Aphex Twin’s new EP, ‘Collapse’, will be released on 14th September via Warp Records.
The announcement comes less than a day after a new video that was set to premiere on Adult Swim was pulled after failing an epilepsy test.
Now, as predicted, the video for the EP’s first single – made by visual artist Weirdcore – has been shared online. The track, ‘T69 Collapse’, was temporarily uploaded to YouTube last night before being taken down on copyright grounds. Check out the track/video in all its hectic glory below along with the EP artwork and tracklist.
All of this comes little over a week after the appearance of Aphex Twin’s logo in London’s Elephant & Castle tube station last weekend. As speculation grew, more and more logos appeared in locations around the world including Turin, Manhattan and Los Angeles. Over the weekend, Warp Records shared a distorted press release on twitter which added the mild hysteria in the lead up to the official announcement this afternoon (7th August).
The legendary producer’s mythology was recently explored by The Quietus’ John Doran in a BBC Radio 4 documentary called ‘The Cult of Aphex Twin’. Early this year, the IDM game changer announced his first Berlin show in 15 years. He will play Funkhaus on Thursday 1st November.
