Wedding Present – Hit Parade – 2LP

release date: 23rd September 2022

The tracks were compiled as two LPs called ‘Hit Parade 1’ and ‘Hit Parade 2’ and re-released as a double CD in 2003 called ‘The Hit Parade’. The plan to release 12 singles in a year was an attempt to match Elvis Presley’s record of 12 top 40 singles in a year which he had achieved in 1957. The singles, each in an edition of 10,000, were deleted soon after release. They were critically acclaimed and each charted in the top 40.

Having sold 33 million albums and gained worldwide attention, Aqua stands as a one-of-a-kind moment in Danish music history worth celebrating.
