Ahead of the release of new album ‘Music For Psychedelic Therapy’ next month (12th November), Jon Hopkins has aired a preview, titled ‘Music For Psychedelic Therapy (Excerpt)’ (see what he did there?).
Of the record, he says: “Like everyone, I went through a lot of intensely heavy stuff in the last year. Somehow this music flowed through me in that time, shining like a constant light in that winter. I honestly have no idea where it came from - the whole creation process happened in something of a trance. I remember just going into the studio every day, seeing almost no one, and carrying on late into the night. I felt driven by a force way beyond myself and it was unforgettable.”
He’s also announced two new live dates in Reading and Brighton alongside previously-confirmed shows.
4 Bristol St George’s
6 Cambridge Corn Exchange
21 Reading Concert Hall
22 Brighton The Old Market
23 London Royal Albert Hall
