David Lynch, I Believe You Can Get Me Through The Night

by David Lynch

The cool guy shares his art, unveils his new album, The Big Dream, and leaves a song recipe beneath Flaunt’s Astrakhan pillow.
Do you like air raids? Do you like sonorous calls from a porcelain nightingale held high in your sweaty palm? David Lynch does. The artist’s second full-length audio release, The Big Dream, exercises these audio oddities, forgoing the analog flourishes of his films in favor of electronic-based production. The 12-song LP, 11 of which were written by Lynch himself, features a cover of Bob Dylan’s 1964 folk ditty “The Ballad of Hollis Brown.” The album is a meditation on the blues genre, befitting for the originator of numerous slow-burning melancholic film classics. In The Big Dream, Lynch revisits archetypes held dear. The psychopaths, hopeless romantics, and misfits the artist often conjured—and cinephiles analyzed—are reimagined for strictly aural consumption.

In Recipe for a Song, we find the mastermind enthusiastically dismantling his production process, taking a decidedly Lynchian approach to what could otherwise simply be an exercise in music theory.
