    Last year the David Lynch Foundation celebrated its 10th Anniversary with a concert at Los Angeles's Ace Hotel that featured a diverse assembly of artists performing music from David Lynch's film and television soundtracks. The evening was recorded, and now, that unique concert experience is being made available in the form of a double-LP, dubbed, The Music of David Lynch, out April 15 on the Communion label.

    The collection boasts an all-star roster of artists playing songs taken straight out of the pages of Lynch's book, so to speak. The collection offers covers of songs that Lynch married to visuals in his films: Sky Ferreira dons "Blue Velvet;" Zola Jesus takes on "In Heaven;" Lykke Li has her way with "Wicked Games;" and two-thirds of The Flaming Lips (Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd) dive deep into the music world of Eraserhead and The Elephant Man, emerging with a piece called "Soundscape from Eraserhead and The Elephant Man." Duran Duran, Karen O, Chrysta Bell, Donovan, Jim James, Moby, Tennis, Rebekah Del Rio, as well as the Chicago-based Twin Peaks, are also featured on the double-LP. To round things off, Lynch's musical collaborator, Angelo Badalamenti, reprises "Laura Palmer's Theme," "Twin Peaks Theme," and "Dance of the Dream Man."

    The David Lynch Foundation's "about" section on its website, summarizes the work its done, "Since opening its doors in 2005, the David Lynch Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, has helped to bring the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique to more than 500,000 children and adults around the world. We focus our efforts on underserved inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; and women and children who are survivors of violence and abuse."

    In other David Lynch news, Xiu Xiu's releasing a Twin Peaks covers album for Record Store Day (April 16), Plays the Music of Twin Peaks.
