Metallica, Lou Reed Release Details For Joint Album ‘LuLu’

More details have been revealed regarding the musical collaboration project between Metallica and Lou Reed about their upcoming album. In a statement released on their website, it was revealed that the record will be titled Lulu and is scheduled for a November 1 release in North America. The title, and indeed the album itself, is inspired by two early 19th century plays by German expressionist writer Frank Wededkind. “Earth Spirit” and “Pandora’s Box” tell the tale of a “young abused dancer’s life and relationships,” according to the statement.

The combo, who appear to have dubbed themselves “Loutallica,” have also released titles for three of the ten tracks that will feature on LuLu. They are “Junior Dad,” “Mistress Dread,” and “Pumping Blood.”
