Described by Dan Bejar as “maybe the most audacious piece of music Destroyer’s laid to tape,” “Cue Synthesizer” adds a bit of humor to the bandleader’s trademark wordplay. “Cue synthesizer, cue guitar,” he commands over a build-up of instrumentation.

Likewise, the single’s visuals set it further apart from the album’s earlier singles. A hooded crew of warehouse workers go about encasing their environment in plastic wrap. “The idea of the world is no good,” Bejar sings from the security of his car, also coated in the icy blue covering. Frigid and isolating, the coating protects its contents from an equally bleak existence.

Have We Met was released 1/31 on Merge.
