As I’m heading out the door, I get the e-mail about the Sacred Bones pre-order for David Lynch’s newest release, The Big Dream. Self described as “modern blues,” David Lynch’s material tends to sway off in a very unique direction from there. One track has been revealed featuring Lykke Li, check it out down below!

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 album‚Äôs 12 tracks. Also included in the lineup is Lynch‚Äôs signature take on the Bob Dylan folk classic ‚ÄúThe Ballad of Hollis Brown,‚ÄĚ and a bonus track contribution featuring acclaimed Swedish musician Lykke Li. The Big Dream was recorded over several months at Lynch‚Äôs own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who also contributes production and instrumentation to the album.
Describing his style of music as ‚Äúmodern blues,‚ÄĚ Lynch says,‚Äúmost 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.‚ÄĚ 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 ‚ÄúStar Dream Girl,‚ÄĚ the tender romantic in ‚ÄúThe Big Dream,‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúAre You Sure,‚ÄĚ the smooth psychopath in ‚ÄúSay It,‚ÄĚ and the quirky oddball in ‚ÄúSun Can‚Äôt Be Seen No More.‚ÄĚ
While Lynch touches on modern electronic production (‚ÄúWishin‚Äô Well‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúLast Call‚ÄĚ) and classically dreamy material (‚ÄúAre You Sure,‚ÄĚ‚ÄúCold Wind Blowin‚Äô‚ÄĚ), the album always manages to keep one foot rooted in the blues‚ÄĒa style of music he loves.‚ÄúThe 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,‚ÄĚ Lynch says. The double lP comes with a bonus 7-inch, ‚ÄúI‚Äôm Waiting Here,‚ÄĚ featuring Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li. The B-side of the 7-inch contains a one-of-a-kind etching inscribed by Lynch.
