On October 7th, dream pop singer Chrysta Bell will release a new EP titled Somewhere in the Nowhere. The project was written and produced by longtime collaborator David Lynch. The EP is previewed today with “Beat the Beat”, which can be heard up above.
The two musicians’ creative relationship goes back many years. Lynch co-wrote and produced Bell’s debut album, 2011’s This Train; she appeared on Lynch’s 2007 Inland Empire OST and performed at a recent benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation. Bell is also expected to make a cameo in Lynch’s star-studded 2017 Twin Peaks reboot.
“The first time I saw her perform, I thought she was like an alien,” Lynch said of Bell in a press release. “The most beautiful alien ever.” He also described her as “not only a killer performer, she also has a great intuitive ability to catch a mood and find a melody that’s really spectacular.”
In addition to Somewhere in the Nowhere, Bell is finishing up a new full-length album. Due out next year, it counts Adrian Utley of Portishead and Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley as guests.
