Arca Drops Digital Deluxe Version of 'Xen'
Published Mar 05, 2015Venezuelan producer Arca released his acclaimed debut full-length Xen late last fall, and now the record has been revamped and rereleased in a special digital deluxe edition via Mute.
Officially billed as Xen (????? Edition), the expanded album was released on iTunes today (March 5) and features two new bonus tracks titled "????? A" and "????? B."
The former is actually a compilation of four new tracks ("Empath," "Get Out The Fucking Car," "Snatch," and "Vanity") while the latter simply contains "Dog Crying At Its Owner's Grave."
The new edition of the album also features videos for Xen's title track and "Thievery," both created by Jesse Kanda.
Arca recently helped produce Bjork's Vulnicura and will be heading out on tour with the Icelandic artist as part of her live band this spring. He's also unveiled a handful of his own headlining live dates, though he won't be making any Canadian stops.
