This one of the biggest collab for this year; Metallica and Lou Reed (Ex-Velvet Underground). Lou Reed describe to Rolling Stones, "A marriage made in heaven, I knew it from the first day we played together: 'Oh, man, this is perfection, right in front of me.'"
Reed and Metallica first played together in October 2009, at the 25th Anniversary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame concerts in New York.
Ulrich says the album is "90 percent" finished. But there are no release plans yet. Reed does not have a record deal, and Metallica are no longer on Warner Bros. "We are free to go wherever," Ulrich says. "I'm obviously psyched for people to hear this, in whatever way we feel is right."
