Mysterious 3-D Aphex Twin Logos Appear in London Underground
Is a new album on the way?
Several mysterious 3-D Aphex Twin logos have appeared at London’s Elephant & Castle underground train station.
Naturally, the appearance has sparked rumours that the pioneering British producer, real name Richard D. James, is preparing a new release. Speculation would appear to be well-founded given that Aphex Twin announced his last album—2014’s Syro, his first LP in 13 years—with a flying blimp above London as well as logo stencils in US cities.
Warp, the label behind Aphex Twin, confirmed to the Guardian newspaper that the campaign is official.
Nonetheless, it remains difficult to fathom why these logos have appeared at Elephant & Castle. There are rumours that Aphex Twin resided in a former bank vault in the area following his seminal Come To Daddy EP, but these have since been widely debunked. Their significance also remains unclear, but hold tight for more news.
XLR8R has contacted Warp for comment.
