• Director David Lynch and band Interpol team up for NFT series

  • This isn’t the first time legendary director David Lynch has worked with the band Interpol; in 2010, Lynch’s animated short “I Touch a Red Button Man” used the band Interpol’s song “Lights” as its soundtrack. The following year, the band Interpol used that short film as the visual for their Coachella performance. And now, ten years later, they’re both revisiting the work and turning it into an eight-part NFT.

    HIFI Labs has adapted the work into the NFT realm, dividing it into seven pieces, with an additional piece that will be mixed with user-generated content. Through this site, they will be auctioned on the Superrare Ethereum marketplace. These pieces are 1/1 versions. This is the first piece. They all feature an updated version of the “Lights” song. They are described as follows.

    “The new versions feature a streamlined version of the song, both by design and as a result of the band members – Banks, Daniel Kessler and Sam Fogarino – being separated for much of the epidemic.”

    To paint a clearer picture, Banksy said in an official statement from the band.

    “The marriage of music and visuals is an old tradition, and Lynch is a musician in his own right and has a love of music, so it’s a pretty organic way for artists from two different media to come together. From our point of view, we’re both crazy about Lynch, so it’s amazing to see our work paired with his.”

    It seems that the band Interpol is the force behind Lynch’s new and improved adventures in the NFT space. However, David Lynch tweeted about it. So, he knows and supports the project.
