Jon Hopkins announces world tour, boasts that he has more mercury than any man, living or dead

From Coldplay to Cold Beats: The Jon Hopkins Story. Oh, don’t mind me, just engaging in my favorite activity: dreaming up fake biography titles for contemporary musicians. Currently, I’m focusing on producer Jon Hopkins, who, as you may have surmised, has worked as a producer for Coldplay and makes frosty electronic compositions in his own work. Now, I only dream up false biography titles, but let’s imagine what would be between those non-existent covers. Of course, it would cover Hopkins’s early years. The beginnings of his music career. His relationship with mentor Brian Eno. His rise to prominence as a solo artist. Somewhere in there, you’d have to mention his 2013 world tour. You’d have to mention it, because it is happening later this year. Look at those tour dates below if you don’t believe it is happening. If you know anything about biographies, you know they cover things that have happened.

Hopkins’s most recent album on Domino, Immunity, was recently nominated for Britain’s 2013 Mercury Prize. The prize honors the musical artist who: a) released a record within the past year, and b) possessed the most mercury. Last year, Alt-J won, because they released An Awesome Wave that year and because they had the most mercury.
