After Richard D. James, a.k.a. Aphex Twin, dropped a handful of cryptic hints about the possibility of a new album, Warp Records confirmed what we were all hoping: there will indeed be a new album from the artist — entitled ‘Syro’ — and it will be released next month.

This will be Aphex Twin’s first album since 2001’s ‘Drukqs’ and will fall into our grubby, eager hands Sept. 23. While fans wait, they can ponder the album’s cover, which looks like an itemized receipt for a what was surely a pretty weird shopping trip.

'Syro' - Album Cover

Within the album cover, fans will find the track listing for ‘Syro’ — the first 12 items on the “receipt.”

In addition to being available on CD and digital formats, ‘Syro’ will be released as a three-disc vinyl set. Beyond the standard triple-LP, Bleep Records is selling 200 copies of a special-edition pressing of the album. While details are scarce, fans will have to enter a lottery and, if one of the 200 winners picked, will spend $400 on a record that is strictly limited “due to the labour-intensive hand-crafted print process.”

In the meantime, Aphex Twin logos continue to pop up all over the world. In fact, we recently stumbled on one while record shopping in Brooklyn.
