Aphex Twin returns

New album SYRO on the way.

Music nerds imploded with news that a blimp bearing the Aphex Twin logo appeared over London recently [as an aside: here's a short design history of that logo]. Then logo then appeared in various spots around New York.

And it turns out it wasn’t just the Limerick man amusing himself, but an indication that an Aphex Twin album is on the way. Richard James (or someone on his behalf) later tweeted a link, only accessible through Tor, that contained the first details of his upcoming album, SYRO. The “track listing” is suitably obtuse. SYRO will be Aphex Twin’s first new album 2001′s Drukqs, but it’s not like he’s been quiet, playing his last show in Ireland at Forbidden Fruit in 2011, and DJing at Glastonbury earlier this year.
