Even by his own standards 'Good Day Today' is a startling composition. Featuring the David Lynch himself on vocals, this finely crafted piece of electronic music would take pride of place in the discographies of even the most revered dance music producers. Indeed when the track was first aired by Jason Bentley, on his hugely influential KCRW radio station in Los Angeles, it was mistakenly credited to Underworld, causing a debate over the artist's identity to rage on the Underworld website and message boards.

Arguably the most renowned avant-garde film director and visual artist of his time, David Lynch has a history of working with a host of musical luminaries. While making Blue Velvet, he needed a certain type of song for an important scene so Lynch and his film composer Angelo Badalamenti wrote the song  'Mysteries of Love' to be sung by Julee Cruise. This led to the album 'Floating Into The Night', whose track 'Falling' was the theme music for Twin Peaks, and won a Grammy for best pop instrumental.

In 2008, having composed small sections for his other films and his musical ambitions growing, he became the eponymous creator of a record label David Lynch MC.

More recently, Lynch collaborated with Sparklehorse and Danger Mouse on the album Dark Night of the Soul. For this project Lynch designed a 100 page booklet to accompany the album, which was initially delivered - after disputes with the record company - in the form in a blank CD-R with fans instructed to "use as you will".

"In all my films, I have always been very involved with all that one hears," says Lynch. "The creation of this record was a natural extension of my love of sound and music."
