Arca, the Venezuelan producer and Björk/Kanye West/FKA twigs collaborator, has a new album called Mutant coming out later this month. Over the weekend, he shared a video for “Vanity,” a new track that sounds like a trap-rave banger that’s been drowned in honey and tar. Like his recent “EN” clip, the video is a murky, mysterious affair that focuses on Arca himself. It mixes blurry city-at-night imagery with shots of Arca, dressed and posed seductively, in a bed and a swimming pool. Arca co-directed the video with the photographer Daniel Sannwald, his boyfriend, and it’s a whole lot more intimate than anything most artists will ever give us. Check it out below.
Mutant is out 11/20 on Mute.
