This was the first song released from the new album. „Lifelines”.
The song was released on Valentine’s Day, ironically, considering the subject matter of the song.
The video was filmed on location in Cuba.
The theme of the video was based on the Biblical floods and Noah’s Ark.
There are many famous faces entering the ‚VIP entrance’ in this video if you watch closely. You may spot look-a-likes for Desmond Tutu, Madonna, Lenny Kravitz, and the queen of England, to name a few.
The final scene once again is used for a-ha to make fun of themselves. The VIP entrance turns out to be an entrance to a work hall for the crew.
Morten: ” ‚Forever Not Yours’ is one of those songs that sums us up. Melancholy, and at the same time uplifting – soaring.”
