    Dan Bejar is inching closer to the release of his new Destroyer album, Have We Met. Already fans have been offered glimpses with “It Doesn’t Just Happen” and “Crimson Tide”. A third single, “Cue Synthesizer”, has now been unboxed.

    In a statement, Bejar described today’s cut as “maybe the most audacious piece of music Destroyer’s laid to tape.” The indie rock songwriter might just have a point, given the song’s groovy, almost swaggering attitude.

    “Cue Synthesizer” comes paired with a video helmed by David Ehrenreich. In it, a group of hooded warehouse workers go a little crazy with plastic wrap. Bejar finds himself caught up in the workers’ crosshairs, as he ends up being trapped inside a car covered in wrapping.
