Jon Hopkins has shared a stunning new video for his single ‘Breathe This Air feat. Purity Ring,' directed by Anthony Dickenson, who said the following: 

I was interested in those times when you think you're totally alone in your thoughts and something unexpectedly disrupts that, snapping you out. The characters in the film have very different stories but I wanted to create distinct parallels, bringing them closer and closer until they actually intersect in a single defining moment.’ 

The single version of ‘Breathe This Air’ features Purity Ring’s Megan James, whose vocals transform the track into a vast and shimmering expanse, bringing waves of beautiful melancholy to the original's dark and dusty techno. ‘Breathe This Air’ is the second single taken from the recently released and Mercury Prize-nominated Immunity.

Hopkins recently announced a co-headlining North American headlining tour this November. See the full list of dates here.
