Jon Hopkins has announced that he'll be releasing his new album Immunity on June 3 via Domino - have a watch of the album trailer below:

It's his fourth solo LP, and follows up his work on the soundtrack for sci-fi thriller Monsters and his collaborations with King Creosote, including the 2011 Mercury Prize-nominated Diamond Mine LP.

The text accompanying the announcement calls it "[a] powerful, multi-faceted beast, packed with the most aggressively dancefloor-focussed music Hopkins has ever made, Immunity is about achieving euphoric states through music. It's a confident, dramatic record defined by an acute sense of physicality and place using analog synthesis alongside manipulations of physical, real-world sounds to make dance music that feels as natural and unforced as possible."

Hopkins will be launching the album with a show at Village Underground on June 12; for more details and tickets head here.
