back LULU Album 2CD Set

  • Your Price $17.99

Double CD with 24 page booklet including all lyrics.  Produced by Lou Reed, Metallica, Hal Willner & Greg Fidelman and recorded April 2011 – June 2011 at HQ in San Rafael, CA.

The musical collaboration between Lou Reed and Metallica, "Lulu," was inspired by German expressionist writer Frank Wedekind's plays "Earth Spirit" and "Pandora's Box," which tell a story of a young abused dancer's life and relationships and are now collectively known as the "Lulu Plays." Since their publication in the early 1900's, the plays have been the inspiration for a silent film ("Pandora's Box," 1929), an opera, and countless other creative endeavors. Originally the lyrics and musical landscape were sketched out by Lou for a theatrical production in Berlin, but after coming together with the 'Tallica boys for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concerts in New York in 2009 they all knew they wanted to make more music together.  Fast forward to the end of April, 2011 when Lou and the band camped out recording at HQ studios in Northern California, bringing us to today and ten complete songs.
