If Warp Can Pry It Out Of His Hands, A New Aphex Twin Record Is Coming



Warp Records is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with several big gigs in London, New York, Tokyo and Paris, and have already revealed that Richard James -- aka Aphex Twin -- will be playing a show in the French Capital on May 9. But what about a new record? That's coming too, just don't ask when.

In an exclusive interview, Steve Beckett, founder of Warp told BBC 6, “We’re definitely going to be putting out a new album by him. Hopefully it will be this year, if I can prise [sic] it out of his hands. It’s definitely on its way.”

The eventual follow-up to 2006's Chosen Lords, a compilation of the Analord material, whatever it ends up being, Beckett explained he won't know any sooner than we will. “I don’t know a single note or anything about it,” he explained. “It will be as much of a surprise to me as anyone else."

Beckett went on to say, “Basically I find out what it sounds like when we go into the mastering room and he puts it - well how it used to be, he'll put the DAT player in and there it’ll be - so that’s the first time I’ll hear it." He then got a bit homoerotic, exclaiming, “Then I’ll go onto my knees and thank him and then we’ll put it out.”
