At the age of 67, when most men begin to settle into the twilight of their years, the ever-prolific David Lynch seems to be just catching his second wind. In all honesty, if creativity was measured in gold bullion, Mr. Lynch would be Fort Knox. He’s a gifted filmmaker, visual artist, writer, and musician whose creativity knows no limits. Can you even fathom the levels of a mind that conjures up surrealist, mind-bending films like Eraserhead, Lost Highway andMulholland Drive? Over his lengthy career, David Lynch has been described as the “most important director of his era” and “the Renaissance Man of Modern American filmmaking” – accolades we agree with wholeheartedly.
This summer, we’ll be treated to yet another fine example of this man’s boundless creativity. He is continuing his musical odyssey by releasing his second album of original music on July 16th. His new LP is titled The Big Dream and it’s the follow-up to his 2011 solo debut, Crazy Clown Time.
David Lynch takes on the primary songwriting and performance duties on 11 of the 12 songs, and the disc features a reinterpretation of the Bob Dylan classic, “Ballad of Hollis Brown.” There is also a hypnotic bonus track featuring vocals by Swedish chanteuse, Lykke Li.
