Listen: David Lynch’s new single, “Bad the John Boy”


On November 12th, obscure genius and legendary filmmaker David Lynch will return with a new limited edition 12-inch via Sacred Bones. “Bad the John Boy” was recorded during the same sessions for Lynch’s sophomore album, The Big Dream, but was never intended for the LP. Just one listen to the track should offer a resoundingly clear explanation: whereas Big Dream was comprised of light and dark contrast and emotional peaks and valleys, “Bad the John Boy” is full-on Lynch-ian peculiarity, a bizarre pop song crooned by a vocodered alien over the menacing rumble of drums and bass. Check it out below.

“Bad the John Boy” is backed by a Venetian Snares remix of “The Big Dream”. Pre-order your copy here.
