Last week a blimp hovered over London that stated “2014”, with the Aphex Twin logo inside the 0. There was also graffiti of the logo in New York City, stenciled in the streets. Now, the story goes even further with a supposed new album reveal.
How this went down was that Aphex Twin shot out a tweet that only contained a URL: http://syro2eznzea2xbpi.onion. These types of domains are supposedly only for those who wish to go into what’s known as the Deep Web. Working through the site, people found a page with text that seemingly announced the title of a new album, SYRO, as well as the titles of 12 new tracks. The numbers to the right of the tracks are being hypothesized as BPM but there’s no word on that just yet.
A new album from Aphex Twin will be the first since 2001’s Druqks.
