This is based on a translation from Spanish Wikipedia.

Mary Is Coming is the first album released by the band Savoy. It was a different sound from Paul Waaktaar-Savoy's previous band, a-ha, which had gone on hiatus. Savoy aimed to be more guitar-oriented. Mary Is Coming was recorded in Oslo and New York City. The album sold a total of 50,000 copies in Norway and went Gold. Sales in most other countries were unspectacular, leaving Savoy without a worldwide deal. The A&R from Warner that signed the band as a spinoff of a-ha had also left the label and a lack of support from them led Savoy to later sign with EMI in Norway. "Velvet" was re-recorded by a-ha on their 2000 comeback album Minor Earth Major Sky.
