David Lynch has a new album coming out! By the sound of lead single “I’m Waiting Here,” featuring Lykke Li, it might lean a little less on the freaky-deaky dissonance of Crazy Clown Time, and a little more on the kinds of sounds that actually turn up in Lynch’s films. Li gives the kind of understatedly powerful vocal performance for which she’s become known over a smoky noir backing that’s equal parts this and this. Listen below via Spotify:
The album, dubbed The Big Dream, arrives July 16 from Sacred Bones, and features a cover that’s a rare departure from that label’s distinctive visual aesthetic. The art is, uh, worse off for it. Just imagine seeing Lynch’s name on something like this.
