I remember hearing the “Balcony Scene” song in the movie Romeo and Juliet and I immediately fell in love with this beautiful piano piece. That is the first time I hear from Craig Armstrong.

The second time I hear Craig Armstrong is in the movie Cruel Intentions. The song “This Love” still gives me goosebumps until this very day. The song is so powerful and moving. It still touches me after all those years.

The Space Between Us is actually the debut album of Craig Armstrong. The first release is in 1998 and now it is available on vinyl for the first time.

So who is Craig Armstrong anyway? He is a composer from Scotland. He is famous for making a lot of movie scores. Just to name a few of his scores, Moulin Rouge, Love Actually, The Great Gatsby and Me Before You. For the score of Moulin Rouge Craig has won the Golden Globe Award for best original score. I actually love all the movies from the list above.

“I look back at the The Space Between Us album with very fond memories.
At the time I had been doing a lot of work playing piano and arranging orchestra for massive Attack’s Protection album.
Which for me was such a great experience as I was such a fan of their work.

When Marc Picken and Massive Attack asked me to be an artist on their new label Melankolic,
it was really unexpected but led to such a fantastic musical experience for me.

At the time I was working with Baz Luhrmann on Romeo and Juliet so the combination of this and my work with Massive Attack was a special creative and collaborative period in my career.
In The Space Between Us I wanted to mix my influences in classical , trip hop and electronica.

What I find really touching is that so many young musicians come up to me and say what a great influence this album was for them.
And it’s amazing after all these years that it’s still played around the world.
I hope you enjoy this vinyl as much as I did making it.”
