Filmmaker David Lynch is tackling a new medium, making his
solo debut as a musical artist this fall with CRAZY CLOWN TIME.
Produced and written by Lynch, the album’s 14 original songs
spotlight him on guitar and vocals and will be released on November 8 by
independent British label Sunday Best Recordings/PIAS in America.
CRAZY CLOWN TIME will be available for purchase at retail
outlets in both physical and digital formats, including a Collector’s Edition
CD, iTunes exclusive with video and a double LP set with bonus tracks.
Through the years, Lynch has collaborated frequently with
others on various musical projects—composer Angelo Badalamenti (TWIN PEAKS),
Polish pianist Marek Zebrowski (INLAND EMPIRE), plus Sparklehorse and Danger
Mouse (DARK NIGHT OF THE SOUL). CRAZY CLOWN TIME, however, marks the first time
Lynch steps into the spotlight alone.
“The love of experimenting with sound and music is what’s
driving this boat,” Lynch explains. “All of the songs on the album started as a
jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared.”
Lynch recorded CRAZY CLOWN TIME over several months at his
own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who contributes guitar and
drums to several songs. The recording process, Lynch recalls, was filled with
happy creative accidents. “There were so many accidents; this album should be
in the hospital.” The result is a collection of dark songs Lynch has described
as “modern blues.”
Four years ago, motivated by his growing musical ambitions,
Lynch became the eponymous creator of the David Lynch Music Company. Then, in
2010, he transformed his website into an immersive digital
archive that offers material released by David Lynch Music Company since its
launch, plus unreleased singles, experiments and instrumentals created by Lynch
and collaborators throughout the years.
