Destroyer returns with video for new single ‘Tintoretto, It’s For You,’ announces new album ‘Labyrinthitis’

Destroyer has shared a video for his new single “Tintoretto, It’s For You.” Today’s release comes on the heels of the announcement of his new album, Labyrinthitis, out March 25th via Merge Records.

The new Destroyer album is set to see Dan Bejar exploring some uncharted sonic territory. The mystic, intoxicating album opens up with the question, “Do you remember the mythic beast?” on “Tintoretto, It’s For You.” From then on, Bejar weaves peculiar images and perplexing allusions throughout Labyrinthitis. On today’s release, “Tintoretto, It’s For You,” Destroyer had a big role in creating the video for the first time ever.

“I had an idea of writing a couple lines on the idea of ‘mystery’ and ‘goin nowhere,’ as they are two of my favorite themes,” Bejar explains. “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…”

Watch the video for “Tintoretto, It’s For You” below.

“It hopefully presents some loose giallo vibes despite the fact that it clearly isn’t a giallo at all,” director David Galloway adds of the clip. “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.”
