Anatropi (Greek: Ανατροπή; English: Overturning) is the debut album of the Greek singer Kostas Martakis, released in Greece on July 20, 2007 by Sony BMG Greece. It includes many hit singles like "Anatropi", "Nai", "Astous Na Lene" and "Oneira Megala". In March 2008, the album was repackaged to include the CD single "Always and Forever" and released as Anatropi: Special Edition. It was also re-released a second time as Anatropi: Deluxe Edition by the end of December 2008 to include the Greek version of "Always and Forever" and four new tracks.

Album background[edit]

After gaining exposure on the talent show "Dream Show" in 2006, Kostas Martakis soon was signed by Sony BMG Greece and also teamed up with manager Elias Psinakis, who was also a judge on "Dream Show" and had previously managed Sakis Rouvas for 15 years. Soon after, Martakis released his first EP titled "Panta Mazi" (Always together) which contained four tracks off the album.

Released only July 20, 2007[1] by Sony BMG Greece, Anatropi was Kostas Martakis debut album, following his debut EP "Panta Mazi". Anatropi contained a number of hits including the title track, as well as "Nai", "Gi`afto Hirokrotiste Tin", and "As' Tous Na Lene".

Following Martakis' participation in the national final to represent Greece in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, the album was re-released as Anatropi: Special Edition on March 20, 2008. The special edition included the gold "Always and Forever" CD-Single as a bonus.[2][3]

Due to Martakis' service in the Hellenic Navy in the second half of 2008, Anatropi was re-released by the end of December 2008 as Anatropi: Deluxe Edition containing 5 new songs instead of an all new album.
