Destroyer – “Times Square”

Dan Bejar’s roguish, beloved Destroyer project returns later this month with the vaguely glam-rockish new concept album Poison Season, and we’ve already heard the early songs “Dream Lover” and “Girl In A Sling,” and now he’s shared the starry-eyed “Times Square.” There’s a ton of Bowie in Bejar’s delivery on this song, an ode to losing yourself in city life. But it’s impossible to imagine anyone but Bejar coming up with the song’s combination of wheedling triumph-rock guitars and smoothed-out cocktail-jazz horns. This is a singular song from a singular artist, and you can hear it below.

Poison Season is out 8/28 via Merge/Dead Oceans.
