Metallica and Lou Reed have posted up a 13-minute video online explaining their new collaboration album 'Lulu'.

The metal giants and the veteran rocker talk about how the project progressed from start to finish in a clip, which you can watch by scrolling down and clicking below. The LP, which was released earlier this week, is based around German playwright Frank Wedekind's 1913 play about the life of an abused dancer.

Drummer Lars Ulrich recently compared recording the joint project to '70s cult horror classic The Exorcist. He said: "I'm invigorated at how absolutely awesome the record turned out. Lou walked into the studio and about seven seconds later my head was spinning like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. It was so impulsive it'll take me years to access what happened."

The metal veterans, meanwhile, are currently working on a new album according to bass player Rob Trujillo. He explained that the follow-up to 'Death Magnetic' was the launch pad for "the beginning of something very, very cool".

Metallica will perform tracks from 'Lulu' with Reed on November 8 on Later… With Jools Holland.
