Arca will release her third album of 2021 next month.

kick iiii, out on the same day as her other two forthcoming albums KICK ii and KicK iii, features collaborations with the likes of Oliver Coates, No Bra, Shirley Manson and Planningtorock, who features on lead track 'Queer', which you can listen to above.

In a statement about the new album, Arca said: "kick iiii 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, 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."

XL will release kick iiii on December 3, 2021.
