:D I got the single maybe a week ago. There was some pretty high expectations on my part for Imaginary Girl since I hadn't heard it, and I was very afraid of being let down. David Lynch always manages to deliver though, the song brought a smile to my face instantly and made my day. He's so damn inspiring.

Does anyone know why it wasn't availble direct from davidlynch.com though? I hope Polish Night Music is on there at least.

And where's that video from?! How did they get that vdeo or who is posted it? Is it in the members part of davidlynch.com?(haven't been a member for a year or so)

Polish Night isn't available from DL's shop right now.You can pre-order it from major retailers online,or wait to be released so you can get it from Ebay for less.

In the Lynch (one) documentary you can see a short clip of him during the recording of Ghost of Love. In a reflection in a window in the recording studio, we clearly sees that he wears the cowboy hat. Didn't notice it before the second time I watched the doc.

After listening to both songs from the Single during the last days I can frankly say that I'd really like to hear a full album of David Lynch songs in the near future.

as dugpa said, a david solo album is coming (and maybe gigs too):
[...]
Q: What stage is the album in?

A
: There are songs written. I'd say there are three songs ready to go, and about four or five in the works. We're finding a groove, and it's going along, yeah.

Q: The expectation after an album release would be live shows.

A: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We've talked about that. I can play things once. The problem is playing them twice. [laughs] We'd have to get a band together and work stuff out. It's conceivable, but there's a lot of work to be done before the road show.

Thanks for posting the link to the full interview Kelvah. I'm really looking forward to the album and if he'll be able to do some concerts hopefully he'll also come over here to Europe. By the way would someone please change the names on the main site because it wasn't me who provided the link it was Kelvah. I guess somebody accidentally mixed the names up.

Sorry, I expect loads of people have asked this before, but... does anyone know the lyrics to Ghost Of Love?

(BTW, all these questions I'm asking at the moment are for a dissertation I'm doing about Lynch music, in case you're wondering. Nope, didn't think you were.)

Filmmaker David Lynch pursues 'it feels right' moments as he launches
singing career

By Adam McKibbin | Special to The Morning Call
March 9, 2008

Filmmaker David Lynch is a renowned experimenter, not just in the
medium of film, but also with paint, comics and even furniture.
Musically, he's delved deep into meditative sounds and abstract sonic
experimentation, leading to albums with composers like his longtime
collaborator, Angelo Badalamenti.

But throughout the years, one experiment Lynch never tried was plunking
down in front of the microphone himself. 'I always was super
embarrassed to sing,' he says. But that changed on 'Ghost of Love,'
a hauntingly poignant track that first appeared on the 'Inland
Empire' soundtrack and is now available as a single -- and a precursor
to a full blues-inspired album, with Lynch sitting in the troubadour
seat the whole time.

The famed director and new singer sat down with Metromix at his studio
in the Hollywood Hills to discuss his upcoming album, his high school
marching band and the reasons why Radiohead may inadvertently increase
homelessness in L.A.

Q: Was 'Ghosts of Love' always connected somehow to 'Inland Empire'?

A: No. It was the first song where I sang high. Not high on drugs.
[laughs]. With a high voice.

Q: The cover for the single is pretty rock 'n' roll -- you've got the
cigarette and the sunglasses. There's a clip on YouTube of you singing
with a big cowboy hat. I'm wondering whether there's a persona at work.

A: There has to be a persona, otherwise I couldn't do it. It seems like
the cowboy hat and the sunglasses help a lot.

Q: You've talked in the past about how an audience's experience of a
film can be hurt by knowing too much personal stuff about the
filmmakers. Do you feel the same holds true for music?

A: I think the whole thing is the purity of the experience. You don't
want to do anything to hurt people's experience of going into another
world. And so that should be protected.

Q: What stage is the album in?

A: There are songs written. I'd say there are three songs ready to go,
and about four or five in the works. We're finding a groove, and it's
going along, yeah.

Q: The expectation after an album release would be live shows.

A: Yeah, yeah, yeah. We've talked about that. I can play things once.
The problem is playing them twice. [laughs] We'd have to get a band
together and work stuff out. It's conceivable, but there's a lot of
work to be done before the road show.

Q: Some songwriters say that songs can arrive at any time, and others
will say that they really have to be in the right mindset. What's the
process like for you?

A: Well, how it's working now is that there are chords that are picked.
Dean [Hurley, Lynch's engineer] will program these chords into my
guitar, and then we get a drumbeat going. The tempo and the type of the
beat, the sound of the guitar and those chord progressions -- that
conjures a mood and makes you play a certain way. Dean will put on a
bass track and we'll throw out stuff and rearrange some stuff. And
then, listening to it, lyrics will come.

Q: And when you finish, is there a 'Boom! Voila!' moment?

A: Yeah, same with everything. Painting, films, music -- there's a
moment when you say, 'It's done, it feels right.' There are some
times when you go and listen to something really objectively later and
you say, 'Oh, you know, I could maybe tweak that a little bit.' But
mostly it feels correct.

Q: How far back can you trace the roots of your love for music? Was
there a parental inspiration?

A: Well, it was a little bit [due to] my parents, who loved music. My
dad played the violin, and he played the tuba and piano. He liked to
sing. I played trumpet and I loved playing trumpet -- until I went to
high school, where they forced all the orchestra people to join the
marching band, which is when I quit. There went the trumpet. But I
really think I have a love of sound, and experimenting with sound. It
seems to go hand in hand with picture in the world of cinema.

Q: There's a debate now -- heightened by the Radiohead release last
year -- about whether people should become accustomed to getting their
music or their art for free.

A: I just saw this thing on TV where in some country -- I think it's an
African country -- they have taken to this idea that CDs are
advertisements for people to come to their shows. They have these big
shows where bands play to huge crowds. The CD is just an advertisement
-- and that's the way it's going more and more here. They're way ahead
of us. They never shot film because they couldn't afford film, so
they've been into digital video forever, and they're making hundreds of
films. Just like now a theatrical release is sort of an advertisement
for the DVD. It's just going that way.

The problem with piracy and getting stuff for free is that pretty soon
you can't afford to make anything or live anywhere. So there will just
be that many more homeless people. Even in L.A., it gets chilly or
rainy, like it is today. So you imagine, you're with your cardboard box
in the rain and you're hungry, and you're just not going to be making
those albums anymore, you know what I mean? You're going to try to get
your next meal. And your tastes will probably change. Cheap wine will
start to be just as good. [laughs] You're just looking for some cheap
wine and a sandwich.

Any idea on when to expect the first album? Was David implying soon or saying he was so busy with other stuff that it would be a while?

No idea. Absurda is being really tight lipped with their upcoming releases. I'm sure we'll hear about something sooner or later.
