The good folks over at WelcomeToTwinPeaks.com have found a fascinating studio footage video where Lynch explains, from interviews over the years as well as his current project The Big Dream, his passion and interest in music. Lynch discusses the power of music and how it thrills him. It’s honestly a fantastic look into the mind of one of the most creative, unique, strange auteurs alive.
Director/musician David Lynch (Lost Highway, Blue Velvet) has streamed another new track from his upcoming album The Big Dream entitled “Star Dream Girl”. The track is a strange take on blues/surf rock that has that signature Lynch surreal flair about it. Get your groove on below.
Director/musician David Lynch has released “Are You Sure”, a new track from his upcoming album The Big Dream, which comes out July 16th (pre-order on iTunes). The track is a dreamy, slow pop track that sounds like it is lifted directly from the director’s 80′s films or from Twin Peaks (don’t tell me you couldn’t hear Julee Cruise singing over this). You can give it a listen below.

There’re two new videos today that I want to bring to your attention. The first is the official video for David Lynch‘s Crazy Clown Time, which comes off his album of the same name (review). The video is definitely NSFW as it features a woman with her breasts bared for a good majority of the video. That being said, it’s undeniably a Lynch video. With strange characters, bright colors and odd imagery, the music and visuals fit perfectly.
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.

Well, full details for the album, entitled Crazy Clown Time, have emerged and it’s sounding very impressive!
