Today Destroyer (aka Dan Bejar) announced the May 6th digital and limited-edition vinyl release of “My Mystery” b/w “My Mystery (DJ .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) remix).” “My Mystery,” was recorded in the same sessions as last year’s Poison Season and, according to a press release, was a fan favorite.

Bejar says: “We recorded a song called ‘My Mystery’ a year and a half ago. Kind of a light number, vaguely danceable. Wistful, looking back not unfondly on time spent and dull misadventures had within the dead-as-a-doornail music industry. And the feeling of where it leaves you, like a rat in the middle of the ocean, though not as harsh as that; as if rats could swim an ocean’s length.”

DJ .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) later asked Bejar is he had anything for him to remix and you can watch the video for the remix below and read our recent interview with him here.

The video was filmed in Mexico City by Nicloas Bragg, who says: “‘An ideal city must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery…’ -Luis Barragan. Night falls on CDMX and Destroyer dreams of chasing architects along the oval horse track surrounding Parque Mexico. Old dogs, old men and old Bejar stray into the mesh of fountains, facades and blood orange flumes. My Mystery captures our last hours in Mexico City. Taco stands and mezcal bars point the way-all while people keep death in their wine-sloshed eyes.”
