The French producer will release his next album on Perlon.
As with his recent releases on Karat, Thema and Circus Company, the album will sound a bit more streamlined than Caliente, Ark's 2005 full-length on Perlon, though it still boasts plenty of Ark's bizarre flair, with organic textures, sultry vocals and a generally bonkers vibe. The album will feature a variety of guest appearances, including Dolibox, one of Ark's most frequent collaborators, and vocal artists Lippie and Xanax. In an unexpected twist, Perlon's go-to sleeve artist Double Standard has chosen a close-up of Ark's face for the cover art (upside down on vinyl, right-side up on CD), rather than one of their iconic over-sized text designs.
