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.
Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois produced the original Apollo album, which was recorded at Daniel and his brother Bob's studio in Hamilton, Ontario. Lanois also collaborated with Eno on several other projects, most famously producing several albums for U2, including multi-platinum The Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby and No Line On The Horizon.
Apollo was the first recording experience for Roger Eno and was the springboard into a long solo career of his own. He went on to record a number of other film scores, with and without his brother.
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."
"One of Eno's most stately pieces. Its other worldly qualities reflect a mature artist approaching his work with a craftsman's care and consideration" BBC
