(RockAAA) More details about the recent Lou Reed and Metallica sessions are coming out. In a new interview with New York magazine, Reed reveals the collaboration is based on songs for a theatrical production of Frank Wedekind's classic femme fatale "Lulu" plays.

"There are two stories 'Lulu's based on, and I rewrote 'Lulu' from the get-go, taking the original plot mostly 'Earth Spirit,' not 'Pandora's Box' and followed it essentially from the point of view of Lulu and the various people who love her, until she gets involved with Jack the Ripper," explains Reed. "The basics. So the Metallica version will have absolutely all of that and more. It'll probably come out by November."

Any chance of Metallica joining a "Lulu" production? "I don't think Metallica wants to be a band on Broadway!," chuckles Reed. "They're metalheads. They're not going to do that. But the version of the 'Lulu' music I did with Metallica is awe-inspiring. " more on this story
