the rest of the Analogue album) was produced by Martin Terefe and mixed by Flood. Max Martin was then brought in to turn "Minor Key Sonata (Analogue)" into a more radio-friendly song, with a less surreal lyric and catchier chorus. The song was then retitled "Analogue (All I Want)" and is the only track on the album not produced by Terefe. Upon its release as a single, it became the band's first Top 10 hit in the UK since 1988.The video, which was shot in black and white, was directed by Howard Greenhalgh, who has made over 100 music videos.
