Jon Hopkins is to release Immunity, his fourth solo album, on Domino on June 4th (North America) / June 3rd (rest of the world).
A powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focused 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 2011 Mercury-nominated collaboration, Diamond Mine.
Immunity is a confident, dramatic record defined by an acute sense of physicality and place. It feels like the hypnotic accompaniment to a journey of creativity, a trip inside Hopkins’ mind, using analog synthesis alongside manipulations of physical, real-world sounds to make dance music that feels as natural and unforced as possible.
Immunity is the most human electronic album you’ll hear this year.
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 the follow-up to 2009’s Insides, released on Domino.
Immunity will be available on CD, 2xLP and Digital.
