Rob da Bank’s record company Sunday Best Recordings has announced a deal with movie making icon David Lynch which will see the indie label release the director’s first efforts at music production, complete with is own vocals, a single release featuring two tracks, ‘Good Day Today’ and ‘I Know’.
When the former first appeared on a white label and was played on LA radio station KCRW by Jason Bentley it was initially assumed it was a new release from Underworld, leading to much speculation on that outfit’s website as to who had actually made the track. Having discovered its real creator, Bentley passed the track to da Bank’s manager Ben Turner at this year’s International Music Summit in Ibiza, who in turn passed it on to the Sunday Best chief.
Says the label owner and Radio 1 DJ: “If I hadn’t just pinched myself I’d swear I was dreaming that we’re actually putting out a record by David Lynch. It proves that not only is he a master director responsible for many of my favourite films but he’s also a talented producer with an innate sense of how powerful music is and can be. I can’t wait to unleash this fantastic record on the world”.
Lynch himself told CMU: “I am very happy to be with Sunday Best with the songs ‘Good Day Today’ and ‘I Know’. This feels like a good partnership and I’m looking forward to everyone having a good day today. In all my films, I have always been very involved with all that one hears. The creation of this record was a natural extension of my love of sound and music”.
Sunday Best will make the track available worldwide exclusively via iTunes from today.
