Update: new album is on the cards
Aphex Twin 'fold face'

Look to the skies...

Across the weekend, a blimp was flown above London bearing the Aphex Twin moniker, while in New York stencils began appearing outside important musical landmarks.

Clearly, something was about to happen. Now a website has launched, featuring scrambled code and what looks like the blanked out inventory for a new album. At the bottom? A distorted photograph of the producer's face. 

Of course, this could all be a hoax but - given Richard D James' reputation for tomfoolery - it's probably a bit too sweet to be a coincidence.

Check out the website HERE.

As Pitchfork point out, Aphex Twin tweeted a link to a similar site earlier today, which is only viewable by users of the Tor browser. Situated in the so-called Deep Web, it contains an album title 'SYRO' and a full tracklisting.
