A new supergroup ... featuring a-ha?



Aha_take Just when you thought the concept of "supergroups" faded with your acid-washed jeans and feathered hair, here comes some unexpected news.

According to the U.K.'s Sun, Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman has joined with a-ha's Magne Furuholmen to form a new collective, tentatively named The Apparatjik.

The group's first project: composing a theme song for a new BBC television show called Amazon.

"Everyone asks what inspired us, what we've been trying to steal and what we listened to as we were growing up," Berryman told the Sun. "The first band I loved was a-ha."

Speaking of a-ha, the latest word out there is that the band has been in and out of the studio, but a new album won't come out until next year at the earliest.
