I Destroyer hanno annunciato l’uscita del nuovo album “ken“, che sarà disponibile dal prossimo 20 ottobre su etichetta Merge. Il nuovo lavoro del progetto dell’artista canadese Dan Bejar arriva a 2 anni di distanza dal precedente “Poison Season” ed è anticipato dal singolo Sky’s Grey che potete ascoltare nel lyric video che trovate di seguito.
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.
