When a new a-ha album did not appear, and solo albums began to be released, it was feared that this was a-ha's last song. Ironically entitled "Shapes That Go Together," there was a significant amount of discord within the band at the time of the song's release.
This song was released in February 1994. a-ha's last concert of the 90s was held in June in Russia, with the band going their separate ways afterwards.
This song was a-ha's biggest 'flop' since the first release of "Take On Me." It reached #27 on the charts in the UK, and was in the charts for 3 weeks total. It did not chart in the top 50 in any other country.
This is the only a-ha song released as a single that never found a home on an album.
The song was the official theme of the 1994 Paralympic games held in Lillehammer, Norway following the Olympic winter games a few weeks earlier.
