“Hunting High and Low” is a song by the Norwegian band A-ha. It was released in 1986 as the final single from the band’s debut album of the same name.
“Hunting High and Low” was released in the summer of 1986 and became the third most successful single from Hunting High and Low on the charts and one of the band’s most recognizable and popular songs. The song did not chart in the U.S., but was a Top 5 hit in Britain and in Ireland.
The original album version was produced by Tony Mansfield and is played with synthesizers. For release as a single, the track was remixed, containing additional production by Alan Tarney and features an orchestra.
The video was directed by Steve Barron, and once again utilises animation techniques which show singer Morten Harket “morphing” into various animals (an eagle, a white shark, and a lion). In 1986, the British TV show Blue Peter featured a special documentary on the making of the “Hunting High and Low” video.
