Good Day Today / I Know
Released: 28 January 2011
Responsible for such iconic films as Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive, Blue Velvet and the cult TV series Twin Peaks, film maker and visual artist David Lynch is one of the most important directors of the modern era. Now aged 64, the man whose name has become a byword for the unorthodox and avant-garde has launched a new chapter in his career releasing an electronic single, Good Day Today / I Know, through leading UK independent Sunday Best Recordings.
Even by his own standards Good Day Today is a startling composition. Featuring the legend 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.
Following this first play, Bentley put the record into the hands of Sunday Best Recordings director Ben Turner at the International Music Summit in Ibiza. Turner in turn played the record to label figurehead Rob da Bank and realising they had something special on their hands, the pair quickly snapped up the worldwide rights to the release.
Good Day Today will be available as a digital download exclusively through iTunes, along with its blues and beat-ridden psychedelic double A-side I Know, as of Monday November 29. Sunday Best have commissioned a stellar set of remixes of the single for full release in January, complete with artwork and prints from the equally as legendary Vaughan Oliver – responsible for some of the greatest record sleeves of all time – think Pixies, Cocteau Twins and 4AD.
