Aphex Twin Releases Tracklist And Artwork For New Album, SYRO

After teasing us with an Aphex Twin sigil on a blimp in London last week, it looks like the eccentric producer is finally back, after a 13-year hiatus, with his latest album, Syro. Will this be something closer to the moody atmospherics of his ambient works, or a little more propulsive and “Rubber Johnny” chaotic? We’d be excited for either version of Aphex Twin.

We’ve got a track listing as well as the Syro art work, which looks like an expense report for the actual album. You can see both below this very alarming .gif of Aphex Twin leering through his tinted limousine window.

Do you guys think those are frequencies next to each of the tracks? I feel like he’s doing some kind of Boards of Canada thing here with a bunch of numbers that supposedly unlock a deeper mystery about each track or the album as a whole.

Aphex Twin’s music has been as much about the art/image of Richard D. James as it is about the creative output itself – at least starting around the …I Care Because You Do era of masks, caricatures, creepy creatures, and Chris Cunningham collaborations. Who knows what more than a decade out of the spotlight has wrought on the artist, but I, for one, am ecstatic to have him back.

Syro will be out September 23.

Treat yourself to Aphex Twin’s semi-inscrutable press release below:

Whenever one of the most celebrated and influential electronic fartist, Richard D. James can compete with the music flip to influence built.

Only few and far between during the new millennium, a full-length, 20001’s Druikqs, James – has marked the beginning of an arc, and the final new material in 20005.

    THIS IS LITERATELY WHAT IT SAYS: “Whenever one of the most celebrated and influential electronic fartist, Richard D. James” … wow, nice. Fartist.

    Wonder if this in direct response to the Caustic Window release and its reception?

    Windowlicker is one of the creepiest dance songs ever, and I love playing it to watch people’s brow wrinkle. The video was marvelous.

    I would assume the numbers next to the tracks are the BPM.
