For those who felt like there wasn’t enough music from composer Angelo Badalamenti in Twin Peaks: The Return, you’ll be very pleased to know that he and surreal mastermind David Lynch have been working together on Thought Gang, a twisted and phantasmagoric jazz project that paired the two together. However, this project isn’t new. In fact, its inception goes back to the days between the show’s second season and the feature film Fire Walk With Me, the latter of which bore two of their tracks, “A Real Indication” and “The Black Dog Runs at Night”. Now, nearly three decades later, their unreleased full-length album is going to see the light of day.
On November 2, Sacred Bones Records will release Thought Gang, the self-titled feature length album from Badalamenti and Lynch, and they’ve released the first single in the form of “Woodcutters From Fiery Ships”, which you can listen to below.
“It’s sort of like jet-fueled jazz in a weird way…but it’s all based on stories,” says Lynch, talking about Thought Gang. “It’s Modern Music.”
If you’ve been seeking something odd, alluring, and almost indescribable, Thought Gang, may very well be precisely what you need. Pre-orders are open via Sacred Bones’ website.
