Lulu is a collaborative album between rock singer-songwriter Lou Reed and heavy metal band Metallica.
It was recorded in San Rafael, California, during April through June 2011, after Reed had played with Metallica at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 25th Anniversary Concert, which led to them wanting to collaborate.
The album is the final full-length studio recording project that Reed was involved in before his death in 2013. The lead single, titled "The View", was released on September 27, 2011. The album itself was released on October 31, 2011, on Warner Bros. and Vertigo.
