Aphex Twin gave fans a secret song for Christmas, releasing “tnodvood104” via his user18081971 Soundcloud account. The cinematic track features medieval-like chanting, bedroom synths and a driving electronic beat.

The new song sparks hope of a Aphex Twin (aka Richard D. James) follow-up to his Cheetah EP, which was released last July after a long layoff. Let’s hope the Irish DJ/producer enlists YouTube auteur Ryan Wyer to direct a possible video, after the 12-year old’s excellent work on ‘CIRKLON3 [ Колхозная mix ].
