Jon Hopkins has shared a new video for his forthcoming single, “We Disappear” feat. Lulu James, which was directed by Rob Chiu and stars Lulu James.
“We Disappear” feat. Lulu James – a collaborative reworking of the opening track from, Immunity – will be available digitally and on 12″ vinyl via Domino on June 30th, 2014, backed with a remix of “Abandon Window” by Moderat. This is the second collaboration on an Immunity single, following up “Breathe This Air” feat. Purity Ring.
A fan of Hopkins’ work, and known for her beautifully emotive, atmospheric vocals, it seemed right for rising star Lulu James to contribute vocals to “We Disappear.” The pair met when performing at Unknown Festival in Croatia, then soon after put down vocals at Hopkins’ London studio. He then built a new version of the track around James’ contributions, and the result is much sparser, and almost Lynchian – darkly atmospheric, pulsing and retaining the urgency of the original, but adding new depth with James’ stunningly soulful vocal performance.
This summer, Hopkins will return to North America for several headline shows and festival performances including Pitchfork Music Festival and Osheaga. A full list of dates is below. Hopkins has also announced a one-off live audio-visual show at The Royal Festival Hall in London onFriday, September 19. Hopkins will perform new explorations of tracks from Immunity alongside music from his three film scores and other collaborations, and will be joined by long-term collaborator, guitarist and noise-maker Leo Abrahams and experimental string section Geese for a new show backed by visuals from Flat-e and Dan Tombs.
