In the lead up to his self-titled LP dropping next month on XL Recordings, Arca has released another track, 'Saunter', from the forthcoming project.

At only two minutes long, 'Saunter' is more than just a filler track. It's an intense and haunting production, with cinematic styling that provides insight into the much-hyped release. Full of fragile space and driving synths, the album is set to debut more of Arca's newly-discovered vocals as he carries his sound forward.

'Arca', which is the Venezuelan-born artist's first release on XL, is a 13-track showcase into his distinct atmospheric productions and his emotional experimentation, previously audible on the likes of 'Piels' and 'Reverie' which have also been released online.

The preview follows up from his appearance alongside collaborator Björk last week at Corsica Studios, and a mesmerising music video release for ‘Reverie'.

Have a listen to ‘Saunter’ below and catch Arca with long-time collaborator Jesse Kanda next month at the Roundhouse, London. Tickets are available TicketWeb.
