Really, you don't need to know much more than that the song is called "Crazy Clown Time" and that it is the second song to emerge from David Lynch's upcoming solo record of the same name. And rest assured, he does that title justice, chirping smirkingly innocent small town frolics over warped guitar, buried chatter and sex moans. Sample lyrics: "Danny poured the beer all over Sally (moan)/But he screamed so loud he spit/We all ran around the back yard (moan, moan)/It was crazy clown time. Crazy clooown tiiiime/It was crazy clown time/Crazy cloown tiime/It was crazy clown time/It was real fun." Listen below, as long as it's still light outside and there are other people around.
Crazy Clown Time comes out on November 8th. It was written, produced and recorded by Lynch and engineered by Dean Hurley. Karen O will appear on at least one track, "Pinky's Dream." And in retrospect, that headline might be a bit hasty. This is the first time Lynch has embarked on a musical project of his own, though he's been collaborating with other musicians for years.
"Crazy Clown Time" follows "Good Day Today," which came out in August. Here's the full tracklist:
01 Pinky's Dream 02 Good Day Today 03 So Glad 04 Noah's Ark 05 Football Game 06 I Know 07 Strange and Unproductive Thinking 08 The Night Bell With Lightning 09 Stone's Gone Up 10 Crazy Clown Time 11 These Are My Friends 12 Speed Roadster 13 Movin' On 14 She Rise Up
