In the past couple of years, the Venezuelan-born and New York-based avant-dance producer Arca has done great work with people like Kanye West and FKA twigs, and he’s also done mindbending things like the &&&&& EP on his own. And he’s just announced that he’ll drop the solo album Xen this fall. First single “Thievery” is a queasy banger, an instrumental track that sounds something like AraabMuzik attempting to claw his way out of an alien egg sac. It’s a total monster, and you can hear it below.
Xen is out 11/4 on Mute.
