The song was written by guitarist Pål Waaktaar. It was released as the third single from their debut studio album Hunting High and Low. “The Sun Always Shines on T.V.” was released in autumn 1985, becoming the second successful single from Hunting High and Low and one of the band’s most recognizable and popular songs.

“The Sun Always Shines on T.V.” is thrilling. Starting as a sad ballad, it explodes into something much more, as chugging guitars and operatic synths keep pace with Harket’s evocative vocal stylings.

The music video for “The Sun Always Shines on T.V.” was directed by Steve Barron and was shot on location over three days early October 1985 at the Victorian Gothic Church of Saint Alban the Martyr, both situated in Teddington, Richmond upon Thames, in England.
