Jon Hopkins is back with "Emerald Rush", the lead single from his first album in five years

Jon Hopkins is back with immersive ambient techno tune "Emerald Rush", the first glimpse into the world of new album Singularity.

The producer began teasing his return last month, and last night dropped his first song in a substantial period (five years!) on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show. "Emerald Rush" comes with an animated video by Robert Hunter and Elliot Dear.

Singularity, which follows 2013's Immunity, is apparently "intended to be listened to in one sitting, as a complete body of work". It's described in a press release as "shaped by [Hopkins'] experiences with meditation and trance states" and sees the producer venture into the wilderness to explore the contrasts between nature and civilisation.

Hopkins has also detailed a new run of shows across the UK and Europe, with North American stops coming in the near future - find out the full details.
