Renowned London producer and Brian Eno collaborator Jon Hopkins has been having a breakthrough year with the release of his XLR8R Pick'd Immunity LP, and he continues on that streak today, sharing an eerie, naturalistic video for an alternate version of album cut "Breathe This Air." Directed by Anthony Dickenson, the hyperdetailed visuals reveal two unrelated characters brought together by a lakeside forest—a middle-aged man who accidentally hits a deer with his truck, and a tearful woman who sheds her clothes for a cathartic swim. Hopkins' clipped drum patterns and plaintive piano melodies pair with the drifting vocals of Purity Ring's Megan James to heighten the video's sense of finality.
