New album from David Lynch
makes his return with a follow-up to Crazy Clown Time, his acclaimed 2011 solo debut. The Big Dream will be released July 15 in Europe on Sunday Best Recordings.
He has written 11 of the 12 tracks, the other being a cover of Bob Dylan's “The Ballad of Hollis Brown.” Lynch says the songwriting process for his new album was similar to his debut. “Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there. What comes out is a hybrid, modernized form of low-down blues.”
The album will be available in physical and digital formats (CD/LP/DL) all including an additional bonus download track 'I’m Waiting Here' with Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li. The double-LP set pressed on heavyweight vinyl will be accompanied by a bonus 7” that contains the Lykke Li track on side A, and a visual etching on side B that was hand-inscribed directly into lacquer by Lynch exclusively for this release. Lynch praised Lykke Li as a natural songwriter with a great intuition for lyrics and melody: “She brought her own style to this song, which has a doo-wop sort of thing going on, but in a way it’s far-removed from the ’50s.”
