Earlier this year Jon Hopkins released his fifth studio album ‘Singularity’, and now the British artist is sharing an eerie, enticing new visual for the project’s title track, directed by Seb Edwards.
“This is the single most epic video I’ve ever had made,” said Hopkins via a statement. “The power of what [Seb] has done left me speechless the first time I saw it. He translated the themes of destruction and defiance that I fed into the music into a powerful, violent ballet between male and female and I totally love it.”
While Edwards added, “I've always loved Jon’s work and we've been wanting to collaborate for a while. ‘Singularity’ is such an incredible track, its merciless intensity somehow reflects our troubled times.”
Hopkins' ‘Singularity’ LP follows up a string of critically-acclaimed releases, such as his 2009 record ‘Insides’ and his 2013 offering ‘Immunity’, the latter of which received a Mercury Prize nomination.
