Fascinated by space and having previously collaborated with NASA, Vangelis releases a new double vinyl album inspired by nighttime, along with solo piano versions of his best-loved hits, including the Chariots of Fire and Blade Runner themes. Nocturne will be released on 25 January.
Here’s the album’s first single, the brand new song Nocturnal Promenade:
Other new songs are Through the Night Mist, Sweet Nostalgia and Lonesome.
Fans are being offered the opportunity to hear music from Nocturne before its release, by taking photographs of the moon and uploading them to the webpage: vangelisnocturne.com
Tracks for the album will be released at nightfall throughout the winter, tying in with moon cycles and key events in the astronomical calendar.
