David Lynch has announced details of his second album 'The Big Dream'.

The album is the Twin Peaks director's follow-up to his 2011 debut, 'Crazy Clown Time'. It features a cover of Bob Dylan's 'The Ballad Of Hollis Brown' and also includes a collaboration with Lykke Li called 'I'm Waiting Here'. Scroll down and click 'play' to listen to 'I'm Waiting Here' now.

Lynch praised the Swedish singer in a press release announcing the album, saying: "She brought her own style to this song, which has a doo-wop sort of thing going on, but in a way it's far-removed from the '50s."

Elaborating further on the sound of 'The Big Dream', Lynch explained: "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, modernised form of low-down blues. 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."

'The Big Dream' will be released across Europe on July 15 on Sunday Best Recordings.
