Album artwork for The Big Dream by David Lynch

The legendary multimedia artist David Lynch returns this summer with the follow-up to 'Crazy Clown Time', his acclaimed 2011 solo debut. 'The Big Dream' is released on Sunday Best Recordings. The new album sees Lynch returning to primary songwriting and performance duties, writing 11 out of the album's 12 tracks. Also included in the lineup is Lynch's signature take on the Bob Dylan folk classic 'The Ballad of Hollis Brown'. 'The Big Dream' was recorded over several months at Lynch's own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who also contributes production and instrumentation to the album. Describing his style of music as 'modern blues,' Lynch says the songwriting process for his new album was similar to his debut. "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."Deluxe CD in gatefold card wallet with 12 page booklet.The double-LP set pressed on Heavyweight Vinyl and is accompanied by a bonus 7" that contains the Lykke Li track on side A, and a visual etching on side B that was hand-inscribed directly into lacquer by Lynch exclusively for this release. Lynch praised Lykke Li as a natural songwriter with a great intuition for lyrics and melody: "She brought her own style to this song, which has a doo-wop sort of thing going on, but in a way it's far-removed from the '50s."
