He waited until he was in his 60s, but famed American filmmaker David Lynch celebrated Thanksgiving by preparing for the official release of his first single as a solo artist (via TwentyFourBit). British imprint Sunday Best released Good Day Today — plus its B-side, I know — on iTunes today, with a physical release to follow on January 31st. What’s more, Lynch says the ultimate goal is to release a full-length album of original music.
When asked about the electro-pop feel of Good Day, Lynch told The Guardian that he loves electricity, so it sort of stands to reason that I would like electronics, and while his explanation is a bit redundant, he did end up expounding on his writing process a bit more clearly. Lynch said that he built himself a custom studio to allow him to explore sound, and that the song came out of nowhere. “I was just sitting and these notes came, he said, then I went down and started working with Dean [Hurley, his engineer] and then these few notes, ‘I want to have a good day, today’ came and the song was built around that.”
The song is much brighter than his vocal contribution to Dark Night of the Soul and even samples some gunshot sounds. Its artwork is pictured in the thumbnail and the cut is available for your listening pleasure below. If you cant wait for the deluxe double vinyl or CD version of the songs, then you can head to iTunes and download the tracks right now.
