Arca - Xen
‰Û÷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 ‰Û÷Baron Libre‰۪, ‰Û÷Stretch 1‰۪ and ‰Û÷Stretch 2‰۪ EPs in 2012, before further wowing with his work on FKA twigs‰۪ ‰Û÷EP1‰۪ (and then subsequent work on this year‰۪s ‰Û÷LP1‰۪), Kanye West‰۪s ‰Û÷Yeezus‰۪ and his own blistering ‰Û÷&&&&&‰۪ mixtape in 2013.
‰Û÷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 ‰Û÷&&&&&‰۪ mixtape sold out within days of going on sale).
