Jon Hopkins has shared a stunning new video for his single ‘Breathe This Air feat. Purity Ring’, which got released today. The video was directed by Anthony Dickenson, who said the following:
‘I was interested in those times when you think you’re totally alone in your thoughts and something unexpectedly disrupts that, snapping you out. The characters in the film have very different stories but I wanted to create distinct parallels, bringing them closer and closer until they actually intersect in a single defining moment.’
The single version of ‘Breathe This Air’ features Purity Ring’s Megan James, whose vocals transform the track into a vast and shimmering expanse, bringing waves of beautiful melancholy to the original’s dark and dusty techno. ‘Breathe This Air’ is the second single taken from the universally acclaimed Immunity, which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize last week.
