Though he’s not likely to release a new film anytime soon, that hasn’t stopped David Lynch from finding a new outlet for his creativity: music. His second solo album, The Big Dream is out now and a new ten-minute video has arrived online chronicling how the record came together. The behind-the-scenes video is pretty straightforward (though starting off and interspersed with Lynch-ian weirdness) and features probably the most direct interview that Lynch has ever done, at least in terms of shedding light on his process. You can also catch some footage of Lynch playing slide guitar in the studio. It’s great that Lynch is still excited about pushing his own boundaries at his age but we still wish someone with some extra cash would just finance Lynch’s next cinematic foray into the weird. Someone get Megan Ellison on the phone. Watch below and tell us if »

The "Mulholland Drive" and "Blue Velvet" director's video comes with an epilepsy warning, and it's immediately obvious why: It flashes through a string of creepy images, strobe-light-style, ultimately reading as a four-minute distillation of "Lynchian" filmmaking. In other words, it's super intense and resistant to easy interpretation.
Aside from being a famously surrealistic director, a controversial modus operandi that has earned him praise and criticism in equal measure, Lynch is also a recording artist. His latest album, "The Big Dream," is out July 16 -- and it features Lykke Li on a bonus track.

David Lynch has unveiled new single 'Star Dream Girl'.
The track is the first official single from the director's upcoming second solo album The Big Dream.
It is available now as a double-a side digital single alongside 'Are You Sure'.
Lynch said: "After I moved away from Boise, Idaho, I came back in the summer of '61. Around that time, Jerry Lee Lewis was supposed to play at this big club in the Sagebrush Desert - I think it was called the Miramar. Back then, these big events would catch people's imaginations.
"They would take their motorcycles or hot rods to these remote places to see some star. So we all drove out to this place, but Jerry never showed up and people were really pissed off.
"'Star Dream Girl' has that same kind of charisma. People can't wait to see her and come from miles around."
He added: "The »

David Lynch has voiced his dislike for the modern trend of watching movies on smartphones and portable devices.
The legendary Blue Velvet director, who will release his new studio album The Big Dream on July 15, opened up about the state of cinema in an interview with The New Review for this week's Independent on Sunday.
Lynch stated his belief that modern technology is damaging the filmgoing experience.
"If you have a chance to enter another world, then you need a big picture in a dark room with great sound," he said.
"It's a spiritual, magic experience. If you have the same movie on a little computer screen with bad sound - and this is the way people are seeing films now - it's such a shame. It's a shameful, shameful thing. It's so pathetic."
Lynch also cast doubt on the prospect of him making another movie, saying that he felt »
Trent Reznor and David Lynch previously put their heads together for the latter's 1997 movie "Lost Highway," so it makes sense that they've decided to collaborate again, this time on Nine Inch Nails' new stuff. Lynch will direct the music video to "Came Back Haunted," Nine Inch Nails' first single from new album "Hesistation Marks," due on Sept. 3. Reznor Tweeted a pic of him and Lynch together (as seen here), just to prove we're not, in fact, dreaming. Speaking of dreams, Lynch has his own album "The Big Dream" coming out in a month, on July 16. Maybe Reznor was around »

Did you see David Lynch's teaser on Vine? The real announcement is here: he'll be dropping a new album, The Big Dream, on July 16th. Watch the album trailer above and listen to the new track, "I'm Waiting Here", below:
"Using a structure known from literature Nymphomaniac consists of chapters, encapsulating both Volume I and Volume II and during the next eight months, starting from June and like domino pieces counting down to the release, small bites of these chapters will be published exclusively by a community of selected newspapers around the world.
Each chapter teaser is defined by a headline, a still and a short narrative that playfully unveils the multilayered universe of Nymphomaniac with which Lars von Trier wants to introduce a new film genre: Digressionism."

David Lynch is to release a second solo album, described as a "tighter" and "more confident" followup to 2011's Crazy Clown Time. The Big Dream, due on 15 July, includes a cover of a Bob Dylan song and a collaboration with Swedish indie star Lykke Li.
Whereas Lynch's last LP was generally portrayed as a weird dance album, The Big Dream is described as "a hybrid, modernised form of low-down blues". "Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there," Lynch said in a statement. "The blues is an honest and emotional form of music that is thrilling to the soul. I keep coming back to it because it feels so good."

So a bit of good news/bad news for David Lynch fans. The good news is that he's got something new to share with you, the bad news is that it isn't a new movie. Nope, the director has instead cranked out another album, this time called The Big Dream, which is far less of a Lynch-ian name than his previous effort, Crazy Clown Time. But as usual, he's got some surprises up his sleeve. Most notably, he's teamed with Swedish sensation Lykke Li for "I'm Waiting Here," and while you can listen to it in advance, if you want to own it, you'll have to buy the digital or vinyl editions of the album. Meanwhile, Lynch also covers Bob Dylan's "The Ballad Of Hollis Brown" among the rest of the album which contains 11 original tunes. "Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and »
