Ihsahn Premieres Video For Cover Of A-ha’s “Manhattan Skyline” Feat. Einar Solberg (Leprous)

Ihsahn has premiered a new video for his cover of A-ha’s “Manhattan Skyline.” This track features Einar Solberg (Leprous) and it will appear on Ihsahn‘s new EP “Pharos,“ which is set to be released on September 11. Ihsahn said the following about his admiration for A-ha:

“There are some hints of A-ha even on the second Emperor album. I never wanted to be as one-dimensional as this black metal image. When I turned 40, I stopped caring but if you start out playing black metal when you’re 16, it’s hardly because you want to be everybody’s favorite.”

The Artist That Created The Cover For Ihsahn’s “Telemark” Calls Out Taylor Swift For Using Similar Artwork For “Folklore”

Artist David Thiérrée, who created the artwork for Ihsahn‘s “Telemark“ EP, has called out Taylor Swift for using similar artwork for her new album “Folklore.“ Thiérrée commented:

“Well, folks, I ‘m not the only one to think that Taylor Swift’ s new visual is very Metal… Even very close to Ihsahn ‘s artworks I made. I could have done it for her, probably for a cheaper price than what she paid 😁😅”

Ihsahn added:

“So, anyone check out the new @taylorswift yet? Personally I like the design🤯😂”

Ihsahn Premieres “Spectre At The Feast” Video

Ihsahn has premiered a new video for his new song “Spectre At The Feast.” This track is from his new EP “Pharos,” which will be released on September 11.

Ihsahn told Metal Hammer the following about the song:

“It’s probably the most straightforward song on the EP. It’s got this almost pop-rock attitude. Lyrically, it’s kind of a fly-on-the-wall perspective on society – all the superficial, stupid things people turn into something meaningful when they’re not. It’s musing on when the facade will break.”

He also added the following about his “Pharos” EP:

“Telemark was everything that was close to my heart: basic guitar riffing, screaming vocals. I thought, ‘I need to do a sequel where I do the exact opposite’ – things that I don’t know how to do, explore sonic territory that I haven’t explored.”

Here’s the track listing for “Pharos”:

01. “Losing Altitude”
02. “Spectre At The Feast”
03. “Pharos”
04. “Roads” (Portishead cover)
05. “Manhattan Skyline” (A-ha cover, featuring Einar Solberg of Leprous)
