Jon Hopkins released his great LP Immunity last year, but apparently he doesn't consider it quite finished - he's just announced Asleep Versions, a short EP of reimagined and remixed Immunity tracks that'll see them more dreamlike and slow. You can check out "Form by Firelight," which features Braids singer Raphaelle Standell lending edited, soaring, ambient vocals against a lovely, minimal backdrop, and you can watch a trailer for the complete EP, which includes a few snippets of new music and some great animation from Robert Hunter. Watch that below then navigate over to BBC Radio 6 to hear "Form by Firelight," about 1:41:00 into Lauren Laverne's show. She calls it a "headphones listen" for the day, and she's damn right. Check it out - Asleep Versions is out November 11th.
