Arca has unveiled a new remix for the title track of award-winning Japanese musician, composer and music producer, Ryuichi Sakamoto's first solo album in 8 years "async." The track will be featured on a forthcoming companion album to Skamaoto's latest effort.
The mesmerizing rework sees the Venezuelan eccentric repeat the phrase "I peel my skin off for you" in Japanese in a soulful and somewhat eerie manner, showing off his vocal skills as he did with the 2017 self-titled effort "Arca."
Along with the previously released Oneohtrix Point Never and Electric Youth remixes for "andata" and Alva Noto's take on "disintegration," the companion album is also set to feature remixes from Cornelius, Jóhann Jóhannsson and Motion Graphics.
