According to an official press release, the single offers a first look at Arca’s transformation following her 2017 self-titled album. While the past acts as a prologue, her recent 60-minute single, “@@@@@,” is the prelude. “Nonbinary” will then usher in a new era, which Arca will further unveil on KiCk i.
“I’m asking for recognition that we have multiple selves without denying that there’s a singular unit,” Arca previously told Paper Magazine of “Nonbinary.” “I want to be seen as an ecosystem of minor self-states without being stripped of the dignity of being a whole.”
“It gives me the feeling of possibility, to not allow for easy categorization,” she went on to add. “I wouldn’t want to just go pop and I wouldn’t want to go full experimentalist. That’s where a nonbinary mode of thinking feels really fertile. It opens possibilities rather than collapsing things. Allowing for change without resisting it.”
