After a number of mysterious teaser videos alongside visual collaborator Jesse Kanda, Venezuelan experimental producer Arca has today announced details of his highly-awaited debut album, Xen, to be released via Daniel Miller's Mute label. The first track to be revealed from the album, 'Thievery', can be streamed above.

Xen will be available on LP, CD and download accompanied by visually striking artwork from Kanda. A limited edition vinyl format will also be available. Limited to 500 copies, it will be hand-numbered and also include a bonus 10” of exclusive material. His debut album follows 2012’s acclaimed Stretch 1 and Stretch 2 EPs, his &&&&& mixtape of last year as well as his production work on FKA twigs' EP2 and Kanye West's Yeezus. UK and European shows, his first since November of last year, are due to be announced later this year. Xen is set for release on November 3.
