Dan Bejar has shared a new video for "foolssong," the closing song from Destroyer's latest LP Have We Met. Footage for the video was shot by director's David Galloway and David Ehrenreich during Destroyer's recent tour, which was cut short by the spread of COVID-19.
"Snow Day. At this very peculiar time, the expression 'Have We Met' deserves a question mark less than ever," Galloway and Ehrenreich said in a statement. "We likely haven’t met anyone new since March, and the cadence of this statement is more of an absolute than an actual inquiry. The tour got cancelled. We were making a film. Maybe we still are, it’s hard to tell, though. 'foolssong' is what’s left of that for now. 'foolssong' is a lullaby, it’s the painted book cover of a sinister romantic novel, and it’s our second favorite song on the album. Packing up mid-stride and pushing through North America to find solace in quarantine is a pretty foreign experience."
"With any luck, these alien landscapes provide only a temporary snapshot of an unfamiliar world," they continued, "a glimpse into a future that denotes self-separation, isolation, but on the bright side, maybe a little bit more wonder. Hopefully this is a picture that does not dry."
