You can now listen to and watch the video for the first song released from the record, "CIRKLON3 [ Kolkhoznaya mix ]."
Pitchfork reports about the first Aphex Twin video in 17 years, "it's directed by someone who wasn't even born back then: Ryan Wyer, a 12-year-old from Dublin. (Aphex discovered Wyer through his YouTube channel.) The video stars Wyer, his friends, and his family."
James last released Orphaned Deejay Selek 2006–08 in August of 2015 under another of his monikers AFX. His last release under the name Aphex Twin was the Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments pt2 EP, which was released in January 2015. His last full length album, Syro, dropped back in 2014.
