Academy Award winning director, David Lynch, is 63 today.
David Lynch has already released the singles "Good Day Today" and "I Know" from his forthcoming album Crazy Clown Time. But as is usual for Lynch productions, this whole thing is still a bit... confusing.
In an effort to elucidate matters, Lynch has kindly unveiled a trailer for the album that features in-studio footage shot with the director’s signature ambient strangeness.
The footage doesn't quite answer questions like, “Why is David Lynch making an electro-pop album?” or “Why is it called Crazy Clown Time?,” much less “is Dale Cooper still possessed by Demon Bob?” or “what exactly was the deal with the cowboy guy in Mulholland Drive?”
But it’s a nice way to add some signature Lynch strangeness to your day.
Crazy Clown Time, which will feature a duet with Karen O., will be out on Nov. 8 from Sunday Best Recordings/[PIAS]. Below is the track listing, featuring the director’s commentary on each song. I think we can all relate to the subject matter of “Pinky’s Dream.”
