A series of listening events for fans to hear Aphex Twin's new album 'Syro' have been announced.

The events will take place around the world between September 5 and 10, starting in London and taking place in cities including Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and Brussels. The final listening party will happen in Utrecht, Holland, on September 10.

Fans will be able to gain entry to the events by a ticket lottery. Details about the lottery will be made available here from Sunday (August 31).

'Syro' is the follow-up to 2001's 'Drukqs' and will be released on September 22. In a recent interview, the producer – real name Richard James – said that the album wouldn't be a one-off record, asserting that the project has him "kicked into gear".

Prior to the announcement, 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.
