Jon Hopkins shares “the single most epic video I’ve ever had made”

Jon Hopkins has released the video for the title track of his latest album, Singularity, directed by Academy Films’ Seb Edwards. 

Jon Hopkins says of the video: “This is the single most epic video I’ve ever had made. Seb has been a friend and collaborator for nearly 15 years now, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to work with total freedom on a video for my own music. The power of what he 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.”

Director Seb Edwards adds:  “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. I wanted to capture the feeling of defiance that rises from the initial brutality. The track is ultimately about acceptance and finding peace in nature. I hope I did it justice.”

Hopkins is currently on a sold out tour in North America and will be returning to Europe and UK for a run of sold out dates including two at London’s Brixton Academy in November.
