Brian Eno is set to release an expanded reissue of 'Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks' in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

The extended edition will be released on July 19 and will feature the original album remastered by Miles Showell of Abbey Road studios, as well as an accompanying album of 11 new compositions that reimagine the soundtrack to For All Mankind, a 1989 landmark documentary film drawn from original footage of the Apollo program.

Tracks from the original 'Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks' LP were written and produced by Eno, alongside his brother Roger and Daniel Lanois, and have been used in a number of television shows and films, including Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, and Drive. An Ending (Ascent) featured in the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony.

The album served as a springboard for Eno's long solo career, while Lanois went on to produce several albums for U2, including 'The Joshua Tree', 'Achtung Baby' and 'No Line On The Horizon'.

The remastered editon finds the trio working together for the first time since the original album in 1983. Lanois contributions include Capsule, Last Step From The Surface and Fine-grained, while Roger's are Waking Up, Under The Moon and Strange Quiet.
