Aphex Twin debuts first track from 'Syro'
Richard D. James—or Aphex Twin, as most listeners will know him—has taken an unconventional route in promoting his first album in 13 years, Syro. Other than hinting at the new project via a blimp in London and a Deep Web link, news about Syro has been slim at best. But on Sept. 4, the first single for the album debuted, giving listeners a taste of what to expect when the album drops on Sept. 23.
Titled “minipops 67 (120.2)(source field mix),” the song continues the artist’s penchant for peculiar track names, and the rest of the album’s tracklist appears to be no different—with names that are even stranger to say aloud.
The song clocks in just shy of five minutes and should serve as a nice primer for the album from Warp Records, which comes out later this month.
