Jon Hopkins collaborates with Kelly Lee Owens on new single 'Luminous Spaces'

Following on from the release of his incredible 2018 album 'Singularity', producer Jon Hopkins has now returned with a wonderful collaboration with singer Kelly Lee Owens.

Originally intended to be a remix of his previously unveiled cut 'Luminous Beings', 'Luminous Spaces' quickly grew into a whole new release of its own, with Owens' warm and wistful vocals layered in-between Hopkins' own diverse and atmospheric composition.

Speaking about their new offering, Jon Hopkins said, "This project started as something very different from what you’re hearing now - I wanted Kelly to do a straight remix of Luminous Beings. I sent her the parts, but what she sent back just felt like something totally new, and had the potential to be so much more than a remix. She’d recorded these beautiful, uplifting vocal lines and had come up with joyous new riffs that recalled for me the best bits of the 90s trance/euphoria that I had grown up loving. I got a beautiful sense of nostalgia and a true heart-lifting joy the first time I heard it, and it was so painless to take it from there to a finished piece - related and born out of Luminous Beings but very much its own thing."

While Kelly Lee Owens added, "‘Luminous Spaces’ initially began as a remix I did for Jon, which I also wrote vocals on top of. I sent the whole track to Jon for feedback and this lead to the start of a more collaborative effort, with him adding extra sound design/ production, and a new intro and outro, which I loved! The exchanging of ideas back and forth made it an extra special process for us and is why he decided to upgrade it to a full and proper collaboration. Our worlds truly colliding!"

'Luminous Spaces' is available to stream and download now, with a 12" release arriving on the 24th January through Domino Recordings. Have a listen in the player below.
