Last year’s surreal, star-studded musical tribute to David Lynch will be released as a double album, The Music of David Lynch, featuring performances from Karen O, the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd, Duran Duran, Sky Ferreira, Moby and more, Pitchfork reports.

The one-night only concert/fundraiser for the David Lynch Foundation featured a variety of musicians tackling songs from and inspired by Lynch’s projects. The filmmaker’s longtime composer, Angelo Badalamenti, even recreated “Laura Palmer’s Theme” and “Dance of the Dream Man” from Twin Peaks, which will open the album’s first and second LPs, respectively.

Other performances from The Music of David Lynch include Ferreira’s version of “Blue Velvet” — the Bobby Vinton tune made famous in Lynch’s 1986 film of the same name — Lykke Li’s performance of “Wicked Game” (Wild at Heart) and Rebekah Del Rio’s recreation of her enchanting “Llorando” from Mulholland Drive.

Elsewhere, Coyne and Drozd mixed sections of the Eraserhead score with elements from The Elephant Man, while O performed “Pinky’s Dream,” her collaboration with Lynch from his 2011 LP, Crazy Clown Time. Duran Duran — whose 2011 concert film Lynch, strangely enough, directed — closed out the concert with their hits “The Chauffeur,” “Ordinary World” and “Hungry Like the Wolf” (just “The Chauffeur,” however, will appear on the album).

The Music of David Lynch arrives April 15th via Communion. A complete track list is available below.
