Arca has shared details of a second new album for 2021.

'KicK iii' will arrive on December 3 via XL Recordings, the same day as her previously announced LP 'KicK ii'. It features 12 tracks, including the previously released single Incendio and the newly shared Electra Rex, a glitchy, experimental pop song.

It comes paired with a video co-directed by Arca alongside Carlota Guerrero, which was filmed in 2020 in front of Barcelona's Plaça dels Àngels. Arca said:

"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 non-binary 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: it kills both parents and has sex with itself, and chooses to live."

The news comes hot on the heels of two 'KicK ii' cuts, Prada and Rakata, unveiled earlier in November. 'KicK i' was released in June 2020.
