David Lynch & Lykke Li — I’m Waiting Here

I’m Waiting Here is the lead single from David Lynch’s 2013 album, The Big Dream, and features the singer-songwriter Lykke Li. Commonwealth Projects worked with Lykke Li to conceive, film, and edit the song’s music video. Inspired by the songs ethereal sound and doleful lyrics, the video consists of a single, meandering shot through an uninhabited stretch of desert. The film varies in pace to match the sullen quality of the song and captures the sense of searching found in the lyrics by starting the drive in daylight and concluding it in darkness at an unknown location. Moreover, the altered color treatment creates a subtle sense of removal and otherworldliness.
