Lou Reed & Metallica Reveal ‘Lulu’ Cover Art
Lou Reed & Metallica have released the cover art for their upcoming collaborative album 'Lulu.' They've also revealed two more song titles from the record, bringing us halfway to knowing the names of all ten of its tracks.
When 'Lulu' greets you on Nov. 1 at your favorite record store or on-line retailer, she will be in the form of an armless mannequin torso, with heavy facial makeup.
The album's title is scrawled across the front in blood, and neither Metallica's nor Reed's name seem to appear on the cover. It's pretty artistic, and just slightly creepy enough to satisfy metalheads. All in all, we're calling it a good omen for the project.
The names of the No. 3 and No. 7 tracks on the album, 'Frustration' and 'Little Dog,' were also revealed over the last few days. They join the previously announced 'Junior Dog,' 'Mistress Dread' and 'Pumping Blood' at Nos. 6, 8 and 9, respectively.
In a recent interview with Billboard magazine, Reed once again expressed high levels of confidence and satisfaction about the record, declaring that the five musicians "pushed as far as we possibly could" while making 'Lulu.'
