David Lynch is continuing the nightmare he started on this year's The Big Dream LP with a new 12-inch single. Due November 12 via Sacred Bones, the fast-approaching record features "Bad the John Boy," an eerie one-off that was recorded around the same time as the filmmaker's second studio album but meant for a separate project. Producer Dean Hurley said in a statement, "It wasn't really recorded with the LP in mind, but it was done around the end of last year when the bulk of the album was being made. It was earmarked for something else entirely, but that thing didn't happen in a way that required the song... so up until now, it was 'a song with no home.'"

Now, Lynch has made the creepy mood piece available for streaming. Fans of grim electronic pulse, broken syntax poetry, and cyborg spoken-word won't be disappointed. Listen to Lynch's latest below, and pre-order the 12-inch — which features a Venetian Snares remix of "The Big Dream" — through Sacred Bones.
