Earlier this week, we learned that Aphex Twin would end his 13-year hiatus with a new LP titled Syro, but other than a usually cryptic track list, Richard D. James didn’t offer up much more information. Thankfully, Warp Records helped fill in the blanks by revealing that Syro would be released on September 23rd. Warp also unveiled the Designer Republic's insane album cover for Syro, which is essentially just an itemized cost breakdown of Aphex Twin's previous promotional obligations, like "The Making of Windowlicker" and "Hotel in Seattle for album playback meeting."
Aphex Twin fans are a passionate bunch, as we learned when a rare, unreleased 1994 LP by James' Caustic Window side project somehow became available for purchase and fans raised over $67,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to buy it. However, the fanbase is going to be clawing at one another after Warp revealed that only 200 limited-edition Syro box sets will be produced "due to the labour-intensive hand-crafted print process." In order to buy a box set, fans must enter a lottery, and then 200 lucky Aphex Twin fans will have the opportunity to drop $400 on this special Syro. For everyone else, the album will also be released on CD, triple-vinyl and digitally.
As evidenced by the absurd Syro cover, James is having a laugh with the whole promotional process, and the album's press release cements that: It's like if someone took the Aphex Twin Wikipedia page, fed it into Google Translator set to Russian, then translated that Russian into Mandarin, and then back into English. One thing we do learn from the press release, however, is that James claims to have "unreleased music under several thousand monikers." Read it for yourself below:
