Arca has announced a new album titled kick iiii. Like her other upcoming full-lengths KICK ii and KicK iii, it will arrive on December 3 via XL. Arca is previewing the record with the new track “Queer,” featuring Planningtorock, which you can find below.

kick iiii is the fourth and final installment in Arca’s ongoing anthology, according to a press release. The album spans 11 tracks in total and includes collaborations with Oliver Coates, No Bra, and Shirley Manson, in addition to Planningtorock.

Of the new album, Arca said in a statement:

kick iiii is an entry of sensual charge in the cycle; my own faith made into song, a posthuman celestial sparkle, psychosexual pulsewidth modulation, queering the void, abyss alchemically transmuted into a deconstruction of what is beautiful, it is a healing spell, recognition of the alien inside, a bursting apart of old skin, fresh new sinew rippling outward from a beating core, the first prenatal kick—proof that there is a sentience with a will beyond its creators’ control expressing itself from within the womb.

Last week, Arca announced KicK iii, which features the track “Incendio.” KICK ii, which she announced in October, includes the songs “Prada” and “Rakata.” Arca released KiCk i in June 2020.
