Jon Hopkins Releases 'Music For Psychedelic Therapy (Excerpt)'
15 October 2021
Next month Jon Hopkins will release his extraordinary new album 'Music For Psychedelic Therapy', out November 12th (digitally/CD) and February 11th (LP) via Domino.
c This is what it’s all about for me. Everything on the record is so intrinsically linked that rather than extract one track to release next, I made this stand-alone excerpt, which is drawn from two big moments of the second half – “Love Flows Over Us In Prismatic Waves”, and “'Deep In The Glowing Heart””. The accompanying visualizer was created by Hopkins’ longtime collaborator, Stephen McNally, who Hopkins describes as "uniquely able to turn the images I have in my head into things everyone can see.”
'Music for Psychedelic Therapy' is Hopkins first full-length since sister albums, Singularity (2018) and Immunity (2013). For this collection, Hopkins wanted to make something that faced the opposite direction, something egoless and introspective, made with total, raw honesty. The result is “an album with no beats, not one drum sound, something that is closer to a classical symphony than a dance / electronica record. Something that is more like having an experience than listening to a piece of music. It is not ambient, classical or drone but has elements of all three. . . it’s a place as much as it is a sound. It works for the sober mind, but takes on a new dimension entirely when brought into a psychedelic ceremony,” adds Hopkins.
“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.
