Lou Reed & Metallica preview
(hennemusic) Strap yourself in – the Lou Reed and Metallica album, "Lulu," is now available for streaming on the group’s website.
The 10-track collaboration between the artists runs almost 90-minutes in length (!), ending with the 20-minute "Junior Dad."
The project is based on songs for a theatrical production of Frank Wedekind’s classic femme fatale "Lulu" plays. Reed rewrote the concepts of the plays – 1895’s "Earth Spirit" and 1904’s "Pandora’s Box" – from the perspective of Lulu herself.
The album was co-produced by Reed, Metallica, Hal Willner and Greg Fidelman, who also mixed the record.
