Described by Dan Bejar as “maybe the most audacious piece of music Destroyer’s laid to tape,” “Cue Synthesizer” adds a bit of humor to the bandleader’s trademark wordplay. “Cue synthesizer, cue guitar,” he commands over a build-up of instrumentation. Self-aware and much more relaxed, the groover is unlike anything heard on Have We Met so far.

The video joins the previously released “It Just Doesn’t Happen” and “Crimson Tide” from Have We Met. To accompany the forthcoming record, Destroyer hits the road in February for a month-long tour of North America,
