Legendary multimedia artist David Lynch delivers the first official single from his sophomore solo album THE BIG DREAM. "Are You Sure" will be available to stream on YouTube and also for purchase on iTunes beginning today, Monday, June 24 as a double A-side digital single with "Star Dream Girl". The official single debut follows the first taste of the album, the expansive bonus song "I'm Waiting Here" featuring Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li. BLACKBOOKcalled it a "Dreamy track that feels like floating into a haze of sedation and pleasure that you wouldn't mind keeping on loop for nights on end."
Mr. Lynch describes the track as "kind of a beautiful challenge", and indeed, it is by turns mesmerising and spellbinding, haunting and heartbreaking - one of the simplest and most beautiful things he has done to date.
THE BIG DREAM will be released July 15 in Europe on Sunday Best Recordings - the British label that signed Lynch two years ago. The album 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 2011 debut Crazy Clown Time. "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."
