WATCH: New Video For Brian Eno Classic

The newly remastered 'An Ending (Ascent)' gets a new video captured by astronaut Jeff Williams

Later this month, Brian Eno will release an expanded, remastered edition of his 1983 album Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks, featuring a whole collection of new material.

Ahead of its release, he’s now shared a video for the newly remastered ‘An Ending (Ascent)’, one of the most seminal tracks from the album. The video features 4K footage of Earth captured 250 miles above ground by astronaut Jeff Williams during his mission on the International Space Station in 2016.

The new edition of the album is being released to mark 50 years since the Apollo 11 moon landing, and includes 11 new instrumental compositions that reimagine the soundtrack to For All Mankind, the film which the original album was initially recorded to accompany. He recorded the new tracks with Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno, bringing together the team that created the original album for the first time since its release.

The new edition of Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks is due out on July 19 and can be pre-ordered here. It will be available in digital, CD and vinyl editions. You can hear one of the 11 new tracks, ‘Like I Was A Spectator’, here, and find out about the asteroid that was recently named after Eno here.
