The track is taken from Lynch’s debut album ‘Crazy Clown Time’, which is released on November 7 on the Sunday Best label.
Lynch, who is best known as the visionary behind films such as Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, has described the LP as “modern blues”. He said: “The love of experimenting with sound and music is what was driving this boat. All of the songs on the album started as a jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared.”
The director will play the guitar and sing on the album. The full tracklisting for ‘Crazy Clown Time’ is as follows:
‘Good Day Today’
‘Strange And Unproductive Thinking’
‘The Night Bell With Lightning’
‘Stone’s Gone Up’
‘Crazy Clown Time’
‘These Are My Friends’

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O recently showcased her opera Stop The Virgens in Brooklyn. She described the show as a “psycho opera” and likened it to a “psychedelic ride laced with catharsis”.
The singer also recently recorded a cover of Willie Nelson’s single ‘Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys’ for a fast-food advertisement for a Mexican restaurant.
