    On March 2nd, Jon Hopkins will become the latest musician to curate Late Night Tales. The long-running mixtape series invites artists to create their own “ultimate ‘late night’ selection,” with each collection featuring an exclusive cover song by the curator. For his contribution, Hopkins chose to rework Yeasayer’s Odd Blood highlight “I Remember”.

    Hopkins strips almost everything out of the song, turning it into a meditative piano number that’s barely recognizable as a Yeasayer track. All of the synth flourishes are removed, replaced by a gentle haze of static and a bit of reverb. Check it out below.

    Hopkins’ Late Night Tales also features tracks from Four Tet, School of Seven Bells, Jónsi & Alex, Darkstar, and Health remixed by Gold Panda. There’s also another song entitled “I Remember”, a spoken word collaboration between Hopkins and poet/Brian Eno collaborator Rick Holland. Find the full tracklist below, preceded by a sampler of the whole mix.
