    If you yearn for Yanni, then I have good news for you, you New Age buff! The singer will return to peak form with the release Truth of Touch on February 8, 2011 through YanniWake and Rocket Science Ventures. The international superstar will also launch a major North American tour in 2011 starting March 22 in Peoria, Illinois.

    On the new platter, Yanni returns as the prolific composer/pianist the world has come to know and appreciate. This album--his first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years--is a return to the genre Yanni has helped to create and advance. Truth of Touchis unmistakably Yanni, yet with a fresh, edgy new sound. "I work the rhythms in this album," Yanni said about the new material. "There is a beautiful complexity in these rhythms, a new sound design. I think the melodic content is very strong and very memorable. I was having fun with this album and that's going to become apparent."

    Fans can pre-order the album now in various bundles, including a limited edition signed deluxe package which includes CD, t-shirt, vanilla scented pillar candle, umbrella and a photo personally signed by Yanni himself. Pre-order packages are available here.

    Yanni will tour 40 major U.S. and Canadian cities including Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Toronto, Washington D.C, Miami, Atlanta, Denver, San Francisco and more. The dates are below.

    Also, in other Yanni news: YANNI: A Living Legacy, the new PBS program airing now through mid-December, takes its viewers on a narrated musical journey from past to present performances, including an introduction to Truth of Touch. Interviewed in the composer's studio, Yanni reflects on the extraordinary moments in his career to give his audience a candid look at the performances that made him famous. This special event features his 1993 Live at the Acropolis concert in the 2000-year-old Herod Atticus Theater in Athens, still considered one of the top PBS fundraisers of all time. Also featured are the history-making performances at the Taj Mahal and the Forbidden City. Yanni shares his experience as the first westerner allowed to perform at these venerable monuments. Other performances include the Royal Albert Hall in London, Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, and The Forum at Mundo Imperial in Acapulco.

    2011 will be the year of Yanni.
