Last week, we found ourselves in love and mesmerized with David Lynch’s new single “I’m Waiting Here.” Featuring Swedish songstress Lykke Li, the blue-lit and swooning track is the first off Lynch’s new album, The Big Dream, due out this summer. As his second foray into the world as a proper recording artist, Lynch carving out his own place as a musician, with a sound that’s a bit of an evolution from his first record Crazy Clown Time.
And with The Big Dream, the Lynch said, “Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there. What comes out is a hybrid, modernized form of low-down blues.” And that low-down sound is something we’ve come to love from the bizarre and wonderful artist, whose music sounds hits the senses much differently than his films but still exists in that same world of the psyche. And thanks to the exclusive photo (featured below) from The Hollywood Reporter, we learn that Lynch’s Parker Fly Electric guitar is what features most prominently on the record, which is set to debut in less than a month on July 16th. “Sometimes the lyrics come first but mostly the music is talking to you about how it wants to be,” says Lynch, “and then the lyrics are born out of that. It’s a strange phenomenon, but I love doing it.”
So while you count down the moments until the album arrives, take a listen to the full album preview, watch his desert serenade video, and pre-order the album now. That or just start watching Wild at Heart, the ultimate summer movie, every night for the next month.
