Video: Teaser Clip Of Metallica/Lou Reed Collaboration

Posted by on September 18, 2011


The song is called “The View,” and like the TV yenta-fest, on initial listen, it doesn’t sound like something most Metallica fans will like. The 30 second clip that a Metallica fan site uncovered features Reed’s vocals higher in the mix than the music, and sounds about as musically misguided as William Shatner and Zakk Wylde’s cover of “Iron Man.” Things start to come together as Hetfield takes over for what’s presumably the chorus as the clip starts to fade. Lulu promises to be an interesting album, that’s for sure. The album comes out on November 1 on Warner Bros.
