David Lynch’s Big Dream

Two years after his debut as a musician, multimedia artist David Lynch is back with his second album, The Big Dream.

David Lynch is mostly known for being one of cinema’s most unique talents, with movies such as The Elephant Man, Blue VelvetMulholland Drive, and the now notorious TV-series Twin Peaks behind him. However, David Lynch’s boundless creativity spills over into the realms of painting, photography, and songwriting, as well as numerous interdisciplinary projects. Two years ago he made his debut as a musician with the album Crazy Clown Time, and this summer he returns with his second album, The Big Dream.

Beside eleven of David Lynch’s own songs, the album also includes a version of Bob Dylan’s classic tune The Ballad of Hollis Brown, and the already celebrated collaboration with Swedish singer Lykke Li, I’m Waiting Here. While he touches on modern electronic production as well as classically dreamy material, David Lynch constantly keeps one foot rooted in the blues, a style of music he loves.

– The Blues is an honest and emotional form of music that is thrilling to the soul. I keep coming back to it, because it feels so good, he says.

Together with the album David Lynch also released a short documentary where he talks about his relation to music and the making of the album The Big Dream.
