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!

This is a gatefold 2xLP  which includes a bonus 7″ and a B-side etching done by Lynch himself. Oh, and this release has a Bob Dylan cover of “The Ballad of Hollis Brown.”

The details below give  a lot of information, so check those out!

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’s 12 tracks. Also included in the lineup is Lynch’s signature take on the Bob Dylan folk classic “The Ballad of Hollis Brown,” and a bonus track contribution featuring acclaimed Swedish musician Lykke Li. The Big Dream was recorded over several months at Lynch’s own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who also contributes production and instrumentation to the album.

Describing his style of music as “modern blues,” Lynch says,“most 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.” 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 “Star Dream Girl,” the tender romantic in “The Big Dream,” and “Are You Sure,” the smooth psychopath in “Say It,” and the quirky oddball in “Sun Can’t Be Seen No More.”

While Lynch touches on modern electronic production (“Wishin’ Well” and “Last Call”) and classically dreamy material (“Are You Sure,”“Cold Wind Blowin’”), the album always manages to keep one foot rooted in the blues—a style of music he loves.“The 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,” Lynch says. The double lP comes with a bonus 7-inch, “I’m Waiting Here,” featuring Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li. The B-side of the 7-inch contains a one-of-a-kind etching inscribed by Lynch.
