The previous Friday, 9 February, they were joined on stage at Oslo Spektrum by special guest Susanne Sundfør, who sang with Morten on “I’ve Been Losing You” and “The Sun Always Shines on TV”. Since winning one of the a-ha talent grants in 2010, Sundfør has gone on to become one of the most popular and critically acclaimed performers in Norway.

While on tour with a-ha in Germany, Paul and Lauren took the opportunity to do some promotion for the new Savoy album. The interviews included Mucke und Mehr,, and a video interview with Buch und Ton.

There was also a book launch of the German edition of “Tears From a Stone” at the Norwegian embassy in Berlin on 29 January, where Paul was joined by author Ørjan Nilsson. Together they were interviewed by the German edition of Rolling Stone magazine. While in Berlin, Paul also did a new interview with Richard Green for BBC Radio Devon, which was broadcast on 10 February and can be heard here.
