(Girlie) Acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch will make his solo debut as a musical artist this fall with Crazy Clown Time.
Produced and written by Lynch, the album's 14 original songs spotlight him on guitar and vocals. The album will be released on November 8 by independent British label Sunday Best Recordings / PIAS in America.
Two tracks released late last year – "Good Day Today" and "I Know" – already have American and British critics buzzing about the album.
Crazy Clown Time will be available for purchase at retail outlets in both physical and digital formats, including a Collector's Edition CD; iTunes exclusive with video; and a double LP set with bonus tracks.
"The love of experimenting with sound and music is what's driving this boat," explained the self-taught 'non-musician'. "All of the songs on the album started as a jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared."
Lynch recorded Crazy Clown Time over several months at his own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who contributes guitar and drums to several songs. The recording process, Lynch recalls, was filled with happy creative accidents. "There were so many accidents; this album should be in the hospital."
