Aphex Twin has announced his first album proper in 13 years, to be released on 22 September via Warp. Announcements and hints came via a series of unorthodox channels, including the deep web and a blimp flying over London, which came at the tail end of the crowdfunded release of lost album Caustic Window, a test pressing of which was sold to Minecraft creator Markus Persson. Syro was recorded over a number of years, and Richard D James told Rolling Stone it covers "about a fifth of what I've done in the last 10 years". A series of album playback listening events will also take place at various urban centres around the world, there's a full list of those here.
Syro will be released digitally, on CD and vinyl, and as a deluxe triple vinyl set, with artwork by The Designer's Republic on 22 September. Listen to "minipops 67" below.
