Halfway Around the World was A-Teens' second single from their second album Teen Spirit.

After traveling literally halfway around the world promoting their album Teen Spirit, they released the second single with medium success. The single peaked at number one in Sweden and Japan after a few weeks inside the Top Ten earning a gold certification.[1] The song charted well in Asia and Latin America, peaking at number nine in Mexico, number seventeen in Argentina, number ten in Chile,number two in Peru, number 8 in Australia, number 15 in France and number 30 in UK

The single was released with the B-side, "Can't Stop the Pop", which was first released on the Japanese edition of the album.

The single was delayed in the United Kingdom along with the album. When it finally got released it only reached number thirty.

Music video[edit]

The video premiered in February 2001 and it was directed by Mikadelica. It shows the A-Teens in different parts of the world (Peru, Paris, somewhere in the North, and China) and the action takes place in different seasons, but all of this ends up taking place on a set for a film shooting. There is also a love story between two staff members.
