MRG 599 CD 


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.' ken was produced by JOSH WELLS of Black Mountain, who has been the drummer in Destroyer since 2012. The album was recorded in its entirety in the jam space/studio space that the group calls The Balloon Factory. However, unlike Poison Season, ken was not recorded as a 'band' record. CD in 4-panel matte digipaks with spot gloss varnish and 12-page insert. LP housed in die-cut matte jackets with spot gloss details and 11”x11” inserts. LP includes a download. No Export outside North America.
