Following a sold out, euphoric performance at The Royal Festival Hall, Jon Hopkins announces the release of a 4 track EP, entitled Asleep Versions, on 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 the Mercury-nominated Immunity.
Representing the quieter, more meditative side of the album, these new explorations take its hypnotic, transcendent qualities to a far deeper level. At times almost painfully beautiful, 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.
Jon Hopkins will be curating a night at The Warehouse Project in Manchester on 12th December alongside Jamie XX, and will be performing his biggest show to date at London’s Brixton Academy on 24th April 2015.
