Praise for Jon Hopkins’ Immunity:
‘Album Of The Week’ The Sunday Times
‘A remarkably visceral, sensual, confident electronic record that stays absorbing from beginning to end’ 8.4 Pitchfork

Jon Hopkins is to release Immunity, his fourth solo album, on June 3rd.
A powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focussed music Hopkins has ever made, Immunity is about achieving euphoric states through music. Inspired by the arc of an epic night out, the album peaks with Collider, a huge, apocalyptic, techno monster and dissolves with the quiet, heartbreakingly beautiful closer, Immunity, a track featuring vocals from King Creosote which could sit comfortably alongside the gems of their Mercury-nominated collaboration, Diamond Mine.
Jon Hopkins will be performing a headline album launch show at London’s Village Underground on 12th June. You can purchase tickets HERE.
Jon Hopkins is also an expert producer, Ivor Novello-nominated composer of film scores, long-term collaborator of Brian Eno and Coldplay, and remixer of artists as diverse as David Lynch, Four Tet, Wild Beasts, Nosaj Thing, and Purity Ring. Immunity is Jon’s first album on Domino, following the release of Insides on Domino imprint Double Six in 2009.
