David Lynch released his debut solo album Crazy Clown Time in November 2011. This morning, he released the David Lynch-directed, seven-minute music video of the the title track off that album. (It must be a good day to release moving pictures set to music on YouTube channels that are part of the online video sharing site’s $100 million Originals initiative.)
The video premiered on YouTube under the banner of Noisey, Vice Magazine’s video-driven music discovery platform, which has been the premiere destination for other notable music videos and does its best to document “the most talented emerging musicians…bands and music scenes” from around the world. The action in the video follows the narrative in Lynch’s lyrics (which he sings in an airy alto bordering on being a bad impression of Miss Piggy, not that there’s anything wrong with that), which basically depicts the aftermath of a party at the Moontower as if it were that cursed video from The Ring.
Crazy Clown Time is no Lynchian coffee commercial, but if you ever were one to wonder who killed Laura Palmer and you’re not currently at work (the vid is on the NSFW side), it’s worth a watch:
