Following the recent release of his cover of “Dawn Chorus”, today Jon Hopkins shares the news of his new EP, Piano Versions which is due for digital release on 16th April 2021, with a physical release on 2nd July 2021.
Presented as the sister record to 2014’s Asleep Versions, Piano Versions is a collection of ambient piano cover versions. The songs on the EP, originally by Roger & Brian Eno, Thom Yorke, Luke Abbott and James Yorkston are presented in a completely new context to their initial form. On these versions, Hopkins used his upright piano as the centrepiece of the EP, whilst recording the ambient, environmental elements around it.
