Ken (Very Limited Yellow Vinyl Plus Bonus 7 inch)

Merge 505990.1

Released on October 20, 2017

Indie Exclusive Limited Opaque Yellow Vinyl plus a bonus 7-inch single on black vinyl containing solo acoustic versions of the album tracks “A Light Travels Down the Catwalk” and “Stay Lost.” Package includes lyric insert and download card.

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 great English-language ballads of the last 100 years or so) was “Ken.” I had an epiphany, I was physically struck by this information. In an attempt to hold on to this feeling, I decided to lift the original 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 was thinking about the last few years of the Thatcher era. Those were the years when music first really 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.”
