Purple Mountains is the new project of David Berman, who was previously the frontman (and sole constant member) of Silver Jews. Berman’s self-titled debut album under the Purple Mountains name is due out July 12 via Drag City. Now he has shared another song from it, “Darkness and Cold,” via a video for the track. Ben Berman (who is not related to David) directed the video, which stars David and his wife Cassie Berman as she prepares to go out for the night without him, which is also the subject of the song. Watch it below, followed by Purple Mountains’ upcoming tour dates.

Purple Mountains is Berman’s first album in 11 years, since 2008’s Silver Jews album Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea. Previously the first Purple Mountains single, “All Happiness is Gone,” was shared.

That’s not his wife in the video (aside from the pictures that are featured), it’s just someone who resembles her.

Sam, we checked with the publicist and that is indeed David’s wife Cassie.
