Metallica and Lou Reed post sample of new song, “The View”

Yeah, calling Metallica a “punk band” can be some kind of stretch but you gotta check out this awesome audio sample of the song “The View” — taken from the forthcoming musical collaboration between the band and former The Velvet Underground singer/guitarist Lou Reed, Lulu — can be streamed at Amazon.com. It is also available in the YouTube clip here.

Lulu will be released in the US on October 31st on Warner Bros. Records and one day earlier (October 31) in the rest of the world through Universal Music. The album was co-produced by Reed, Metallica, Hal Willner — who has produced albums for Reed, Marianne Faithfull, and Laurie Anderson, among others — and Greg Fidelman. Fidelman also mixed the record. Metallica released their last “proper” full-length Death Magnetic in 2008, while Reed released his last solo album The Creation of the Universe in the same year.
