This Night is the fifth studio album by Destroyer, released on October 2, 2002. (It was the first on Merge Records). Most of the material was written in Madrid, where Bejar went to sidestep a tour with The New Pornographers, following the critical success of that supergroups's first album.[1][2] Ten years after its release, Bejar reflected on the impetus for This Night: "I was done with the English pop craft that I was into in the late 90s and into dark loose ends. I wanted to make a mysterious sounding record."[3]
