Destroyer Announces New "My Mystery" 12-inch

Destroyer Announces New "My Mystery" 12-inch
Destroyer's Dan Bejar recently treated his Poison Season single "Forces from Above" to a remix from New Pornographers member John Collins (working under the simply wonderful moniker DJ [email protected]). Now, the pair will team up again for a new 12-inch.

"My Mystery" is an outtake from Poison Season and will soon be treated to a standalone 12-inch. The record has the original version on its A-side, complete with a new remix from DJ [email protected] on the flip.

Of the track, Bejar offered the following statement:


We recorded a song called "My Mystery" a year and a half ago. Kind of a light number, vaguely danceable. Wistful, looking back not unfondly on time spent and dull misadventures had within the dead-as-a-doornail music industry. And the feeling of where it leaves you, like a rat in the middle of the ocean, though not as harsh as that; as if rats could swim an ocean's length.

Then one day DJ [email protected] called me up and said, "You got any shit for me?"…


The record will arrive on May 6 via Merge. Until then, you can enjoy a music video for DJ [email protected]'s remix below. Destroyer also has a hefty batch of tour dates coming up, all of which are available below.
