David Berman’s Purple Mountains

    Earlier this season, David Berman launched Purple Mountains, his first musical venture since Silver Jews split up more than a decade ago. His self-titled debut is arriving next month, and in anticipation, he’s sharing a new song off it called “Darkness and Cold”.

    Not unlike lead single “All My Happiness is Gone”, this latest cut wrestles with a kind of melancholy. “The light of my life is going out tonight/ In a pink champagne Corvette,” Berman dismally sings.
