Arca has signed to XL Recordings for the release of his third album which comes adorned with evocative artwork from frequent collaborator Jesse Kanda. The 13-track, self-titled set follows-up 2015's Mutant and is a violently personal outing for the Venezuela-born, London-based artist. Speaking on the LP he said: "Here's my voice and all my guts: feel free to judge it. It's like a bullfight: you're watching emotional violence for pleasure. So this is a character who, almost as a mockery of the transaction, goes uncomfortably deep, into self-mutilation. ‘You want gore? Here's gore'".
