Arca Shares New 62-Minute Song “@@@@@”: Listen


Arca has shared a new 62-minute single called “@@@@@.” It’s her first official new music since 2017’s self-titled LP. In a statement about “@@@@@,” which premiered via her NTS Radio collaboration DIVA EXPERIMENTAL FM, Arca said:

“@@@@@” is a transmission broadcasted into this world from a
speculative fictional universe in which the fundamentally analogue
format of FM pirate radio remains one of few means to escape
authoritarian surveillance powered by a hostage sentience gestated by
a post-singularity AI. The host of the show, known as DIVA
lives across multiple bodies in space in virtue of her
persecution- in order to kill her, one would first have to find all of
her bodies. The bodies that host her carry fetishes for
paralinguistics, breaking the fourth wall and nurturing a mutant faith
in love in the face of fear.

Along with the new music, Arca has announced a North American tour. Check out her schedule below and get tickets here. (Pitchfork may earn a commission from purchases made through affiliate links on our site.)

Last year, after performing the four-part live performance cycle Mutant;Faith, Arca debuted an AI soundtrack for the lobby of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. In addition, earlier this week, she soundtracked Burberry’s AW20 womenswear fashion show in London, joined by the French pianist sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque. Watch that below, too.
