In shying away from the English language, Destroyer will next month be delivering a unique EP, entirely in Spanish. That’s right, Dan Bejar and crew have decided to present covers of Spanish musician Antonio Luque’s work, as here we get a first taste from the aptly titled Five Spanish Songs project. In speaking on the Spanish compilation, Bejar had this to say:

It was 2013. The English language seemed spent, despicable, not easily singable. It felt over for English; good for business transactions, but that’s about it. The only other language I know is Spanish, and the only Spanish songs I really know are those of Sr. Chinarro, led by Antonio Luque. I’ve been a decades-long fan of how he conducted his affairs, his strange words, his melodies that have always felt so natural (this is important), his bitter songs about painting the light. Something about them, I knew I could do it…

So whether or not you’re fluent in Spanish, this is a pretty cool idea, nonetheless, Enjoy the first taste, “El Rito,” below. Five Spanish Songs will be releasing on November 26.
