Sacred Bones Records / US / 2022 / 7" Purple Big Bang
January 20, 2020 saw the surprise release of David Lynch’s short ‘What did Jack Do?’ on Netflix. If you watched the grainy, police procedural over the last few days, you most likely found yourself saying aloud ‘who is Jack Cruz and how can I get more of his music?’ Now, just in time for the Grammys, Sacred Bones is announcing the release of the short’s featured original song ‘True Love’s Flame’ by the primate star crooner of yesteryear; Jack Cruz. Not much is known about Cruz’s career prior to his involvement with Lynch, but fortunately, we have not just one song, but two: ’Dancin’ in the World of Love’ is the B-side to the short’s single…uncovered recently and an excellent example of Cruz’s emotional prowess and magical, gold-dipped vocal cords. Both songs were written by Lynch and Dean Hurley and are available for pre-order in both black and clear vinyl 45s with artwork carefully crafted by Lynch himself.
