Jon Hopkins has shared a stunning new video directed by Tom Haines for new single 'Collider' from his Mercury Prize-nominated fourth studio album Immunity. Watch the video and read Haines' thoughts below.

Hopkins finished his biggest headlining North American tour this past weekend with sold out shows at the Independent in San Francisco and Echoplex in Los Angeles. Listen to his recent performance on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic in which he performed new versions of Immunity singles ‘Open Eye Signal,’ ‘Breathe This Air,’ and ‘Collider.’

‘Collider – Remixes,’ featuring remixes from Pangaea, Karenn and Objekt will be available on 12” and digitally on Feb 25, 2014. An Extended Edition of Immunity featuring videos and remixes will be available exclusively through iTunes on December 9, 2013 and is available to pre-order now. Find the tracklisting at the bottom.

Director Tom Haines said the following about the video: “Jon's music has a transportive quality, which can be blissful and expansive, but can also be internal, and more aggressive, and Collider is at this end of the spectrum. We wanted to create an internal journey, which was unflinching, singular and claustrophobic and at the same time liberating. The video is like a voodoo ceremony, where the lead character dances herself into frenzy, and through the dance gains access to a parallel dimension; it's her unfurling thoughts, her dislocated mind, and hints at something more apocalyptic - an end game for her and us.”

1. "We Disappear"
2. "Open Eye Signal"
3. "Breathe This Air"
