Lulu, the album featuring Metallica and rock legend Lou Reed, is due out in North America on
November 1st. Rolling Stone writer David Fricke’s take on the new album was, “A raging union of [Lou Reed's] 1973 noir classic, Berlin and Metallica's '86 crusher, Master Of Puppets. Wow!
All songs were penned by Lou with extensive arrangements by Metallica. Drummer Lars Ulrich says of the collaboration, “I don't think we've ever felt this free. There's nothing that's totally outside of the boundary for us, nothing that feels like, ‘Oh, what happens if we go there?'”
