Jon Hopkins announces new EP, shares reworked version of “Form By Firelight”


A few months back, Jon Hopkins released a glitchy re-interpretation of “We Disappear”, the opening track from his 2013 album Immunity. Now, the London-based producer is planning an entire EP of Immunity reworks. Entitled Asleep Versions, it’s due out November 11th via Domino Records.

According to a press release, the EP features four “decelerated, dreamlike re-imaginings,” including an updated version of “Form by Firelight” featuring Braids own’ Raphaelle Standell and a new version of the King Creosote-aided “Immunity”.

This morning, Hopkins visited Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 Music to debut the serene and hypnotic version of “Form by Firelight”. Listen to the track here beginning at the 1:41:00 mark.

Below, watch the EP’s teaser trailer, which features a few other snippets of music. The tracklist follows.

Asleep Versions EP Tracklist:
01. Immunity (with King Creosote)
02. Form By Firelight (with Raphaelle Standell)
