Destroyer unveils soothing new single "Cue Synthesizer"

08 January 2020, 16:31 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Destroyer is back with "Cue Synthesizer" the latest single to be shared from his forthcoming album Have We Met.

"Cue Synthesizer" lands after last year's "It Just Doesn't Happen" and "Crimson Tide" singles.

Dan Bejar, aka Destroyer, describes the new offering as "maybe the most audacious piece of music Destroyer’s laid to tape."

Have We Met is Bejar's 13th studio album, and first Destroyer album since 2017's ken album.

Bejar worked with John Collins on the record, who was tasked with the role of layering synth and rhythm sections. Speaking about the recording process, Bejar says, "The record could have gone on and on, and the mixes kept evolving up until about a day before we sent them off to be mastered, which was also 48 hours before John and his wife went to the birthing centre, where their first child was born; our true deadline!"

"Cue Synthesizer" is out now. Destroyer's Have We Met album lands 31 January via Dead Oceans. He plays London's Village Underground on 5 May. Find out more.
