To celebrate the tenth anniversary of his album ‘Immunity’, Jon Hopkins has announced details of a newly remastered version, which is available to stream now.

The new version will also receive a physical release on 6th October, which will include the first ever coloured vinyl pressing of the record.

Reflecting on the album, Hopkins has said, “’Immunity’ was written between late 2010 and early 2012. I poured everything into it, taking so much care over every element. This record changed my life. I went from playing 500 cap venues to 5000 cap in less than a year. The whole thing was a whirlwind, and has since given me the freedom to follow any creative route that comes to me. Making and releasing it was a very special experience.”

‘Immunity’ was Hopkins’ fourth studio album, originally released in June 2013 via Domino. It was nominated for the Mercury Prize that year.

Hopkins is set to play a show at the Royal Albert Hall on 29th August as part of the BBC Proms. The show will include the world premiere of his first composition for full orchestra and choir, as well as orchestral reinterpretations of tracks from ‘Immunity’.

Hopkins will also be appearing at Parklife Festival in Manchester on 11th June and Field Day in London on 19th August.
