Shortly following the release of his debut full-length on the venerable Mute label earlier this month, Arca has revealed the official video for LP title track “Xen.” “This one is about violent joy washing over the body,” says the Venezuelan producer. “…a celebration of sensuality and of unhinging oneself in the face of struggle.” “Xen” is the latest addition to a growing body of collaborative work between Arca and visual artist Jesse Kanda, who also designed the album’s artwork and created the video for Arca’s “Thievery” single. Kanda is set to join Arca on a series of European live shows later this year, which launch at the ICA in London and finish at Berlin institution Berghain on December 5. Additional dates have been listed below, where the new video for “Xen” can be watched in full.
