Jon Hopkins Announces North American Summer Tour, Shares New Single
Published May 01, 2014Electronic master Jon Hopkins recently got Purity Ring to hop on one of the songs from last year's outstanding Immunity, and now he's unveiled a new vocal collaboration. This time, singer Lulu James has lent her voice to the new single version of the Immunity cut "We Disappear," and Hopkins has additionally mapped out a North American summer tour.
This new version of "We Disappear" can be heard below. Hopkins and James met at a Croatian festival, and they linked up at Hopkins' London studio for this track. A press release describes the results as "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."
Hear it below.
The song is available digitally now. A 12-inch vinyl version will come out on June 30 through Domino. This comes backed with a remix by Moderat.
As for the tour, it will last for most of July and into the beginning of August. In that time, he will play a selection of U.S. gigs and make Canadian appearances in Toronto and Vancouver before eventually ending up at Osheaga in Montreal.
