Originally released in 2009 Insides is Jon’s third solo album and will be made
available from the 18th December 2020 on the Just Music label, following on
from his first two Just Music albums, Opalescent and Contact Note. It paved the
way for both Immunity (his hypnotic breakthrough solo album) and Diamond
Mine (his collaboration with King Creosote) which attracted Mercury nominations
and for his recently released fifth solo artist album, Singularity.

The epic Light Through The Veins from Insides, which bookends Coldplay’s
Viva La Vida album, is always a crowd favourite and is played by Jon as one of
the closing tracks at almost all of his venue and festival shows. Small Memory,
also from Insides has been streamed almost 57 million times on Spotify alone
where Jon has 355, 462 followers and nearly 2 million monthly listeners.
Cited by The New Yorker as “One of the most celebrated electronic musicians
of his generation”, electronic artist, producer and composer Jon Hopkins has
forged a reputation for music that marries the dance floor to the devotional,
and for live performances that are visceral, generous and charged with a rapt,
sensuous beauty.

Jon has remixed artists as diverse as Flume, David Lynch, Moderat, Disclosure,
Four Tet, Wild Beasts and Purity Ring. Other projects include collaborations
with Natasha Khan of Bat For Lashes and Bonobo, as well as productions for
London Grammar and Coldplay. His film credits include his Ivor Novello nominated
score for the indie sci-fi classic Monsters, The Lovely Bones (scored with
Brian Eno and Leo Abrahams), How I Live Now, Uwantme2killhim? and Rob and
Vanentyna in Scotland. He also scored the National Theatre Live production of
Hamlet and his work has appeared in many films and adverts.
