The Eno collaborator follows-up 2013’s Immunity.
Jon Hopkins is the latest producer to step up for the long-running Late Night Tales compilation series. Due on March 1, the album features Four Tet, Holy Other, Darkstar and more.
“Putting this album together was a unique opportunity for me to present music that I have been listening to for years, free from the constraints of a club setting or from trying to stick to one genre,” he writes.
“I chose tracks not just because they have been important to me but because of how they sit together, putting as much thought into the transitions and overall narrative as I did into the track choices.
“I mixed by key and by texture more than anything else, using original sound design, pivot notes, and often recording new synth or piano parts to link things together in a way that flows as naturally as possible. I hope you enjoy it.”
