Artists the caliber of Jon Hopkins are few and far in between. So it’s to the excitement of many that the UK artist has at last returned.

“I’m so happy to share some brand new music with you,” Hopkins shared alongside a new video, boasting new music. “There is much more news to come soon, but this is where it begins. If you can, please watch in HD, with full screen and on headphones.”

Best known for his 2013 full-length, Immunity, Hopkins possesses an unparalleled ability to meld electronica, contemporary classical, and techno into breathtaking ambient soundscapes.

The accompanying video, directed by Stephen McNally in association with Blink Industries, is an equally astounding affair.

In September, the Mercury-nominated producer and composer tweeted “The record is nearly fucking finished,” so here’s to hoping it’ll land sometime land.
