Dan Bejar is set to return with his next Destroyer LP Poison Season later this summer, and in anticipation of the record's arrival, he's shared a new clip for "Girl in a Sling."

The video is a rather dark and gloomy affair, featuring low lighting, shots of dilapidated houses and a solemn-looking Bejar delivering the song's lyrics in a dimly lit room.

In a press release, director David Galloway shared the following statement about working with Bejar on the clip:

Bejar sings a lot about cities and girls and injury, sometimes all at the same time. Sometimes they are the same thing, as surreal novelists would have us believe. Besides, people like to see Dan sing — which he doesn't do a lot of in this video, but he does do a little bit. We wanted to make a video that dealt with central Destroyer themes: to some, Destroyer is a lech; to some, he is an arsonist; to some, he is a savior. To me, he is the consummate comedian, but he resists that role. So we decided to go the opposite way and make something sad, something tragic, something that fits the new record. The adage 'comedy equals tragedy plus time' is attributed to Carol Burnett's mum. Or it might have been Steve Allen. Either way, I always want Dan to do physical comedy, but he resists. He's a natural, though. He's the Pacific Northwest's Buster Keaton, and I hope one day to share that with the world. One day. For now, though, there's just this sadness. This poison season.

Poison Season is out August 28 via Merge.
