I’ve paid tribute to Julee Cruise’s “Falling” and I’d like you to be the first one to hear it.
On Julee Cruise‘s birthday, recording artist, producer and fellow Twin Peaks junkie I Am Snow Angel wanted to share her tribute to the original vocal version of the Twin Peaks theme exclusively with the readers of Welcome to Twin Peaks. The New York-based artist, whose real name is Julie Kathryn, has always been a David Lynch fan but people have even compared her to Julee Cruise, or said that some of her work has a Lynchian vibe. The nearing return of the show inspired her to take it one step further.
In the last few years, I’ve re-visited Twin Peaks and have felt so at home in that weird, dreamy, mysterious world. When I heard the series was resuming, I was inspired to create my own tribute. I started singing the theme song and it immediately felt like something I was meant to perform and put my own spin on. I produced it in my own style, but I also stayed true to the essential aspects of the song, including the original key.
