Aphex Twin has revealed his first new song in 13 years.

‘mini pops (source field mix)’ is the first track to be shared from Richard James’ new album, ‘Syro’. The record is due for release via Warp Records on September 22. You can listen to the track below.

James has also spoken out about how a recent fan-led Kickstarter campaign made him want to release new music. Fans started the campaign to buy his recent ‘Caustic Window’ album, leading the musician to realise people were interested in hearing more new records from him.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, he said: “As much as I like to think I don’t really like fans – I mean, it’s not very healthy. You can’t be thinking about keeping other people happy, going in circles. But that was really touching, and really sweet. And I’m getting a bit older. It’s like, “Okay. People out there really, really want stuff off me, so I can’t deny it. Let’s put it out.”

‘Syro’ is the follow-up to 2001’s ‘Drukqs’ and will be released on September 22. In a recent interview, the producer said that the album wouldn’t be a one-off record, asserting that the project has him “kicked into gear”.

Prior to announcing the album, James teased fans with the possibility of a new album by flying a blimp over London bearing the Aphex Twin logo and the digits “2014”. He eventually announced the album on the deep web.
