Morten Harket is ‘Scared Of Heights’.

Following his much-celebrated return to pop with the rather fantastic Lightning, Norwegian pop minstrel Morten Harket has followed up with the equally spectacular Scared Of Heights. The song is going to be the international lead single of his upcoming album ‘Out Of My Hands’. Check it out:

Scared Of Heights picks up where Lightning left off, in that it is a gorgeous string-laden pop song that echoes the eighties in a nod to Morten’s legacy with a-ha. On top of that, the falsetto chorus with Morten’s lush voice is truly wonderful. I really hope this record is a success, as it definitely sounds like one.

New Music: ‘Lightning’ by Morten Harket.

Former a-ha frontman Morten Harket has just released a new album called ‘Out Of My Hands’, complete with a shiny new single Lightning to go with it. It is a gorgeous, synth-laden pop track with some soaring strings that really elevate the listener. It’s very much in the style of the adult contemporary pop like Take That and Coldplay but with an ice cool Nordic touch. Universal Music Norge has revealed a two-minute preview for you to check out and I highly recommend that you do.

Ah! Those synths!
