Academy Award-nominated filmmaker David Lynch and the rockband Interpol have teamed up to design eight unique NFTs available for fans.
A Collaboration That Takes Us Back A Decade In Time
At the 2011 Coachella Festival, Interpol debuted their dynamic collaboration with filmmaker David Lynch. What was it? An overlay of Lynch’s frantic short film “I Touch A Red Button Man” with the group’s ferocious 2010 single “Lights.” The result, a captivating balance of unnerving and sublime, was a singular experience for the lucky few in attendance.
Now, fans have the chance to own an exclusive piece of this work; recorded specifically for a limited series of eight NFTs. The project takes on a new shape for the present day as Interpol enlists the teams at HIFI Labs to conceptualize and build radical new tools for artist development.
“The new performances are stripped-down renditions featuring [Interpol lead guitarist] Daniel Kessler on piano,” says frontman Paul Banks. In fact, these more acoustic takes may be Interpol at their most poignant; digging deep to take each clip to new artistic heights.

Lucky Fans Will be Able to Take Home the NFTs
Eager to include the fans in unique ways, Lynch X Interpol also offers opportunities for collaboration. Banks continues, “In the spirit of fandom; we are glad to reveal that one of the eight NFTs will go to fans—for free.” Fans will be able to add their personal creative touch to one of the NFTs in the 3D gallery. One lucky participant will take home the collaborative NFT.
HIFI Labs conceptualized and made possible the NFT project. Here, industry professionals develop new ways for artists to stay on the cutting edge of music and technology trends. “Artists usually have great vision, but oftentimes, I don’t think they know how many options are available to them,” says CEO Joe Barham. HIFI Labs’ VFX artist Adam Graetz helped to unite the unique creations by Lynch and Interpol, all available via SuperRare.
