Jon Hopkins Announces Immunity Reworkings Ep
Following a sold out performance at The Royal Festival Hall last Friday, Jon Hopkins has announced the release of a 4 track EP, entitled 'Asleep Versions', available from 10th November 2014.
'Asleep Versions' was recorded at Sundlaugin Studios, near Reykjavik, in February of this year. Intended to be heard as one single 25 minute piece, it is composed of four decelerated, dreamlike re-imaginings of tracks from Hopkins' Mercury-nominated LP 'Immunity'.
The EP contains a new, semi-acoustic re-interpretation of album track 'Form By Firelight', featuring additional vocals from the Braids and Blue Hawaii lead vocalist, Raphaelle Standell, alongside new renditions of the King Creosote collaboration 'Immunity', and tracks 'Breathe This Air' and 'Open Eye Signal'. Watch a trailer for the EP below.
