  • Miscellaneous

  • The song "Analogue (All I Want)" was originally a song called "Minor Key Sonata (Analogue)", which (like the rest of the 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 re-written as "Analogue (All I Want)" and re-recorded, 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 B-side to "Analogue (All I Want)", "Case Closed on Silver Shore", was also produced during the Analogue sessions by Terefe, and mixed by Flood, but was never released on the album. It was written by Paul Waaktaar-Savoy.
  • The lead vocal on "The Summers of Our Youth" is by Furuholmen (the second time on an A-ha release), with Harket joining him on the chorus.
  • In their live version of "Holyground", Waaktaar-Savoy plays an omnichord.
  • The songs "Cosy Prisons" and "Over the Treetops" includes backing vocals by Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
