David Berman is ready to release new music, but it’s not with his regular group Silver Jews. That band is still broken up, and has been for over a decade, so Berman is back with a new album and a new single from his new band Purple Mountains. This comes from Pitchfork, which notes that the group’s self-titled debut will be available on July 12 from Drag City. You can hear that first single, “All My Happiness Is Gone,” via the official music video below.

Berman will also be touring with Purple Mountains to support the album, with Pitchfork noting that these will be his first live shows in 10 years (Berman has long been famous for his aversion to live performances, even going back to the Silver Jews days). The full list of dates for that is also below.
