David Lynch Directs Promo Video for Ariana Delawari Album
Any glimpse of new material from David Lynch is incredibly exciting to me, so when I saw that he had directed a promo video for Ariana Delawari's upcoming album Lion of Panjshir, I was pretty thrilled.
It goes without saying that like any other David Lynch production, this is suitably… well, Lynchian. And I hope know you all know what I mean when I say that. There's a serious Twin Peaks vibe going on here. Here's what Lynch himself has to say about the album:
ARIANA WRITES GREAT SONGS – THEY ARE FILLED WITH FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS FROM HER LIFE – HER LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD AND LIFE IN AFGHANISTAN WHERE HER ROOTS ARE – ANCIENT AND MODERN FLOW TOGETHER HERE – THIS MIXTURE OF CULTURES AND HER MELODIES AND LYRICS CONJURE A GREAT UNIQUE FEELING IN PEOPLE – PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED AND EMOTIONALLY MOVED BY THIS MUSIC — ARIANA'S GOT SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT AND SHE DOES IT REAL WELL – IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DEBUT ALBUM SHE'S MADE.Though he may not have a career ahead of him as a pitch man, it's hard to say no to one of the greatest American artists of all time. He's certainly convinced me.
