Jon Hopkins has shared some stunning new music as part of a brand new trailer.
The inimitable electronic producer, whose most recent LP ‘Immunity’ was released in 2013, shared the trailer through his social media channels this morning (23rd February).
“I’m so happy to share some brand new music with you,” the accompanying text reads. “There is much more news to come soon, but this is where it begins. If you can, please watch in HD, with full screen and on headphones.”
Known for his impeccable blending of electronica, contemporary classical and techno, the new music teased in this four-minute clip is a typically breathtaking serving of ambient bass textures and melodic soundscapes. The accompanying video, directed by Stephen McNally in association with Blink Industries, is an equally hypnotic affair.
In September 2017, the Mercury nominated producer and composer who has made soundtracks for films like How I Live Now and collaborated with the likes of David Byrne, Brian Eno and King Creosote, tweeted “The record is nearly fucking finished”.
With today’s trailer, and with slots lined up at festivals like Dimensions and Wilderness this summer, we have a feeling it’s about time to get very excited for the return of one of the UK’s most important producers.
