On Aug. 28, Dan Bejar aka Destroyer will release his new album, Poison Season via Merge. Bejar has already released some outstanding pop gems from the album, including the E Street Band-style “Dream Lover,” and the Bowie-esque “Times Square.” Both tracks showcase Bejar’s knack for sophisticated art-pop, as well as a penchant for delving into some classic rock ‘n’ roll sounds when it suits the song. And if you liked those songs, then it’s your lucky day: Destroyer’s Poison Season is now streaming in full via NPR First Listen.
