Arca has officially announced the details of her new album KiCk i, out on June 26. As previously reported, the album features Björk and Rosalía, but Shygirl and SOPHIE will also collaborate on it. It’s the first time that guest artists have featured on an Arca album.
Following recent single “Nonbinary”, Arca has also shared a new song, “Time”, which was first debuted at the Mutant;Faith shows at New York City’ The Shed last year. The track’s new video was conceptualised by Arca, Carlos Sáez, and MANSON, who directed the video in front of a live audience at The Shed and on the streets of NYC.
A press release says that KiCk i is “a celebration not only of the joy Arca’s been able to find in her life, but the sometimes arduous journey it took for her to find it. Her struggles to reconcile her Venezuelan heritage and her trans Latinx identity emerge as reggaetón and pop en Español.”
“I don't want to be tied to one genre,” Arca says in the press release. “I don't want to be labeled as one thing.”
