David Lynch has unveiled a track from his second record, The Big Dream, released on 15th July.

'Star Dream Girl' has a gritty, yet cinematic tone created in the heavier riffs, shaking beat and Lynch's spoken words about a mysterious woman: "Every night they come to dream of her." It's very different to his recent collaboration with Lykki Li, 'I'm Waiting Here'. The follow up to Lynch’s 2011 solo debut, Crazy Clown Time, will also feature a Bob Dylan cover.

Lynch said of 'Star Dream Girl':

"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…and the lyrics married with that ride."
