Mia Nihta Zoriki (Greek: Μια νύχτα ζόρικη; English: One tough night) is an album by popular Greek Laïka singer Paschalis Terzis released on November 3, 2008 by Minos EMI. The album is the follow-up to his 2007 platinum album I Diafora and is composed entirely by Giorgos Theofanous. It was certified gold on its first day of release[1] and debuted on the Greek Albums Chart at number two.[2]

Background[edit]

Released on November 3, 2008, the 14 track Mia Nihta Zoriki is the follow-up album to Terzis' successful 2007 release I Diafora.[3] It was composed entirely by Giorgos Theofanous, with lyrics, apart from a few by Giorgos Theofanous, by Thanos Papanikolaou, Kostas Fasoulas, Andreas Neofytidis and poet Manos Eleftherios.[4] The album was released in two case formats: one in a standard jewel case and the other in a larger paperback case, the latter being marked as a "special edition" by some retailers.

Promotion[edit]

Terzis performed his new songs in the first week of the album's release on the Greek The X Factor where composer Theofanous is a judge.[5] He also began performances at club Iera Odos on November 6, 2008, for his sixth winter season there. He sang many songs from his career in addition to his newer tracks, and is accompanied by fellow Greek singer Elena Paparizou.[6][7]
