Ahead of the release of Arca’s upcoming album KiCk i this Friday (June 26), the artist has teamed up for a new song featuring Rosalía called ‘KLK’. Listen to the track, as well as its instrumental version, below.
The two musicians also hanged out on Instagram live, which you can watch below. In a separate post promoting ‘KLK’, Arca compared her use of sub bass on the track to the sound of a furruco. “The furruco is an autochthonous musical instrument that is played via friction of a rod attached to a large drum head. When rubbed it produces a big sub bass pulse that marks the tempo for the whole gaita group, gaita is typical Venezuelan music,” she wrote.
“I played furruco for years in the gaita groups of my school and a music academy I went to and it influenced me a lot, as well as learning cuatro,” she added. “Venezuelan music has always been with me, and I’m so grateful to have studied some of its musical stylings.”
The new single follows previously shared tracks ‘Mequetrefe‘, ‘Nonbinary’, and ‘Time’. In addition to Rosalía, the album also features appearances from Björk, SOPHIE, and Shygirl. Earlier this month, Rosalía teamed up with Travis Scott for the track ‘TKN’.
