Last fall David Lynch released the album "Crazy Clown Time," which EW describes as "a strange yet strangely engaging collection of po-mo blues and electro-pop tunes, filled with thumping, grumpy complaints about love gone wrong and at least one stream of consciousness riff on the creative process. And dentistry."

He is now in the midst of editing a music video he directed for the title track (pictured). He tells EW that a Crazy Clown Time video should "have an intense psychotic backyard craziness, fueled by beer.” As for whether Lynch will ever perform his music live, he says, "Jeff, take the word ‘terrify’ and then make every letter as big as Mt. Rushmore, and you’ll have a good idea how I feel [about performing live]." So, maybe not. Listen to "Crazy Clow Time" below:
