David Lynch Displays Guitar Skills on Second Album (Exclusive Photo)
"The Big Dream," which the director-musician describes as "modern blues," is slated for release on July 16.
What started as a musical experiment is flourishing into a full-on recording career for David Lynch.
The legendary director of such films as Blue Velvet and Lost Highway is set to release his second album, The Big Dream, on July 16.
The follow-up to his solo debut, 2011’s Crazy Clown Time, the album (distributed by Sacred Bones) features a cover of Bob Dylan’s "The Ballad of Hollis Brown" and a bonus track with Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li (hear it here). Lynch describes the collection as “modern blues.” It was recorded with engineer by Dean Hurley over several months at Lynch's own Asymmetrical Studio.
Hurley also contributes some of the instrumentation on the album, but it’s Lynch’s guitar playing that can be heard most prominently. Wondering what kind of six-string the famous auteur plays? As this exclusive photo shows, it’s a Parker Fly electric (the deluxe model retails for over $4,000).
But don’t expect to see Lynch playing it outside the comforts of his own recording room or on a stage. There are no plans to tour The Big Dream as of yet.
