Metallica and Lou Reed have posted a trailer for their forthcoming collaboration album 'Lulu', scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch it.

'Lulu', which is based around German playwright Frank Wedekind's 1913 play about the life of an abused dancer, is due for release on October 31, with the North American release following a day later on November 1.

The trailer, which is 57 seconds long, sees Reed, Metallica's frontman James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich discussing the album and how they've brought the best out of each other.

Reed, who has previously described the album as "the best thing done by anyone, ever", reveals in the video that he believes Metallica, who he calls a "power team" inspired him to be "the best I've ever been."

The promotional poster for the album was recently banned on tube trains and in stations by London Underground after bosses ruled that the artwork for the album, which you can see on the right of your screen, looked too much like graffiti.
