Jon Hopkins Releases Cover of Thom Yorke's “Dawn Chorus”
- British music producer Jon Hopkins has released a piano cover of Thom Yorke's “Dawn Chorus”.
The original version of the song was released by British singer-songwriter Thom Yorke in 2019 from his third studio album “ANIMA”.
“I felt such bliss the first time I heard this piece,” Jon Hopkins shared on social media. “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.”
