Jon Hopkins covers Thom Yorke's 'Dawn Chorus'

After delivering his sensational standalone single 'Singing Bowl (Ascension)' earlier this year, Jon Hopkins is back once again to share a very special cover.

The new rendition of Thom Yorke's 'Dawn Chorus' was recorded in one take and sees the producer serenade us with this rich and warming piano-led composition.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “I felt such bliss the first time I heard this piece - it seemed so mysterious and hypnotic, oblique but warm. I thought there was so much beauty in that chord sequence that there was room to explore it on the piano and see what grew from it. One day in early April when everything was particularly quiet and surreal outside, I went into my studio for the first time in weeks and ended up recording the whole thing in one take. I left it very raw and upfront, with just some sub bass and vocal drones in the background. The whole thing was done in a day and was a very cathartic experience.”
