Crazy Clown Time - David Lynch



David Lynch, the genius behind Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive (one of my all time favourites!), The Straight Story (beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!) and other masterpieces, has got a new work coming out soon!
After filmmaking and visual arts, Lynch is now launching his first solo music project (Crazy Time Clown).
I have to say that, for me, this does not come as a big surprise. One just has to watch his films to understand how important music has always been in his career. His films would not be as interesting without that slightly crazy music in the background, that always seems to fit in so perfectly in the surrealist environments he creates. Just watch Mulholland Drive and you'll understand... Apart from that, Lynch has done musical collaborations before with other artists, most of them with wonderful results.
From what I have heard so far, I can only say that this album could only have been created within the depths of David Lynch's mind :) Play the video above and you'll see what I mean.

You can also check THIS WEBSITE to listen to another one of his musical projects, with a singer called Chrysta Bell. A bit different, but wonderful nevertheless.
The man is a genius and so good at everything he does... Unbelievable! 

Crazy Time Clown will be available from November 7.
