Metallica and Lou Reed have opened up more about their unexpected musical collaboration.

They recently unveiled their debut single, ’The View’, which was met with heavily negative feedback from NME.com readers.

However, the generally unfavourable reactions did not seem to deter the musicians. Metallica’s drummer Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone:

We have m-e-t-a-l in our name. But we can go fucking anywhere and do anything.



Guitarist Kirk Hammett continued:

Lou and us – we're kindred souls. We both have a clear vision of what you should sound like and say. Also, he has an edge that totally fits. He speaks our language, slightly sarcastic and blunt, like another pea in the pod.



Lou Reed previously called their musical partnership a ”marriage made in heaven”.

Their joint album ’Lulu’ is set for release on October 31. You can find out more about the collaboration at loureedmetallica.com.
