Legendary multimedia artist David Lynch returns this summer with the follow-up to Crazy Clown Time, his acclaimed 2011 solo debut. The new album sees Lynch returning to primary songwriting and performance duties, writing 11 out of the albumâ€™s 12 tracks. Also included in the lineup is Lynchâ€™s signature take on the Bob Dylan folk classic â€śThe Ballad of Hollis Brown,â€ť and a bonus track contribution featuring acclaimed Swedish musician Lykke Li. The Big Dream was recorded over several months at Lynchâ€™s own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who also contributes production and instrumentation to the album.
Describing his style of music as â€śmodern blues,â€ť Lynch says,â€śmost 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.â€ť As you would expect from an accomplished film director, the songs are cinematic in scope. Lynch uses his reverb-drenched guitar and processed voice to summon primal moods and melodies that color a strange world populated by character archetypes familiar to fans of his films: the irresistible femme fatale in â€śStar Dream Girl,â€ť the tender romantic in â€śThe Big Dream,â€ť and â€śAre You Sure,â€ť the smooth psychopath in â€śSay It,â€ť and the quirky oddball in â€śSun Canâ€™t Be Seen No More.â€ť
While Lynch touches on modern electronic production (â€śWishinâ€™ Wellâ€ť and â€śLast Callâ€ť) and classically dreamy material (â€śAre You Sure,â€ťâ€śCold Wind Blowinâ€™â€ť), the album always manages to keep one foot rooted in the bluesâ€”a style of music he loves.â€śThe Blues is an honest and emotional form of music that is thrilling to the soul. I keep coming back to it, because it feels so good,â€ť Lynch says. The double lP comes with a bonus 7-inch, â€śIâ€™m Waiting Here,â€ť featuring Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li. The B-side of the 7-inch contains a one-of-a-kind etching inscribed by Lynch.
