Syro is a studio album by the electronic musician Richard D James, released under the pseudonym Aphex Twin on 19 September 2014 on Warp. It is his sixth studio album as Aphex Twin and his first studio album release under the name in 13 years since Drukqs (2001) and his first album of new material since Analord (2005). The album is also his first official release as Aphex Twin since Chosen Lords (2006), a compilation of tracks from the Analord series.

Recorded over a period of several years in various studios—including James' own studio in rural Scotland—Syro features 12 tracks and incorporates several subgenres of electronic music including techno, glitch, jungle and ambient. The album also features edited vocal tracks provided by James and his family. Syro's cryptic promotional campaign included an announcement made available only on the Deep Web, as well as several press releases in broken English and events in various international cities.

Upon its release Syro received widespread acclaim from music critics and placed in several international charts, as well as earning a nomination for the Choice Music Prize and winning the 2015 Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album. It was nominated for the 2015 Mercury Music Prize.
