On October 20, Destroyer returns with ken.
Of his 12th studio album and its enigmatic title, Destroyer’s Dan Bejar offers the following:Sometime last year, I discovered that the original name for “The Wild Ones” (one of the greatEnglish-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was “Ken.” I had an epiphany, I wasphysically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift theoriginal title of that song and use it for my own purposes. It’s unclear to me what that purpose is,or what the connection is. I was not thinking about Suede when making this record. I wasthinking about the last few years of the Thatcher era. Those were the years when music firstreally came at me like a sickness, I had it bad. Maybe “The Wild Ones” speaks to that feeling,probably why Suede made no sense in America. I think “ken” also means “to know.”
ken was produced by Josh Wells of Black Mountain, who has been the drummer in Destroyersince 2012. The album was recorded in its entirety in the jam space/studio space that the groupcalls The Balloon Factory. However, unlike Poison Season, ken was not recorded as a “band”record, though everyone in the band does make an appearance.
