Members of Metallica and Lou Reed both recently discussed their newly-announced collaborative project with Rollingstone.com. Speaking on the project drummer Lars Ulrich offered:
“I don’t think we’ve ever felt this free. There’s nothing that’s totally outside of the boundary for us, nothing that feels like ‘Oh, what happens if we go there?’ The strength of us… is it feels like we cannot land on a wrong place.”
According to Ulrich the album is around 90% finished and no label plans have been decided upon yet as both Metallica and Reed are currently free agents.
