Song inspired by ‘Twin Peaks’ location visit
Unshakeably peculiar but adorable duo The Lovely Eggs return on October 26th with a brand new single especially for Hallowe’en. Tapping into their long-running obsession with David Lynch’s cult TV show ‘Twin Peaks’, ‘Haunt Me Out’ was inspired by a visit to Lynch’s original locations for the series and later recorded at Olive Juice studio in Manhattan’s Lower East Side with antifolk kingpin Major Matt Mason (Kimya Dawson, Jeffrey Lewis). It’s their first new material since the June release of their debut album If You Were Fruit [review] through Cherryade Records.
Limited to just 100 CD copies (and downloads of course), the two B-sides are ‘It’s Spooky’, a cover of the title track to Daniel Johnston and Jad Fair’s 2001 album, and ‘Rappin In Plastic’, a rant in which Lovely Egg Holly Ross tries to remember the names of all the ‘Twin Peaks’ characters. And if that’s not enough of a tie-in for Lynch fans, each CD is printed up to look like one of ‘Twin Peaks’ character Agent Cooper’s favourite flavour doughnuts and comes with a collectible freebie in the shape of a Laura Palmer half-heart necklace. Pre-order your numbered limited edition package here.
