♪♫ David Lynch: Pop star?
David Lynch, the mysterious auteur of baffling, mind-melding movies, has always left viewers baffled by his plot twists and surreal dream takes. His latest project is no exception. Only rather than a "Twin Peaks" redux, Lynch has entered into the uncharted territory (at least for him) of singing. The director has released two songs on iTunes today of haunting electro-pop. On the first, his voice enhanced by all sorts of robotic diffusions, he sings a high-pitched plea to "have a good day today." It's odd, confusing and rather addicting.
"A still photo can be mighty powerful, a film can be mighty powerful. The world you can make in a film is incredible. Music is something that goes inside a person and it does something and it can really thrill the soul. It's another magical medium," Lynch told the Guardian.
