David Lynch and Chrystabell Collaborate on New Album, ‘Cellophane Memories’

The record also makes use of recordings by the late Angelo Badalamenti

David Lynch has teamed up with longtime collaborator Chrystabell for a new album, titled Cellophane Memories.

Spanning 10 tracks, the record is the latest in a line of projects involving the pair, with Chrystabell having worked on the soundtrack for Lynch’s 2006 film Inland Empire and played the role of Tammy Preston in his series Twin Peaks: The Return. Lynch also produced her 2011 debut album, This Train, and 2017 EP Somewhere In The Nowhere.

Speaking about Cellophane Memories, which additionally features strings by the late Angelo Badalamenti, Chrystabell said in a statement that the album contained “many doors that are left open to wonder, wander and get turned around in”. She added: “It’s like mood music, not that it creates mood, but more that it reflects your own.”

To mark the record’s announcement, the duo have shared a Lynch-directed video for lead track ‘Sublime Eternal Love’, which you can watch below.

Sacred Bones will release Cellophane Memories on August 2, 2024.
