Oceanic is a 1996 album by Greek electronic composer and artist Vangelis. It was released in Europe on October 25, 1996, and in the U.S. on January 1997. A single featuring track "Song of the Seas" was released simultaneously.
Vangelis was personally involved in the sleeve design, as he used to be in the late seventies and early eighties. At the end of the inside liner notes for the CD, there are references to the films Million Dollar Mermaid and Footlight Parade. Presumably these were sources of inspiration for Vangelis. The album proved 'too light' for many old fans who prefer Vangelis' roots with progressive music, but was welcomed by many of the New Age generation of his fans.
Oceanic's music was used in the 1998 documentary "Deep Seas, Deep Secrets" co-produced by The Learning Channel and Discovery Channel, together with music from Vangelis' previous album, Voices.
