    Jon Hopkins - Singularity (Artist Album) [Domino]




    From Magnetic Mag:

    Jon Hopkins has announced the details for his first album in five years, Singularity. In addition to the new album, he has unveiled the first single from the album titled “Emerald Rush.”The nine-track album will be released on May 4 via Domino Records. It is his first artist album since 2013’s Immunity, though he did mix a beautiful Late Night Tales compilation in 2015.
    According to a press release, Singularity, "flows seamlessly from rugged techno to transcendent choral music, from solo acoustic piano to psychedelic ambient. Its epic musical palette is visceral and emotionally honest: with a destructive opener full of industrial electronics and sonic claustrophobia and a redemptive, pure end on solo piano."
    It is meant to be consumed in one sitting.
    Jon Hopkins teased at the end of February that there would be music coming in 2018 with a stunning preview video. Now he is delivering on that promise. “Emerald Rush” comes with an accompanying animated video as well, which you can view below, though make sure you head to a streaming service or digital portal to pick up the long version.


    Tracklist:

    01 Singularity
    02 Emerald Rush
    03 Neon Pattern Drum
    03 Everything Connected
    05 Feel First Life
    06 C O S M
    07 Echo Dissolve
    08 Luminous Beings
    09 Recovery
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I love how this new track sounds like a sequel of his epic "Collider". I sure hope that was just a video edit though; I'd love for the final version to play on longer.

    Can't wait!!

    His remix of Midnight by Coldplay still is one of the best tracks I've ever heard in its genre. Hope he achieves that standard on this album too. Will take a listen when it's out.

    He must've been listening to Singularity and got inspired by it, @Katadunkass?

    Love the album concept,theme and artwork but i cant get used the glitchyness in the beats and percs of Emerald Rush - it just doesnt flow in my ears for me.

    Listened to it on my commute to work this morning. A little below my initial hopes - it's basically Jon Hopkins doing a techno album (not as much glitch or IDM here). I doubt he'll ever be able to blow me away the same way he did the first time I heard Immunity, but for what it is Singularity is damn good. Very lush, emotive and expansive. 4/5

    Yep, it's awesome. Can't really single out a certain track, but the production is amazing. Will be listened to - I mean the whole album - which speaks of how much I like it.
