David Lynch, as you probably all know, is not only a talented filmmaker but an equally ingenious musician and painter. And although there is still no news on a new feature from the director, we did hear he was thinking about returning to TV; and on top of that, here he is again, proving that he's been hard at work on his next creative endeavour – so you can hardly say that he's been slacking off of late, can you?
Lynch follows his last solo LP Crazy Clown Time with the aptly titled 'The Big Dream', featuring 11 original songs, plus a cover of Bob Dylan's "The Ballad of Hollis Brown". According to Pitchfork, Lynch described the music of the album as "modern blues" and 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."
