METALLICA ALBUM WITH LOU REED FEATURES 19-MINUTE SONG

9/7/2011

The full track listing for the collaborative album by Metallica and Lou Reed, called Lulu, has been released, and it features a song called "Junior Dad" that clocks in at a super-sized 19 minutes and 28 seconds. Two other tracks, "Cheat On Me" and "Dragon," are over 11 minutes apiece, while several other songs are more than six, seven and eight minutes in length. The album's shortest cut, opening number "Brandenburg Gate," is a relatively paltry four minutes and 19 seconds.

 

  • "Junior Dad" is the song whose lyrics made Metallica guitarists James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett cry, as reported last month.
  • The cover art for the record has also been unveiled. It features a mannequin with no arms or legs and the title written across the cover in what looks like blood.
  • Lulu will arrive on October 31st worldwide and November 1st in North America. The set is based around a series of songs that Reed had composed for a theater piece based on The Lulu Plays, written between 1895 and 1904 by German playwright Frank Wedekind.
