Arca has shared a brand new 62-minute single known as “@@@@@.” It’s her first official new music since 2017’s self-titled LP. In an announcement about “@@@@@,” which premiered by way of her NTS Radio collaboration DIVA EXPERIMENTAL FM, Arca stated:

“@@@@@” is a transmission broadcasted into this world from a
speculative fictional universe wherein the basically analogue
format of FM pirate radio stays one in all few means to flee
authoritarian surveillance powered by a hostage sentience gestated by
a post-singularity AI. The host of the present, referred to as DIVA
lives throughout a number of our bodies in area in advantage of her
persecution- so as to kill her, one would first have to search out all of
her our bodies. The our bodies that host her carry fetishes for
paralinguistics, breaking the fourth wall and nurturing a mutant religion
in love within the face of worry.

Along with the brand new music, Arca has introduced a North American tour. Check out her schedule beneath and get tickets here. (Pitchfork could earn a fee from purchases made via affiliate hyperlinks on our website.)

Last yr, after performing the four-part stay efficiency cycle Mutant;Faith, Arca debuted an AI soundtrack for the foyer of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In addition, earlier this week, she soundtracked Burberry’s AW20 womenswear trend present in London, joined by the French pianist sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque. Watch that beneath, too.
