Arca has announced her new album KICK ii, out December 3 via XL Recordings, with the new single "Born Yesterday" featuring Sia. Sia is, of course, the megastar pop artist behind hits like "Chandelier," "Cheap Thrills," and "Elastic Heart," while Arca is best known as a groundbreaking electronic producer who has flexed her also-considerable singer-songwriter talents on recent projects.

While both artists operate in very different spheres, they have an appetite for the transgressive that makes their collaboration natural yet no less exciting. "Born Yesterday" is a musical sphinx that's dancing between anthemic electro-pop and tempestuous Björk-style production and reveling in triumph. It keeps its thrills simmering throughout the runtime, promising a drop that never comes and instead leans on a more unique kind of catharsis. Watch the video below.
