Julee Cruise, Twin Peaks’ Ethereal Chanteuse, Dies at 65

Julee Cruise, the dreamy singer best known for her work with director David Lynch, is reported to have passed away. The singer’s husband confirmed the news on Facebook, writing: “I played her” [the B-52s’s] ‘Roam’ during her transition. Now she will roam forever.” She was 65 years old.

Cruise’s echoey, ethereal vocals were an essential part of what made Twin Peaks such a success when it debuted in 1990. Cruise was featured on three songs on the official soundtrack album and also appeared in two episodes. She can also be seen in the movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and 2017 Twin Peaks: the return

Iowa-born Cruise originally studied horn and then met Lynch’s composer Angelo Badalamenti when the two worked at an off-Broadway theater company in New York’s East Village. The first collaboration between the three was the song ‘Mysteries of Love’, which was heard during the closing scenes of the 1985 film. Blue velvet

Badalamenti then teamed up with Cruise to compose the music for her first album, 1989’s Floating In The Night. Lynch wrote the lyrics. Some of these songs were later included in Twin Peaksincluding an instrumental version of “Falling,” which, renamed “Twin Peaks Theme,” won Badalamenti a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance.

In 1990 Cruise, Lynch and Badalamenti released Industrial Symphony No. 1a direct-to-video film of a theatrical concert/performance piece given at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Laura Dern and Nicholas Cagewho were shooting Wild at heart with Lynch at the time, appear in a prologue, as their characters from that movie. (Maybe. It’s Lynch, so you never know.) Take a look and let this avant-garde early ’90s aesthetic wash over you.
