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.’”

This limited edition LP format is pressed on yellow vinyl, and comes with a bonus 7” featuring acoustic versions of A Light Travels Down the Catwalk and Stay Lost. It’s only available through independent shops such as ourselves.
