David Berman’s New Project Purple Mountains Shares New Single, Announces Album Release and Tour Dates


Silver Jews fans, rejoice. Purple Mountains, the new project from David Berman, has announced the release date for its self-titled debut album, as well as some tour dates.

Purple Mountains will be released July 12 via Drag City Records. The 10-song LP was produced by Jeremy Earl and Jarvis Taveniere of the band Woods. The band is made up of Berman, members of Woods, and singer-songwriter Anna St. Louis.

Last week Purple Mountains released a surprise new single on 12” vinyl exclusively in record stores. Today, the video for “All My Happiness Is Gone” finally hits the internet. Watch it below.

This will mark the first time Berman has toured in over a decade. “I’m working with Jarvis to put together the live band,” Berman told American Songwriter last week, before revealing an even more tantalizing detail. “I’m going to be playing Silver Jews songs, that’s for sure.”
