On last night’s BBC Radio 1 Benji B show, Arca dropped by to debut tracks from his forthcoming second album ‘Mutant’.
With the follow-up to ‘Xen’ due out 20th November (it’s a vicious chart battle between him and Adele, really), he gave first plays to ‘Front Load’, ‘Faggot’, ‘Snakes’ and ‘Gratitude’. Explaining the choice of title for ‘Faggot’, he told Benji B: “I’m proud of being a faggot.”
As well as debuting new tracks, Arca talked about his work on Björk’s ‘Vulnicura’ and his creative partnership with Jesse Kanda.
The biggest and best of the week’s new releases.
It follows the producer’s recent five-album ‘KICK’ series.
A complex calling card from a singular artist.
