Celebrated Greek composer-artist Vangelis will release his new album Nocturne on Decca Records. A set of solo piano pieces, it features 11 new tracks plus new versions of some of his best-known work, including the title theme from Chariots Of Fire and the ‘Love Theme’ from Blade Runner.

The album features a wealth of new piano compositions inspired by night time, and by Vangelis’ long-held passion for space. New tracks include ‘Nocturnal Promenade,’ the track that opens the album and is its first single, as well as ‘Through the Night Mist’, ‘Sweet Nostalgia’ and ‘Lonesome.’ For the first time, the artist also plays grand piano on the record.

Nocturne is the latest of Vangelis’ works to be linked to themes of science, history and exploration. In addition to his Academy Award-winning score for Chariots of Fire, he wrote the choral symphony ‘Mythodea’ for NASA’s 2001 mission to Mars, and the music for such films as Antarctica, 1492: Conquest of Paradise and Alexander. His music was also featured in the documentary series Cosmos by Carl Sagan.
