Jon Hopkins Announces New Album
What more can be said about Jon Hopkins? Film Soundtracks, Ivor Novello nominations, working with Brian Eno, Mercury award nominations, cool remixes, Jon has done it all. So that’s why we are delighted to reveal that Jon Hopkins has confirmed the release date of his highly anticpated 4th studio album ‘Immunity’ release date as June 3rd 2013. Promising to be a “powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focussed music” Hopkins has ever made, Immunity is supposedly inspired by the need to achieve a euphoric state through music. Drawing inspiration from the arc of an epic night out, the album peaks with Collider, a huge, apocalyptic, techno monster and then dissolves later with the quiet, soft and fragile descent into Closer. After the success of the awesome Diamond Mine we can’t wait to hear the full album come June.
Here’s a teaser of Jon’s upcoming use of “analog synthesis alongside manipulations of physical, real-world sounds to make dance music that feels as natural and unforced as possible”. June can’t come quickly enough.
