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

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.
