David Lynch's Debut Album 'Crazy Clown Time' Lands On November 8th, Features Karen O

In a recent interview, moviemaker Abel Ferrara, discussing the current state of cinema said, “My kind of filmmakers don’t really exist [anymore]...[David] Lynch doesn’t even want to make films anymore. I’ve talked to him about it, OK? I can tell when he talks about it. I’m a lunatic, and he’s pushing transcendental meditation." And certainly, that seems to bear out. It has been five years since Lynch dropped the middling "Inland Empire" and since then he's done anything but direct a movie, instead taking on webcasts, nightclub openings and fashion ad campaigns (though last year there was a half-hearted crowdsourcing attempt to fund a documentary about himself). For better or worse, music seems to be Lynch's new muse (his website is titled David Lynch Music Company in case you need a further tipoff as to his focus these days) and the director is now set to drop his debut album.

It has been five years since Lynch dropped the middling "Inland Empire" and since then he's done anything but direct a movie, instead taking on webcasts, nightclub openings and fashion ad campaigns (though last year there was a half-hearted crowdsourcing attempt to fund a documentary about himself). For better or worse, music seems to be Lynch's new muse (his website is titled David Lynch Music Company in case you need a further tipoff as to his focus these days) and the director is now set to drop his debut album.

Titled Crazy Clown Time (a parody Lynch title if we ever heard one), Pitchfork reveals that it will street on November 8th and will feature Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O on the tune "Pinky's Dream." So what will it sound like? Hard to say at this point, but the director did pretty much do everything on the album by himself with an assist from engineer Dean Hurley who also plays guitar and drums on several songs. But if you want a taste of what's to come, his pretty awful electronic single from last fall "Good Day Today" is among the tracklist and you can hear it below.

We probably don't need to tell you we'd rather see Lynch do anything than fiddle around with a music career, but hey, if that's what makes the guy happy these days, more power to him we guess. Sunday Best Records will drop the album, which at the very least, will be interesting. Full tracklisting follows:
