Aphex Twin has confirmed the release of his new EP, titled ‘Cheetah’.

Following recent hints surrounding the short-player, the electronic artist has now announced the release on Twitter, with a poster that parodies the style of old adverts.

Since the release of his 2014 album ‘Syro’, Aphex Twin has released an EP – ‘Computer Controlled Acoustic Instruments Pt2’ – and the ‘Marchromt30a Edit 2B 96’ single in 2015.

‘Syro’ was nominated for the Mercury Prize and was Richard D James’ first album as Aphex Twin since ‘Drukqs’ in 2001. James said in interviews at the time that he had continued to make music in the intervening 13 years and that more releases would follow soon afterwards.

James told German magazine Groove: “Releasing music gets harder and harder. Every time I go to compile it, I give up after a few hours because it’s just so much stuff and then I get lost. But I’m now in this mode where I’m listening and compiling a lot. I think I’ll be putting out a lot of stuff, hopefully.”
