Movie director turned musician David Lynch, has premiered the self-directed video for his track, ‘Crazy Clown Time’. Scroll down to watch it.
The typically off-kilter and disturbing seven minute long video features two topless women, a glamorous blonde in a red satin bra top and a man howling at the skies while another man sets his mohawk hairdo on fire. Lynch, who makes a number of cameos in the video, has said that the backdrop to the promo clip is “intense psychotic backyard craziness, fueled by beer”.
Speaking about his debut album, also called ‘Crazy Clown Time’, which was released last year, David Lynch said that there was “a lot of fear involved” in its making. Lynch, the mastermind behind films such as Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive, told The Guardian that making his own LP had forced him to “overcome a lot of fear and embarrassment”.
The director said of his music career: “You might get someone else, an actor, to play a role. But then there are some roles where you think: ‘I want to be that person. I want to go into that world’. So I wanted to try.” He then went on to add: “I wanted to see whether I could nail it, assuming I could overcome a lot of fear and embarrassment and find a safe place to work. But yes, there’s a lot of fear involved. It’s very fearful.”
Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O guested on the ‘Crazy Clown Time’ album, on a track called ‘Pinky’s Dream’.
A Super Deluxe Edition of ‘Crazy Clown Time’ was released earlier this year by Sunday Best Recordings
