Arca is mad. Arca has announced YET ANOTHER album that will be released on December 3, titled kick iiii. This will be the fourth and final album in the KICK series, with the first being released in June 2020. The next three, KICK ii, KicK iii and now kick iiii have been announced individually and all of them will be released in two weeks.
“kick 4 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," explains Arca. “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”
Maybe Arca really wants to get out of her record deal by fulfilling album commitments or she wants to move on to a new music series, but damn three full albums in one day is a lot.
