Aphex Twin Is Teasing His New Album on the Deep Web

Aphex Twin Is Teasing His New Album on the Deep Web

It’s been 13 years since Aphex Twin released his last album, Drukqs, and fans have been foaming at the mouth for the next installment of the Richard D. James saga. On Monday morning, Aphex Twin taunted those fans in truly nerdy, fairly tantalizing fashion, by pointing them to the deep web.

In a tweet, Aphex Twin directed fans and followers to a Tor address. The page takes a minute to load—as Tor pages do—but when it does the details of a new Aphex Twin album are all there. On the left is a block of plain text that appears to show the track list of "Syro" along with the beats per minute (BPM) of each song. There are also some surveillance-y lines of text that show things like the amount of time you’ve spent on the site, your IP address, and your location. If you visit a stripped down version on the World Wide Web, you can’t see the album details, but you can still see the surveillance-y stuff.

On the right is the classic Aphex Twin logo that’s been appearing in stencil form all over New York City.

The logo also appeared on a green blimp that was floating above London over the weekend. It was alone on one side, and on the other, it was in place of the "0" in "2014" which is when the album is expected to be released.

Whether or not Aphex Twin decides to go totally renegade and offer it up for download on Tor remains to be seen. But since you’ve been hoping for a new Aphex Twin album since 2001, chances are you’re ready to do whatever you need to to get it. [Thump]
