Destroyer – “Dream Lover”

It’s been four years since the release of Destroyer’s magnificent Kaputt, which is quite possibly the best album of his long career. Since the release of 2013’s Five Spanish Songs covers EP, Dan Bejar has kept relatively quiet, but he’s back today with a new single and the announcement of a new record. Poison Season is out on 8/28, and “Dream Lover” is the lead single. Celebratory horns ring in his return, while Bejar’s voice keeps things grounded with his trademark wit: “Aw, shit, here comes the sun.” Check out the new track and some details about the new album below.

01 “Times Square, Poison Season”
