Famed surrealist film auteur David Lynch dabbled with music in the past, making his first significant move into the industry with his dark electronic debut, Crazy Clown Time. Lynch will follow up his 2011 foray with an experimental LP, The Big Dream, later this summer. Today we get our first taste of the album: “I’m Waiting Here.”
The track is a collaboration with Swedish indie pop sensation Lykke Li and is pretty much the antithesis of the oft-declared “summer jam.” The production is dark; the mood is chilling; and Lykke Li’s echoing, wispy vocals behind the eerie downtempo back beat are appropriately Lynchian. Listen to “I’m Waiting Here” in all its Twin Peaks-esque glory exclusively through Spotify below.
David Lynch’s The Big Dream will see release July 16th via Sacred Bones.
