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 albumâs 12 tracks. Also included in the lineup is Lynchâs signature take on the Bob Dylan folk classic âThe Ballad of Hollis Brown,â and a bonus track contribution featuring acclaimed Swedish musician Lykke Li. The Big Dream was recorded over several months at Lynchâs own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who also contributes production and instrumentation to the album.
Describing his style of music as âmodern blues,â Lynch says,âmost 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 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 âStar Dream Girl,â the tender romantic in âThe Big Dream,â and âAre You Sure,â the smooth psychopath in âSay It,â and the quirky oddball in âSun Canât Be Seen No More.â
While Lynch touches on modern electronic production (âWishinâ Wellâ and âLast Callâ) and classically dreamy material (âAre You Sure,ââCold Wind Blowinââ), the album always manages to keep one foot rooted in the bluesâa style of music he loves.âThe 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 Lynch says. The double lP comes with a bonus 7-inch, âIâm Waiting Here,â featuring Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li. The B-side of the 7-inch contains a one-of-a-kind etching inscribed by Lynch.
