Jon Hopkins covers Thom Yorke’s Daybreak Refrain: Hear
Jon Hopkins has released a piano cover of Thom Yorke’s ANIMA track “Dawn Chorus”. Check it out below.
“I felt so happy hearing this piece for the first time,” Hopkins wrote in a press release. “It seemed so mysterious and hypnotic, weird but warm. I thought this chord sequence was so beautiful that there was room to explore it on the piano and see what grew out of it. One day in early April, when everything was especially quiet and surreal outside, I went into my studio for the first time in weeks and recorded it all in one shot. I left it very raw and open, with just a few sub-bass and vocal drones in the background. The whole thing was done in one day and was a very cathartic experience. “
