German Musical Legend Ute Lemper Channels HG Wells In Her New Single And Video, ‘Time Traveler’

If you’ve read the book ‘The Time Machine’, by HG Wells, or seen the 1960 film starring Rod Taylor, or the more recent 2002 film starring Guy Pearce, you will be familiar with the description of time passing as though the fluttering pages of a flipbook. Both exhilarating and terrifying, significant and mundane moments merge as one into a story of untrammelled change. With her new video, ‘Time Traveler’, German musical legend Ute Lemper brings this same vision to life, telling the story as viewed through the picture window on her ship, as she sails the seas of time.

“A-Ha Was Not A Stage For Pushing Politics” – Eiken Bruhn Shares Interview With A-ha’s Magne Furuholmen

November, 16th, a windowless dressing room in the catacombs of the Bremen concert hall ÖVB Arena, where everything seems to be coloured in beige, the faux leather couches and even the bizarre table-arrangement of a plastic agave. Next door Morten Harket is practising scales; A-ha will appear on stage in this sold out arena in one and a half hours. Keyboarder and co-songwriter Magne Furuholmen (57) is using the occasion to promote his current solo record “White X-Mas Lies”. It’s near the end of the first part of A-ha’s ongoing world tour and he seems a bit tired, but answers all questions with a friendly attentiveness.
