Filmmaker turned experimental musician David Lynch has shared the official first single off his forthcoming sophomore album The Big Dream. The new track, titled “Star Dream Girl,” is currently available to purchase as a double A-side digital single with “Are You Sure.”

In a press release Lynch says the inspiration for the song derived from his past: “After I moved away from Boise, Idaho, I came back in the summer of ’61. Around that time, Jerry Lee Lewis was supposed to play at this big club in the Sagebrush Desert — I think it was called the Miramar. Back then, these big events would catch people’s imaginations. They would take their motorcycles or hot rods to these remote places to see some star. So we all drove out to this place, but Jerry never showed up and people were really pissed off. ‘Star Dream Girl’ has that same kind of charisma. People can’t wait to see her and come from miles around. The lyrics came to me all at once, but there was no music yet. Then one night, Dean (Hurley) was playing guitar in the studio and I was egging him on when he caught a wave like the surfers out in Hawaii. He was in the tunnel man&hellipand the lyrics married with that ride.”
