After one of the most critically acclaimed electronic albums of the decade Immunity, the UK based pianist, producer & DJ Jon Hopkins is back with a new single and music video “Emerald Rush” from his much-awaited album Singularity. After working with some of the biggest names like Brian Eno, Coldplay, Imogen Heap and King Creosote over the years, Hopkins released his first album Insides in 2009 followed by Immunity in 2013.
Singularity will be Jon Hopkins first studio album release in four years after his recordings of stripped-down versions of select songs in Immunity released as ‘Asleep Versions’. The video for “Emerald Rush” directed by Robert Hunter & Elliot Dear is an extravagant animation that builds around ideas of out of body experiences and psychedelic hallucinations. Running behind the video is a quintessential Jon Hopkins track, pulsating and punishing yet bordered by serene melodies.
Hopkins kicks off the European album tour in March with Singularity expected to hit stores by May 4th on Dominos Records.
