Jon Hopkins Shares New Song 'Scene Suspended'
Jon Hopkins has released his first new material of 2020 with single "Scene Suspended."

The song, which he recently debuted live at the Sydney Opera House, can be heard below, and is the result of Hopkins moving away from the writing process of 2018's Singularity.

"The main tracks on Singularity were built of hundreds of layers and processes, and took nearly two years to build," Hopkins explained in a statement. "Following on from this I've been craving a return to simplicity, to acoustic sound, and to the instrument I grew up playing. In order to express similar themes but to use as little as possible to achieve this the only sound sources on 'Scene Suspended' are piano and violin."

Hopkins also shared a new song with Kelly Lee Owens last December.
