Jon Hopkins is to release We Disappear feat. Lulu James, a collaborative reworking of the opening track from the Mercury-nominated, Immunity, on 30th June 2014

A fan of Hopkins’ work, and known for her beautifully emotive, atmospheric vocals, it seemed right for rising star, Lulu James, to contribute vocals to We Disappear. The pair met when performing atUnknown Festival in Croatia, then soon after put down vocals at Hopkins’ London studio. He then built a new version of the track around James’ contributions.

Since the release of Immunity, Jon Hopkins has taken his live show around all corners of the globe and played some of his biggest shows to date including a sold out performance at The Forum in London. The album was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and featured in many end-of-year lists including Mixmag, Uncut, Q, NME, The Sunday Times and MOJO who called him ‘a dazzling talent’.
