"Across the Night" was the fifth and final single released by rock band Silverchair from their fourth album, Diorama. It is the first track on Diorama, and is a major departure from their previous, grungy sound which was featured on Frogstomp, which was released in 1995. This more progressive type of songwriting is also present on Silverchair's latest album Young Modern. A video was created for the song in the style of early 1900s cinema featuring acclaimed Australian actor Guy Pearce.
