The news comes mere months after his second LP dropped
Venezuelan producer Alejandro Ghersi, aka Arca, has announced via Instagram that he is nearly finished with his new LP and that it’ll be called ‘Reverie’.
Ghersi posted a short clip, accompanied by a comment that read: “I’m almost done with a new album titled ‘Reverie’ and I got a knot in my throat cause I can’t wait to share it with u.”
The announcement comes just three months after the release of his second album, ‘Mutant’, which came out in November 2015. Sam Richards for NME said about it: “Arca is obviously influenced by hip-hop, R&B and dubstep, but the way he distorts and subverts familiar aural cues, never allowing his beats to lock into conventional grooves, is designed to question the aggressive gender pigeonholing of these genres.”
“As disarmingly brilliant ‘Mutant’ can be at times, it’s still deliberately obscure. If Arca can start taking as much from Björk and Kanye as they’ve taken from him, he might be able to start really blowing minds.”

Arca has clearly been working on this new music for some time. In December, only a month after ‘Mutant’s release, he unveiled a new track called ‘Urchin’.
