Arca has revealed ‘Vanity’, the latest song and accompanying video from his forthcoming album Mutant. Shot in Paris, the ‘Vanity’ video carries on the tradition and aesthetic of Mutant’s photography and videos so far and was again shot by Arca himself, this time with some help from Daniel Sannwald. It’s the third song to be released from the album, following previous tracks ‘Soichiro’ and ‘EN’.
Mutant is Arca’s second full-length album and the follow up to his highly acclaimed debut album Xen. Released on 20 November 2015 on Mute, the album will be available on CD, download and as a double LP, and again features artwork from long-time collaborator and friend Jesse Kanda.
Arca today also announces a rare New York DJ set. He will perform at PILLOWQUEEN: a Circuit Slumber Party with music by Shayne Oliver, Ashland Miles and Alejandro Ghersi hosted by Ian Isisah and special guests which will take place at Output on Thursday 3 December.
