Arca shared on social media in English and Spanish, “kick has been blessed by none other than sia 🔐 on Born Yesterday 💖 Siac you really went off and tore it on this one. thank you from the heart <3 everyone get in we're getting emotional on this one 💟 / kick ha sido bendecida por nada más y nada menos q sia 🔐 para Born Yesterday 💖 Sia de verdad que te la comiste severamente en este temazo. gracias de todo corazón <3 bebèses agarranse duro q vamos a ponernos emotivas con esta 😌🫀 & thank you also sia for allowing me to lip sync for my life and letting me channel the vocal for the video, on set the tears were real🥺 / y gracias sia tb por permitirme hacer el lip sync y canalizar la voz en el vídeo, durante el rodaje las lágrimas fueron verdaderas 🥺”
- “The second one, KICK ii, is heavy on backbeats, vocal manipulation, mania, and craziness,” Arca told Pitchfork about the project. “There's an unmastered version of KICK ii, but I'd like to give myself a week or two having KiCk i out, to see how that one is understood, and then I can take that opportunity to clarify or complicate whatever parts of the first Kick are getting a response. Just to keep a conversation between the audience and myself. KICK iii is a little bit more introverted than KiCk i. KICK iiii is piano only, no vocals.”
