Destroyer returns on November 25 with Five Spanish Songs — the Vancouver rock experimentalist's unexpected en español follow-up to his wooly soft-jazz full-band 2011 effort Kaputt. Last month we heard the T. Rex-channeling electric stomper "El Rito" and now, thanks to Stereogum, we have the video for the far quieter "Bye Bye." For this project, Dan Bejar is exclusively playing the music of Sr. Chinarro songwriter Antonio Luque, and above we see him strumming this dreamy folk song at a chicken ranch amidst some lush vegetation. Stick around for the ending, which causes us to wonder if he's been singing one sweet adios to los pollos this entire time.

Pre-order the EP on CD or vinyl via Merge, and check Bejar's solo dates below — it's the last you'll see of Destroyer live until 2015.
