Visionary filmmaker David Lynch will make 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. The album will be released on Nov. 8 by independent British label Sunday Best Recordings / PIAS in America.
If you dig Lynch's films, then there is a strong chance you will feel the same about his tunes.
Through the years, Lynch has collaborated frequently with others on various musical projects, with 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. He's going it alone and we have all the faith in the world that he's killin' it.
"The love of experimenting with sound and music is what's driving this boat," explained the self-taught 'non-musician'. "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." That's just about brilliant, isn't it?
