New Arca Singles To Be Released As Limited Edition Vinyl Wrapped In Fishnet

Electronica’s golden child is releasing his new tracks in an unconventional way

by Eric Shorey

The electronica scene has found its new darling in Arca, the openly queer 26-year-old Venezuelan artist who has already worked with legends like Björk, FKA twigs, and Kanye West. After recently dropping a few new singles and a haunting video, the experimental music world's new wunderkind has announced a special version of his latest tracks.

According to FACT, Arca's newest singles will be released through XL Recordings as the Reverie/Saunter 12" and sold as a special, limited edition vinyl version. In a numbered run of only 220, each album will be wrapped in "a hot pink disco bag" and hand-stitched fishnet tights. 

But if you're the kind of collector who salivates over sexy novelty packaging, we've got some bad news for you: Reverie/Saunter is already sold out. Luckily, the two singles will be officially released alongside the artist's third studio album on April 7. The upcoming full-length LP will be self-titled and will feature 11 other brand-new tracks. 

It was only yesterday that Björk also announced that Arca would be joining her at Mexico's Ceremonia Festival, where Arca will debut a reinterpretation of the Icelandic treasure's classic song "Isobel":
