Lulu is a musical collaboration between Lou Reed and Metallica. It is inspired by German expressionist writer Frank Wedekind’s plays Earth Spirit and Pandora’s Box, which tell the story of a young abused dancer’s life and relationships, and are now collectively known as the Lulu plays. Since their publication in the early 1900s, the plays have been the inspiration for a silent film (Pandora’s Box, 1929), an opera, and countless other creative endeavors. The plays challenged the sexual and moral standards of their day and have remained highly controversial
The news that Lou Reed and Metallica were to collaborate was met with no small dose of trepidation. The combination of Metallica’s aforementioned troubles mixed with the fact that Reed is a mere blip on the Relevance Radar was a stark early warning to many. Lulu presents a set of songs inspired by German expressionist Frank Wedekind's early 20th century plays Earth Spirit and Pandora's Box
Lou Reed & Metallica should be commended for so bravely attempting to meld their very different musical approaches on their new collaborative album 'Lulu.

If Metallica was looking to fill what we're assuming is the only empty space on their award shelf, for "weirdest album of the year," well then, mission accomplished
The conception of the project began in 2009 when both Metallica and Lou Reed performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 25th Anniversary Concert. Released by (Lou Reed's) Sister Ray Enterprises In. We're Only in It for the Music, under exclusive license to Warner Bros. Records Inc. in the .
