David Lynch & Lykke Li “I’m Waiting Here”
Director David Lynch has two albums under his belt, which might come as a surprise for those who don’t follow his career. Music has always been an important component of his films, and so it was natural when he started translating the languid, smokey sound of his films into studio albums. His 2013 sophomore album The Big Dream features this captivating lead single featuring musician Lykke Li. The song calls back to the lofty sound of Twin Peaks, whose soundtrack he produced with singer Julee Cruise, while also harnessing a bluesy soul that’s made even more compelling with Lykke Li’s whisper-soft voice. As for the video? Typical Lynch: a winding road to nowhere. Hop in.
