Late last year, I wrote an article about legendary director David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Eraserhead, Twin Peaks) wanting to compose and release a music album. Originally, the album was supposed to be released in June, but due to situations arising, the release date was pushed. Well, full details for the album, entitled Crazy Clown Time, have emerged and it’s sounding very impressive!
The album will be released on November 8th via Sunday Best Recordings and will be available for purchase at retail outlets in both physical and digital formats, including a Collector’s Edition CD; iTunes exclusive with video; and a double LP set with bonus tracks.
Lynch states: “The love of experimenting with sound and music is what’s driving this boat. All of the songs on the album started as a jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared.”

The 14-track album was recorded at Lynch’s own Asymmetrical Studio with producer Dean Hurley, who contributed guitar and drum parts to the album. Lynch says that the process had many creative accidents and that, “There were so many accidents; this album should be in the hospital.”
The opening track, “Pinky’s Dream”, features Karen O of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
