Arca - Xen
‘Xen’ is the latest in a line of uncompromising, forward-thinking releases from the 24 year old Venezuelan artist Arca - AKA Alejandro Ghersi - who first started turning heads with his ‘Baron Libre’, ‘Stretch 1’ and ‘Stretch 2’ EPs in 2012, before further wowing with his work on FKA twigs’ ‘EP1’ (and then subsequent work on this year’s ‘LP1’), Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ and his own blistering ‘&&&&&’ mixtape in 2013.
‘Xen’ will be available on CD, LP and download and features stunning artwork from long time Arca visual collaborator Jesse Kanda.
A strictly limited edition vinyl format (150 copies for the UK and Eire) will also be available. This special format will be hand- numbered and sealed in black PVC and will also include a bonus 10” record of unreleased Arca material that won’t be available anywhere else, continuing Arca’s tradition of producing highly sought-after vinyl recordings (the recent vinyl version of his ‘&&&&&’ mixtape sold out within days of going on sale).
