The Avalanches have shared the music video for a new song called “Running Red Lights,” and it features Pink Siifu and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. During his verse, Pink Siifu raps lyrics from David Berman’s Purple Mountains song “Darkness and Cold.” Listen to it, and find the band’s statement about the song, below.

The video for “Running Red Lights” was made in dedication to David Berman and directed by Greg Brunkalla. “This was the 2nd video I did with the Avalanches,” Brunkalla said in a press release, “but the first time I actually met Robbie [Chater] and Tony [Di Blasi] in person. For ‘Running Red Lights’ they asked if I could include a few key elements–like neon, a psychic and have it take place in L.A. Oh and they wanted a little heartbreak, a theme that also ran through ‘Because I’m Me.’ I had a great time collaborating with them in L.A. When creating music videos, it’s always best to be able to have access to the musicians along the way.”

The Avalanches recently released their Blood Orange collaboration “We Will Always Love You,” The group’s last album was 2016’s Wildflower, which was their first in 16 years. In 2018, the Avalanches released a remix EP for their track “Because I’m Me” featuring Dâm-Funk, Moor Mother, and others.
