Arca has shared Nonbinary, the first single from her forthcoming album, KiCk i.

Nonbinary comes accompanied by a video featuring Arca, real name Alejandra Ghersi, and it’s a powerful first look into her transformation since her last album, 2017’s Arca.

The music sees Arca repeatedly imploring the listener to “speak for your self-states” amidst an eruption of artillery fire and thundering kicks. “I’m asking for recognition that we have multiple selves without denying that there’s a singular unit,” she told to Paper magazine. “I want to be seen as an ecosystem of minor self-states without being stripped of the dignity of being a whole.”

It follows her recent 60-minute single, @@@@@, and defines a “new era” for her, XL Recordings, the label explains.

KiCk i is Ghersi’s fourth album, and it features guest appearances from Rosalía and Björk. Ghersi announced it to Garage magazine, where she stated: “There was a clear intention [on the album] to allow every self to express itself. Not to decide how much air time each self would get, but to allow for modulation between them in a spontaneous way.”

The label has disclosed no other information. However, you can stream “Nonbinary” in full below.
