Dan Bejar has announced a new Destroyer album.

Mostly written in 2020, and recorded during the following spring, 'Labyrinthitis' will arrive through Bella Union on March 25.

Bejar worked on the follow-up to 2020's 'Have We Met' in isolation in Vancouver, sending ideas back and forth to frequent collaborator John Collins on the nearby remote Galiano Island when COVID-19 restrictions didn't allow them to meet in person.

As a preview, check out the dramatic Tintoretto, It's For You, a tense track that's driven by a catchy but ominous sounding bassline. It comes paired with a video directed by David Galloway, which you can watch below alongside the LP's cover art and tracklist.

"I had an idea of writing a couple lines on the idea of 'mystery' and 'goin nowhere,' as they are two of my favourite themes," Bejar said of the song. "That and the Grim Reaper and being pursued by some silent, unnamable thing that constantly lurks one foot to the left of you. Especially as the world's decay becomes increasingly less abstract. Also wanted to write on the romance of terror. The song Tintoretto, It's for You speaks to all these things, oddly enough so does the video…"

Galloway added: "It hopefully presents some loose giallo vibes despite the fact that it clearly isn't a giallo at all. Nobody dies, nothing is explored at length, and it’s ultimately a collection of neighbourhood red herrings. All leads that go nowhere. But that’s the mystery. That’s the mystery about music videos."

Destroyer will support the record with a North American tour this spring.

1. It's In Your Heart Now
2. Suffer
3. June
4. All My Pretty Dresses
5. Tintoretto, It’s For You
