Cinema’s heroic avant-garde auteur David Lynch has always had a proclivity towards music. Like that famous Patricia Arquette sex scene in Lost Highway that expertly used This Mortal Coil‘s cover of Tim Buckley‘s Song To The Siren. Now, Lynch is putting out his own record of electronic music.
As Fact Mag reports, Lynch first dabbled in this world last year when he released the single Good Day Today on the Sunday Best label, owned by UK DJ Rob da Bank. Now it seems a full LP is about to get released.
Details of the album – such as a release date – are rather sketchy, but all might be revealed in a special interview Lynch will give to the International Music Summit, which takes place on the Spanish island and clubbing epicentre, Ibiza, on May 24-29.
Lynch will not be on the island in person, but will be doing the interview via Skype from his studio in Los Angeles, accompanied by engineer ‘Big’ Dean Hurley.
In a press release, Lynch said, “I’m excited to talk to those attending the International Music Summit in Ibiza… Twelve months ago Jason Bentley from KCRW gave a track I made with my engineer Big Dean Hurley to Ben Turner and Rob da Bank of Sunday Best Recordings, and we return this year to chat about the full-length album we have just completed. I look forward to chatting with them and everyone else in attendance on May 26th live from my own studio in Los Angeles. We’ll talk about the music and how it came to be and exist. We had such a blast making it and I am honored to be a part of the International Music Summit.”
Ben Turner of the International Music Summit said, “This is a true honour. It was at the IMS 12 months ago that I heard Good Day Today for the first time, sat in the hills of Santa Agnes in Ibiza, trying to recover from the summit! I played this record and I was astonished it was produced by my favourite film director of all-time. Lynch didn’t make it for the dancefloors – he just made the music he felt inspired to make. One year on, it’s an incredible moment to have him beamed into the Ibiza delegation at the IMS so everybody can hear his musical story, his vision, and his future plans in music…”
