Arca is releasing his debut album in November.
Last week, the experimental musician/producer/beatmaker uploaded a sparse piano piece to Youtube to accompany some tour date announcements. Now, he's spilled the beans on his debut album, titled 'Xen'.
Set for release on Mute Records on November 3rd, 'Xen' follows some incredible EPs for UNO NYC, an incredible mixtape called '&&&&&', and incredible production work for Kanye West's 'Yeezus' and FKA twigs on 'EP2' and 'LP1'. It's all incredible, basically.
Once again, the artwork for 'Xen' comes from longtime visual collaborator Jesse Kanda. A vinyl run – limited to 500 copies and sealed in black PVC – will be available along with a bonus 10" of exclusive material.
You can stream a track from it called Thievery right now.
