Following a string of incredible summer festival performances, including Pitchfork Music Festival and Osheaga, Jon Hopkins is pleased to announce the release of a 4 track EP, entitled “Asleep Versions,” available November 11th in the US (November 10th in the rest of the world). 

Watch an animated trailer for the EP, designed and directed by Robert Hunter and listen to Form By Firelight feat. Raphaelle Standell below.

In news sure to delight New York-based fans, a one-off headline show has been announced for November 21st, Jon Hopkins will be playing the FIXED 10 Year Anniversary event at Output in Brooklyn. All worldwide live dates are below. 

“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. 

“Asleep Versions” will be available in 12", CD and digitally. Pre-order the 12” and CD from Domino Mart or digitally from iTunes. In addition, there'll be a limited edition double CD package of both Immunity and “Asleep Versions” available on November 10th. Pre-order it now from Domino Mart.
