The Man with the Electro-Pop Debut
From Pitchfork. I hope Lynch's long-time pal Trent Reznor had some input on the album. Also Glad Karen O is recording again. We're about due for another Yeah Yeah Yeahs record.

We've been hearing about it for a long time, and now it's finally here: David Lynch's solo album of electronic pop. Here's the first thing you need to know about this album: It's calledCrazy Clown Time. And here's the second thing: It features guest vocals from Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader Karen O on a song called "Pinky's Dream". Those are two very good reasons to get excited.
Crazy Clown Time arrives November 8 from Sunday Best Recordings. (In the U.S., it will be co-released by PIAS America.) Lynch wrote, produced, and performed the entire thing with help from engineer Dean Hurley, who also plays guitar and drums on several songs.
Below, listen to the early single "Good Day Today" and check out the album's tracklist. Read our interview with Lynch about his music here.
