FIRST AID KIT SHARES TWO-TRACK BUNDLE IN HONOR OF DAVID BERMAN

Today, First Aid Kit has released two songs as a tribute to David Berman, “Strange Beauty” and their rendition of Silver Jews’ “Random Rules.” Listen to both tracks HERE. “Strange Beauty” is an original song in honor of the late American musician and poet, with its chorus showcasing the sisters’ signature harmonies: And when you are gone / The world it moves on / But it’s lost its strange beauty.

In speaking about David Berman and their homage to his life and legacy, Klara says: “I think a lot of people were as shocked as I was upon hearing the news of David Berman’s passing. It didn’t seem real. It left me completely devastated. So I wrote the song ‘Strange Beauty’ to try to make sense of my feelings.” She continues, “‘Random Rules’ is a long time Berman favorite of ours and a song we always thought we would record if we ever made a cover album. It holds some of the greatest lyrics ever penned and shows the genius of David Berman. We hope the songs can be some kind of comfort.”
