Destroyer’s New Record, ‘ken,’ is Out Today

Destroyer records warrant rituals. Be it pouring yourself a glass of wine, cracking open a nearby window to let the last of the day’s light in, moving furniture around so you can dance in the living room, lighting candles. Drop the needle once the mood’s right and you’ll unlock a world built by Dan Bejar himself.

Today we’re given another realm to explore. ken, the twelfth album by Destroyer, is out now. Bejar broke down the new record track by track with Pitchfork – we recommend following along with the piece as you listen.

Just a reminder that ken is available on CD, LP, and via digital outlets. A limited deluxe edition of the LP pressed on opaque yellow vinyl includes a bonus 7-inch containing solo acoustic versions of the album tracks “A Light Travels Down the Catwalk” and “Stay Lost.” Both the standard and deluxe versions of the LP include a lyric insert and download card.
