Oh, dear God, it's really happening. Cult director David Lynch (and the man who put North Bend, WA on the map as Twin Peaks) will release his first-ever solo album Crazy Clown Time on November 8 through PIAS records. Says the press release:
Sunday Best and PIAS America are pleased to announce that the title track from Crazy Clown Time, David Lynch's first-ever solo album will be free to download on Lynch's official Facebook page for a limited time beginning Tuesday, October 4. Lynch cryptically describes the song as "a phenomenon of the age in which we live." The full album will be released internationally on November 7 and in the North America on November 8.
Hear the title track after the jump.
First impressions? Squeamishly creepy. According to this interview, Lynch heads up both vocals and guitar while longtime Lynch soundtrack collaborator Angelo Badalamenti wrangles beats and undulating waves of dark, ambient fuzz. I'm left with a quote from Agent Dale Cooper looping through my mind: "I have no idea where this will lead us, but I have a definite feeling it will be a place both wonderful and strange."
Hear it for yourself, but don't say I didn't warn you!
