As you may knowJon Hopkins is the next producer to compile the long-running Late Night Tales series. Due on March 1, τhe album features Four Tet, Holy Other, Darkstar and more. Exclusive to this release, Jon Hopkins provides a startlingly vulnerable new piano version of Yeasayer’s ‘I Remember’, which you can now stream below.

The original is a beautifully sad yet upbeat breakup song, strident and bright with synth lines cascading around a heartfelt vocal. I wanted to make it sound far more broken and fragile, so I re-played it on the piano, pitched it down, then mangled it quite heavily so it came out sort of wobbly and knackered sounding. I wanted to leave it quite bare, just letting that amazing melody lead the way,” he says. Pre-order here.
