Following the announcement of the second record from the KicK-series, as well as the sharing of singles "Prada/Rakata", Arca has announced "KicK iii", along with a video for their new song "Electra Rex". The new LP is due out December 3 via XL, just like the previously announced KICK ii.
Of the new single, Arca said in a statement: "For me KicK iii is the most incendiary entry in the kick universe. The album is a portal directly into the more manic, violently euphoric and aggressively psychedelic sound palettes in the series. Electra Rex is a new archetype I propose in reference to commonly understood ideas of Freud regarding the oedipal complex—Oedipus Rex kills the father and unknowingly making love to the mother. Electra complex posits the binary opposite: killing the mother and unknowingly making love to the father. And so I am the first to propose a nonbinary psychosexual narrative to avoid falling into the same generational tragic blind spots. Electra Rex, a merging of both names, an integration of both Oedipus Rex and Electra: Electra Rex it kills both parents and has sex with itself, and chooses to live".
"Incendio", a track they previously shared in September, is included in the tracklist.
