Jon Hopkins Announces Asleep Versions EP for 10th November 2014 Watch an animated trailer today

Following his performance at The Royal Festival Hall last Friday, Jon Hopkins has announcded the release of a 4 track EP, entitled Asleep Versions, on  November 10th 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 Immunity. Representing the quieter, more meditative side of the album, these new explorations take its hypnotic, transcendent qualities to a far deeper level. 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.

Asleep Versions  tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Immunity (with King Creosote)
  2. Form By Firelight (With Raphaelle Standell)
  3. Breathe This Air (Asleep Version)
