Dream pop singer Chrysta Bell and David Lynch have collaborated on a new EP, Somewhere in the Nowhere, which is due out October 7th. Lynch wrote and produced the project. Today, the first track from the record was released, "Beat the Beat".
Consequence of Sound reports, "The two musicians' creative relationship goes back many years. Lynch co-wrote and produced Bell's debut album, 2011's This Train; she appeared on Lynch's 2007 Inland Empire OST and performed at a recent benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation. Bell is also expected to make a cameo in Lynch's star-studded 2017 Twin Peaks reboot.
""The first time I saw her perform, I thought she was like an alien," Lynch said of Bell in a press release. "The most beautiful alien ever." He also described her as "not only a killer performer, she also has a great intuitive ability to catch a mood and find a melody that's really spectacular.""
On October 8th and 9th, Lynch will be throwing a music festival at Downtown Los Angeles' Ace Hotel & Theatre. Entitled David Lynch's Festival of Disruption, the two night spectacular will feature performances by St. Vincent, Robert Plant, and Rhye. The show also boast a performance of music from Twin Peaks featuring Sky Ferreira and Xiu Xiu. The event will also feature talks by Frank Gehry, Mel Brooks, Kyle MacLachlan & Laura Dern, Blondie's Debbie Harry & Chris Stein, as well as photography exhibits by David Lynch (curated by Kayne Griffin Corcoran gallery) and Chris Stein, virtual reality experiences by Chris Milk, a new dance piece choreographed by Ryan Heffington, DJ sets by Questlove and KCRW's Jason Bentley.
