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. Look for it on November 8 by independent British label Sunday Best Recordings and PIAS in America. In addition to physical and digital formats there will be a "Collector’s Edition" CD, an iTunes exclusive with video and a double LP set with bonus tracks.
Lynch’s passion for music has always figured prominently into his filmmaking, starting with his feature debut Eraserhead (1977)—which included “In Heaven,” a song he wrote with Peter Ivers—and continuing through to his most recent work, Inland Empire (2006)—which featured several tracks penned by Lynch. He’s also frequently collaborated 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…All of the songs on the album started as a jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared. -David Lynch
