Landmark Album Remastered & Extended On Double LP!
Special Release For 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 Moon Landing!
Includes Disc Of 11 New Compositions!
Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks was written, produced and performed by Brian Eno together with his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois. The music was originally recorded in 1983 for a landmark feature-length documentary, For All Mankind, directed by American journalist, film director and screenwriter Al Reinert. The film features 35mm footage of the Apollo 11 moon landing with real-time commentary, as well as the Apollo astronauts sharing their recollections of the momentous events surrounding it.
The music from the original album is highly recognizable, and tracks from it have been streamed in excess of 300 million times. Since its release, many of the songs from Apollo have found a life of their own, featuring in any number of films, television shows and commercials - most notably Trainspotting, Traffic, 28 Days Later, Drive and Love. "An Ending (Ascent)" was also used in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony.
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing this remastered, extended edition of the album is available. This special anniversary release features the original album remastered by Abbey Road's Miles Showell, as well as an accompanying album of 11 new instrumental compositions that reimagine the soundtrack to For All Mankind. The 11 new tracks on Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks find Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno working collectively for the first time since the original album in 1983. Lanois contributed 3 compositions; "Capsule", "Last Step From The Surface" and "Fine-Grained", while Roger Eno's are "Waking Up", "Under The Moon" and "Strange Quiet".
