METALLICA & LOU REED: FULL TRACK ONLINE!

A joint venture, entitled Lulu, born from the collaboration of Lou Reed (The Velvet Underground) and Metallica is about to be unleashed – in fact a brand new full-length track has been uploaded and can be heard HERE.

 

James Hetfield commented: “We were very interested in working with Lou, I had these giant question marks: What’s it going to be like? What’s going to happen? So it was great when he sent us the lyrics for the ‘Lulu’ body of work. It was something we could sink our teeth into. I could take off my singer and lyricist hat and concentrate on the music part. These were very potent lyrics, with a soundscape behind them for atmosphere. Lars and I sat there with an acoustic and let this blank canvas take us where it needed to go. It was a great gift, to be asked to stamp ‘Tallica on it. And that’s what we did.”

 

Kirk Hammer added:
“It’s definitely not a Metallica album, or a Lou Reed album, it’s something else. It’s a new animal, a hybrid.”

 

Lou Reid himself seems extremely enthusiastic about the project:

“We had to bring ‘Lulu’ to life in a sophisticated way, using rock, and the hardest power rock you could come up with would have to be Metallica. They live on that planet. We played together, and I knew it: dream come true. This is the best thing I ever did. And I did it with the best group I could possibly find. By definition, everybody involved was honest. This has come into the world pure. We pushed as far as we possibly could within the realms of reality.”
