Song Of The Day: Purple Mountains – Darkness and Cold

After a lengthy break, former Silver Jews frontman David Berman is back with Purple Mountains, a new project that finds him backed up by members of Woods.

“Darkness and Cold,” one of the standout numbers off Purple Mountains’ self-titled debut, tells the tale of a relationship falling apart with the video featuring Berman as a sad sack alternately moping around the house and hovering about like an unseen ghost as his partner prepares to go out. “The light of my life is going out tonight,” he sings, though clearly not with him.

Purple Mountains is out now on Drag City Records. Check out the video for “Darkness and Cold” below:
