Destroyer announces “My Mystery” 12-inch

Destroyer announces “My Mystery” 12-inch and shares video of remix by DJ

After the release of their album Poison Season Destroyer hit the road for a marathon tour around North America and Europe. Recorded in the same sessions as Poison Season, the song “My Mystery” never made the final cut. On May 6, Merge records will release “My Mystery” b/w “My Mystery (DJ remix)” digitally and on limited-edition vinyl.

Says Bejar: We recorded a song called “My Mystery” a year and a half ago. Kind of a light number, vaguely danceable. Wistful, looking back not unfondly on time spent and dull misadventures had within the dead-as-a-doornail music industry. And the feeling of where it leaves you, like a rat in the middle of the ocean, though not as harsh as that; as if rats could swim an ocean’s length.

Then one day DJ called me up and said, “You got any shit for me?”…

Shot in Mexico City, by Nicloas Bragg, the director says: “‘An ideal city must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery…’ —Luis Barragan. Night falls on CDMX and Destroyer dreams of chasing architects along the oval horse track surrounding Parque Mexico. Old dogs, old men and old Bejar stray into the mesh of fountains, facades and blood orange flumes. My Mystery captures our last hours in Mexico City. Taco stands and mezcal bars point the way—all while people keep death in their wine-sloshed eyes.”
