Destroyer announces new album Poison Season, world tour

With a mere flick of his wrist, Dan Bejar (a.k.a. Destroyer) can announce a new album called Poison Season, share a track from that album, and post tour dates ALL AT ONCE. Well, he didn’t do it exactly; press people did it for him. But I’m assuming it’s because he flicked his wrist at some point. But then again, maybe he didn’t? Maybe Merge or someone who works there (could it have been Mac or Laura themselves?) flicked their wrist at some point recently and set all of these dominoes into motion? And you know what, now that I think about it, notwithstanding all the people who scooped me out there, I am the one who is doing all three things at once, and I’m not even sure who flicked their wrist and I’m not sure how to even go about figuring it out.

What I’m saying is I have no idea how the music industry works, and yet it is I who is tasked with telling you that Poison Season — Destroyer’s first album since 2011’s Kaputt — is out August 28. Because I take my task very seriously, I will also tell you that, in concurrence with Poison Season, Destroyer will release a limited 12-inch containing a remix of album track “Forces From Above” in addition to “Times Square, Poison Season.” Hmm, what else? Well, he’s going on tour, of course. Not much to say about that I guess. The song he shared, or that I am sharing for him, or that the internet is kindly allowing me to share by continuing to exist and to be structured around the language of HTML of which I understand just enough to embed SoundCloud players, is called “Dream Lover.” You can listen to it below if you would like.

Pre-order the album by itself here or bundled with the 12-inch I so dutifully mentioned in the last paragraph here.
