Jon Hopkins has shared the video for the title track off his latest album, Singularitydirected by Academy Films’ Seb Edwards.

We're told that the video is the "visual pinnacle of this project," and a "continuation and deepening of all the themes that pervade Hopkins’ work." 

Hopkins says of the video: “This is the single most epic video I’ve ever had made. Seb has been a friend and collaborator for nearly 15 years now, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to work with total freedom on a video for my own music. The power of what he has done left me speechless the first time I saw it. He translated the themes of destruction and defiance that I fed into the music into a powerful, violent ballet between male and female and I totally love it.”

“I've always loved Jon’s work and we've been wanting to collaborate for a while,” comments Edwards.“‘Singularity’ is such an incredible track, its merciless intensity somehow reflects our troubled times. I wanted to capture the feeling of defiance that rises from the initial brutality. The track is ultimately about acceptance and finding peace in nature. I hope I did it justice.”
