The new Destroyer album, Poison Season, is out at the end of August and Merge Records has just shared another song from it, "Times Square." With acoustic guitars and prominent sax, it's Dan Bejar at his most Al Stewart, all wistful and dramatic. "You could follow a rose wherever it grows, or you could fall in love with Times Square." The NYC tourist hub isn't very lovable these days if you ask me but if anyone could make it romantic, it's Bejar. Listen below.

Destroyer will be closer to Astor Place when he plays NYC's Webster Hall on October 4 as part of his fall tour with Jennifer Castle. Tickets are still available.
