It’s been a very long time coming.
But after 13 years, Richard D. James AKA Aphex Twin has shared some new music with us, entitled ”mini pops 67 (source field mix)’ which you can stream above.
It’s the first track to do the rounds from his forthcoming new album, which is entitled Syro and comes out via Warp on September 22.
I like this new track – yes it sounds like him, and whilst it’s not a mindblower like ‘Windowlicker’ or ‘Come To Daddy,’ anyone who is familiar with his work knows that one track is unlikely ever to be typical of an album.
The album tracklisting, according to Amazon, is as follows:
1. Minipops 67 (120.2) Source Field Mix) (Aka the Manchester Track)
2. XMAS_EVET10 (120) (Thanaton3 Mix)
3. Produk 29 (101)
4. 4 Bit 9d Api+e+6 (126.26)
5. 180db_ (130)
6. CIRCLONT6A (141.98) (Syrobonkus Mix)
7. Fz Pseudotimestretch+e+3 (138.85)
8. CIRCLONT14 (152.97) (Shrymoming Mix)
9. Syro U473t8+e (141.98) (Piezoluminescence Mix)
10. PAPAT4 (155) (Pineal Mix)
11. S950tx16wasr10 (163.97) (Earth Portal Mix)
12. Aisatsana (102)
(I say according to Amazon, because there’s no way most humans are capable of making sense of all of that!)
