The Venezuelan producer shared the new release, featuring Total Freedom and Mica Levi, alongside an intense music video
Arca has released a new mixtape and shared a video for the song “Sin Rumbo”.
Back in February, the Venezuelan producer revealed that he’d be releasing his new album Reverie later in 2016 – his third full-length in as many years. In a tweet yesterday, he said that the album was still set for release in 2016, but that he’d also be issuing a free release as a thank you to fans for waiting.
Today he shared that release, a mixtape called Entrañas. The mixtape features collaborations with Total Freedom, Massacooraman, and Mica Levi. He also released a video for its song “Sin Rumbo”, a stunning piece of music with a quasi-devotional feel. The song features Arca’s own vocals and lyrics, and its video – directed by regular collaborator Jesse Kanda – shows an extreme closeup of Arca’s bruised face, shot in a single take.
Besides working on his new album, Arca has also been working with Björk once again on her next record, a follow-up to last year’s Vulnicura. Speaking to Julia Davis in AnOther, Björk said that “the last album, we sort of call it ‘hell’ – it was like divorce! So we are doing paradise now. Utopia.”
