US indie rock band Interpol and filmmaker David Lynch have announced the drop of a limited series of eight non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The NFTs are based upon Interpol’s performance at the 2011 Coachella Festival, when they combined a rendition of their 2010 single Lights with Lynch's short animated film I Touch A Red Button Man.

With the 2011 show as a starting point, the project then took on a new shape as Interpol enlisted the team at HIFI Labs to conceptualise and build radical new tools for fan engagement. In the resulting Lynch X Interpol NFT project, newly recorded versions of Lights join Lynch’s engrossing animations to commemorate and add new power to their famed original effort.

“In the spirit of fandom, we are glad to reveal that one of the eight NFTs will go to fans, for free,” said frontman Paul Banks.

Fans will be able to add their personal creative touch to one of the NFTs in the 3D gallery, and one lucky participant will take home the collaborative NFT that results from their efforts.

The NFT project

The NFT project was conceptualised with and created by HIFI Labs, an agency which is developing new ways for artists to stay on the cutting edge of music and technology trends.

HIFI Labs’ VFX artist Adam Graetz helped to unite Lynch and Interpol’s creations, while the HIFI Labs development team, led by Piérre Reimertz, created the 3D images with ”metaverse ideation support“ from Infinite Reality.

“What makes us so excited about this release is it memorialises the collaboration between David Lynch and Interpol,” said Jack Spallone, Head of Crypto & Product at HIFI Labs.

“Using Ethereum, these NFTs can live in eternity as artefacts of cinematic and musical history. Just as David Lynch’s career helped push the boundaries of film and even fiction, it is now extending into the permanent universe of blockchain,” he continued.

Banks added: “Humbly, we believe that as digital artefacts go, these are worthy of preservation in the infinite digital realm.”
