Is there nothing David Lynch can’t do? First he puts out a word-music book called Dark Night of the Soul with Danger Mouse, then goes and makes some of greatest movies of all time (see here), and now will issue a dance single on Rob Da Bank’s illustrious label Sunday Best.
The single is called "Good Day Today" and it will be released, well, today. But there is a rather strange backdrop to this single. It was mistakenly credited to Underworld by LA based radio station KCRW’s Jason Bentley. Why? We don’t really know. However, the record was then subsequently put into the hands of Sunday Best Recordings’ Ben Turner, and the rest was history.
The single itself is rather good. Melancholy as usual, but certainly has that Lynch trademark that we all know and love. Go here to have a listen.
Lynch will follow this release up with a full LP in early 2011 accompanied by remixes. What’s even more exciting is that Lynch has enlisted Vaughan Oliver to make the art for his music; Vaughan Oliver is the man behind the memorable artwork of Cocteau Twin and Pixies.
When asked if this single could be a hit Lynch replied: "Absolutely," he said. "With a bullet."
The man is 64 years old, a huge advocate of transcendental meditation and dabbles in a little bit of all the arts. Definitely a visionary.
