Last year, Karen O, Wayne Coyne, Jim James and more gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary of David Lynch’s eponymous nonprofit during a benefit concert at the Ace Hotel in L.A. Now, some of the evening’s performances will be documented in the forthcoming The Music of David Lynch tribute album.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Flaming Lips and My Morning Jacket leaders are only a handful of the artists who tackled cuts from the iconic filmmaker’s movie and television scores and discography for the David Lynch Foundation event. Karen O delivered “Pinky’s Dream” from Lynch’s 2011 album Crazy Clown Time. Coyne and his Flaming Lips bandmate Steven Drozd teamed up on a remix of Lynch’s Eraserhead and The Elephant Man scores. James covered “Sycamore Trees” from Lynch’s cult favorite and soon-to-be resurrected Twin Peaks series. Lynch’s longtime musical collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, Duran Duran, Sky Ferreira, Lykke Li, Moby, Tennis and Twin Peaks (the band) also appear on the double-LP. Take a look at the full track list and album cover below.

The Music of David Lynch will land in stores on April 15 via Communion. Lynch most recently released his album, The Big Dream, in 2013. He’s currently working on a new comeback season of Twin Peaks that’s expected to premiere sometime this year.
