Arca’s previous release Xen was reached no. 8 on the US Billboard Dance/Electronic albums chart. Xen was introspective, where as Mutant is outwardly emboldened. The new album is dedicated to and coloured by the important people in Arca’s life, Mutant illustrates the continuing mutations catalysed by loved ones: friends, family and acquaintances.
Arca has previously worked with some high profile acts. Back in 2013 he lent additional production on four songs from Kanye’s sixth studio album Yeezus. He also served as one of the three production consultants along with Hudson Mohawke and Young Chop. Arca also co-produced Björk’s ninth studio album Vulnicura.
