Listen to Destroyer’s New Song, ‘Times Square’
Inspired by the first time that Destroyer stepped foot in New York City, the verses and chorus are short, but you can still detect a lot of the emotions they were feeling at the time. Unlike "Dream Lover," this has a smoother and intimate vibe. With a boisterous sax to fill in the spaces, the tune is a love letter to the Big Apple that can bring you back to Bob Dylan's time in Greenwich Village in the 60s.
Frontman Dan Bejar sings in the verse: "Artists and repertoire / Hand in hand through the greater way at dawn / The writing on the wall said, 'Jesus saves' / The writing on the wall mentions / Honey played a game with our waves."
Poison Season is set for release Aug. 28 via Merge in the U.S. and via Dead Oceans in Europe. Following the release of the record, the band will be hitting the road. They first hit up cities in North America in September then take the show to Europe in October and November.
