Lou Reed and Metallica's <i>Lulu</i> Gets Cover Art

Lou Reed and Metallica’s collaborative album, Lulu, now has a cover, and the thing is pretty scary. The album was inspired by Frank Wedekind, the German expressionist playwright behind the “Lulu plays,” which follow a young dancer who is abused. And the cover seems to follow along with that story, with a young girl/mannequin torso with an eerily real face. The album will be available on Nov. 1 in America on Warner Bros. Records.

The band is also set to appear on the BBC’s Later With Jools Holland on Nov. 8 and 11.
