David Lynch announces new album

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

The album is the 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".

Elaborating 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.

'The Big Dream'
'Star Dream Girl'
'Last Call'
